huh while at it, can they also re-instate the Abu Ghurhaib video's too!!

before one can point a finger at another person (country), they need to take the moot out of their own eye first!!

Youtube is right in this case, in my opinion.

We do lack laws, that work, in Russia. and it really is painful.

I just personally hope you don't watch this video and think "those russians are way too ugly cruel, not like us ___ans".

almost any person when told to be cruel and freed from responsibility, might go mad and be cruel beyond understanding. just remember the Stanford prison experiment (prisonexp.org/) .

I realise I'm missing the point of this blog post entirely, but let me be the first to say it – bless those poor unfortunate Russian skinheads! They look like such nice young men.

You ARE missing the point. If a criminal is given a prison sentence – that in itself is considered punishment enough for his crime.

Using a prisoner as a punching bag has nothing to do with his crime and everything to do with his captors going on a power trip at his expense.

There is evil in all societies – no one can make a generalization

Look at these photos from the TED conference about the prisoners at
Abu Ghraib.. by Americans .

Hard to believe, but it still happens everywhere.

I want to notice that it was a quelling of uprising in that prison.
