These actions are just those of power hungry animals. Politics , in so many parts of the world have just become an excuse for the sadistic to have fun.

It would be nice to line them up and let these women beat them for hours in payback.

Holy cow!! this story is brutal!! I would think that is child abuse on the part of the Zimbabwean cop force. Im not on the up and up on their laws and stuff.. But its sertinly a heart breaking story to read.
Things are really bad in places like that in the world. And I just hope that mentality doesnt find its way to the states.
