Europe: It’s Forever been a Gitmo of the Human Soul


Metropolitan Police officers subjected suspects to waterboarding, according to allegations at the centre of a major anti-corruption inquiry, The Times has learnt.

The torture claims are part of a wide-ranging investigation which also includes accusations that officers fabricated evidence and stole suspects’ property. It has already led to the abandonment of a drug trial and the suspension of several police officers.

However, senior policing officials are most alarmed by the claim that officers in Enfield, North London, used the controversial CIA interrogation technique to simulate drowning.
A CIA technique? Funny that something that dates back to the days of the Dutch East India Company would suddenly have its’ patent awarded to Americans, but that’s just the way they are – one little idea enters their heads and it’s CIA waterboarding all day and night. All they can think about is how to say that a technique that the CIA only used 3 times can be called “widespread,” and indicative of the essence of the entirety of American culture.
There is no indication that the Police in London did any FEWER than that, and no indication that torture isn’t practiced across the morally superior continent of eternal righteous indignation.
According to a new study published on March 28 by the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Committee Against Torture, a Russian human rights organization, every 25th person in Russia is tortured, beaten, or harassed by law enforcement officials each year.
Putting them in the millions, and entirely normal to contemporary European culture, and entirely ignored because it didn’t prop up some adolescent hatred European societies harbor for the rest of the world.
