The article states the bruises are still visible, even after being held in prison 4 five days. Most cases of abuse of power do not take place in front of witnesses for some reason. (Perhaps fear of being caught and hopefully some sense of shame.)

I've shared that opinion with my representatives in government....for what that is worth & with my retailers.
