Evidence of the complicity or direct involvement of government officials and police in hundreds of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines did not stop IBM from agreeing to provide surveillance technology to law enforcement in Davao City. https://interc.pt/2TZwEps
When IBM agreed to work with the Duterte family’s administration in 2012, his regime’s support of extrajudicial killings in Davao City had been well-established. (in partnership with @typeinvestigate) https://interc.pt/2JnqJqa
Many details of the operation remain murky, but based on interviews with Haitian law enforcement and government officials, as well as a person with direct knowledge of the plan, a picture of the clumsy effort emerges. (in partnership with Haïti Liberté) https://interc.pt/2TU5tMX
Even if IBM’s program was solely used to assist in legitimate police responses to crime and fires surveillance, researchers point out that it could have enabled extrajudicial killings simply by helping police capture or monitor everyday criminal suspects. https://interc.pt/2JnbnBV
“It’s the county’s responsibility to have a system set up so they know when people’s sentences end,” said Chris Benoit, an attorney for Noe Ortiz, a migrant seeking damages from the El Paso County jail for illegally holding him for 46 days. https://interc.pt/2Jq1Mun

According to our investigation with @theappeal, many immigrants languish in jail after they should have been released. The delays appear to be so common that some local attorneys accept them without protest. https://interc.pt/2U31mxS
Noe Ortiz, a 33-year-old Guatemalan migrant charged with “illegal entry” into the U.S., repeatedly asked his jailers why he was being held past the end of his sentence. They said they didn’t know. (in partnership with @theappeal) https://interc.pt/2JqVbQm
U.S. airstrikes are killing civilians in Somalia, a new @amnesty report says, refuting the Pentagon’s repeated statements that no civilians have died. U.S. attacks have at least tripled under the Trump administration. https://interc.pt/2Ju39Iq Comic: @GRRD / @thenib

“The privileged can break laws and not have to worry about it. There’s no difference between blacks and whites for using marijuana, or even selling marijuana, but blacks are almost four times more likely to be convicted,” said Sen. @CoryBooker. https://interc.pt/2Tkm1t4
In Davenport, Iowa this weekend, Sen. @CoryBooker offered veiled criticism of the light-hearted way two of his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senators @KamalaHarris and @BernieSanders, have joked about their past use of marijuana. https://interc.pt/2TSyQiH
