Iraqi police using torture

Today, on the heels of a Guardian story about the new Iraqi government's use of torture, the BBC will run a story on a similar topic. The article covers much of the same material as the Guardian article, and notes the potential for the torture to deepen the sectarian divide and civil war. The article quotes Salman al-Faraji, a human right activist, who opines that the torture is widespread and systemic
Most cases are quite similar, the same methods are used," he said. "They torture them, breaking hands and legs. They use electric drills to pierce their bodies and then the killing is carried out at close range."

It's absolutely horrible to think about some of the things that are going on on those countries. How humans can be so evil to each other, I just don't understand.
