Corporate prison thugs: things getting even worse for the Wierdsma family
Boulder DA: Is it wrong to give false testimony to a federal agency?
Thomas Wierdsma: No, happens all the time.
We reported a couple of times late last year on the outrageous case of Charles and Thomas Wierdsma. Charles is a corporate prisons executive (The GEO Group) who routinely beat his wife and Thomas, his dad (a GEO Group Sr. VP), threatened to use his federal government connections to get her deported if she didn’t shut up and like it.
GEO Group bills itself as “the world’s leading provider of correctional and detention management and community reentry services to federal, state and local government agencies,” which makes Thomas Wierdsma’s answer to the question at the top of the post here even more interesting, doesn’t it?
A jury in that civil case last year found Wierdsma guilty of outrageous conduct for the actions he took after his son was arrested and convicted of regularly beating his Hungarian-born wife, Beatrix Szeremi, for more than a year. Boulder District Attorney Stan Garrett’s office is investigating Thomas Wierdsma for possible criminal culpability in the matter related to his interference with the victim.
I wish for this PoS family the same as I do for all human beings: that they get precisely what they deserve, and not an ounce less.
