here in USA Today about a disturbing case from the Maryland National Guard. A Black officer candidate made to wear a heavy chain?
"[Sgt. Bruce] Weaver's case represents a wider problem for the National Guard whose units in each of the states, territories and District of Columbia operate with a great deal of autonomy and with little oversight of how various units respond to complaints of inappropriate conduct, such as allegations of racism, sexual harassment and assault. The National Guard Bureau in Washington, which referees appeals between state Guard units and troops, serves largely in an advisory role."
