The FBI is investigating allegations that guards physically abused inmates at a Jackson County jail.

The Kansas City Star reports [2]that the probe is focused on four recent cases involving male inmates who received injuries ranging from stitches and bruises to a broken neck.

Four guards accused of playing a role in the injuries no longer work at the jail.

Race didn’t appear to play a role, the newspaper reported, because two of the victims were white and two were black.

Jackson County also is investigating.
