Pluralistic: 15 Jul 2020 Daily links from Cory Doctorow: “Grace,” a 15-year-old Black girl, is doing jail time for failing to do her homework. She was “taken out of the courtroom in handcuffs,” and her mother was denied visitation and the right to bring her clothes and toys. “When Grace is brought out for videoconference status meetings with the court, the child is handcuffed and put in ankle shackles. She makes heartbreaking pleas to be returned to her mother.”

Also: McKinsey is making $100 million for its role screwing up America’s coronavirus response. And private equity companies are scamming to get Payroll Protection Plan money by “claiming to be multiple companies, all headquartered at the same address and using the same bank.”
