'Torture' of kids in detention shows why we need a #BlackLivesMatter conversation in Australia
This article and the #DefineAboriginal article makes me think of the Alt-right movement in the USA after Donald Trump was elected to become President of the USA, in Nov. 2016. From the article: "UPDATE: July 26, 2016, 9:44 a.m. AEST Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has committed to a Royal Commission into the Northern Territory's juvenile detention system.

The joint inquiry with the NT Government will begin as early as possible, Turnbull said on ABC radio Tuesday, to "expose the culture that allowed it occur."

He continued, "We have here a very troubling state of affairs where clearly there has been mistreatment of young people."

Footage released Monday of the "torture" of juvenile boys has again drawn attention to accusations of institutional racism being levelled at the justice system in Australia.

The Don Dale Juvenile Detention Centre in the Northern Territory is being accused of gross mistreatment, including the excessive tear gassing of six boys been 14 and

Justice Dept. Shakes Up Inquiry Into Eric Garner Chokehold Case - NYTimes.com
Federal authorities have been investigating whether officers violated Mr. Garner’s civil rights in his fatal encounter with the police. But the case had been slowed by a dispute because federal prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials in New York opposed bringing charges, while prosecutors with the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department in Washington argued there was clear evidence to do so.

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, who as the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York oversaw the beginning of the federal inquiry before her appointment to Washington, has been considering for months how to proceed.

In recent weeks, the F.B.I. agents who have been investigating the case were replaced with agents from outside New York, according to five federal officials in New York and Washington. Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn are no longer assigned to the case. It is not clear whether civil rights prosecutors from Washington will work alone in presenting evidence to a grand jury in Brooklyn and in trying the case if charges are eventually brought.

The officials who described the reorganization did so on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly.
