This is the Superior Court building in downtown Phoenix,
where our 'toughest sheriff in America", Arpaio reigns.
All them boxes are where the detainees are kept before
seing sentenced. I think the wires are just for lighting;
the actual waterboarding occurs elsewhere.

I keed! I keed! The do the waterboarding here, of course!

//No but seriously this is looking up the building. I have no idea what's with all the wires;
they weren't there when I took the picture (well..I didn't see them).

Indianapolis was not always Indiana's state capitol; until 1826, the state capitol was Corydon. This was the original capitol building there, constructed with 2.5 foot thick walls of Indiana limestone.

City Hall, Rome, Italy
The Romulus and Remus Suckled by a She-Wolf statue can be just barely discerned to the left of the building.
I considered using a shot of it including the wall of City Hall, but wasn't sure people would buy that.
Apparently, the Equestrian Statue of Emperor Marcus Aurelius is the only equestrian statue of an emperor to survive to the present.

This is Oakland, CA City Hall, featuring a bust of Frank Ogawa, two days before they removed the Occupiers from Frank's plaza. These protesters were also not photogenic, but since I made the effort, here it is.
