Feds Ready To Tackle Local Failures At Jail?

The ample (in one case, plain-as-your-face) evidence of misconduct and maladminstration at the Allegheny County Jail apparently has reached a point at which even the county executive's myopic focus on blemish avoidance (during a gubernatorial run), and the lack of an angle adequate to motivate a politically attuned district attorney to perform his duty, can no longer keep a lid affixed. The FBI is on the case.

If it develops that guards believed they could get away with battering a harmless prisoner's face, what would that say about Warden Rustin, County Executive Onorato, County Manager Flynn and District Attorney Zappala?
