From Rick Moran, American Thinker:

The Turkish government has arrested 6,000 military and non-military individuals in connection with the failed coup against President Erdogan.

Of those detained, more than 2700 are judges and prosecutors who have opposed Erdogan’s constitutional power grab. An unknown number of journalists, lawyers, and other regime opponents have also been arrested. Erdogan is taking full advantage of the crisis to “clean up” the military and the judiciary where most of the opposition to his rule is based.

This was no coup.  Over two thousand judges and prosecutors arrested as part of some imaginary coup.   If Erdogan is to be taken at his word, it would have been a failed rebellion.   Rather what we have is a Joseph Stalin style purge.
