Prisoners of Love

This is interesting, and supremely irritating in a way. In the same manner that Republicans can get away with more wasteful spending and Democrats can get away with a more proactively interventionist foreign policy precisely because it goes against their respective reputations, Liberals can be tough on crime without any real political backlash. If this "super jail" had been announced during the Mike Harris era, the article would not only have mentioned the party in power, but also implied that Tories were just plain mean for wanting to abuse precious little misunderstood teenagers. Here, objections to the facility are reported in a neutral tone, and the bulk of the article focuses on facts about the jail itself. What Liberal Media? Oh, right...
