Zachary Simmons, the San Joaquin County corrections officer accused of raping and sexually assaulting multiple female inmates, was in court Monday. KCRA 3 spoke with one of the survivors who testified against him. She claims the sexual assaults against her were in retaliation for speaking up about his treatment of other inmates. She said the attacks would happen always at night, always in the shower and always with another corrections officer standing guard. Sheriff Patrick Withrow responded to KCRA via zoom call and said, "We will not stand for anyone having any type of misconduct at our department." Well, Sheriff, if officers are raping inmates while other guards stand by, what do you call that? Surely, others in the department are aware of whats going on, so it kind of seems like Withrow is just out of the loop.

Unfortunately, it looks like we are at a stalemate at every turn as the Biden administration has taken steps to alter U.S. policies on immigration by attempting to put a 100-day moratorium on deportations.
