John Smith grapples with what ...,
Updating RMS's homepage (on this cycle he's also written a brief, well stated article about dealing with
biological patents, well worth considering whatever
his deficits in compromising charm)
I ran into this story, about the
use of 'Diesel Therapy' in US prisons.
Presumably this method hasn't been erradictated since these
reports barely made the news during the early 90s.
It's not surprising, I suppose, that such torture methods (and for no purpose but simple cruelty)
are used in our prison system, albiet I'm a little surprised it was used on a
12-term, 63 year old conservative congressman
that apparently proposed a more thorough
CSPAN-like system ahead of his time
- and was dissappeared by this legal system for years, long before the "PATRIOT" act. It's still appalling
to read reports of it.
If you look around this gets promoted by a lot of New World Order conspiracists, who I'm still trying to figure
