Before reading on and clicking on the links, if you can't handle graphic pictures of gore, blood, and general mutilation caused by violence to people, and I mean more than a bloody nose, then just don't do it. If you're at work it's probably not wise to click either.
Warning over, the editor of ConservativeHome, Tim Montgomerie, has published two images that were taken in Zimbabwe of what happens to someone that doesn't support Robert Mugabe. The person in question is called Memory, and she had her buttocks repeatedly thrashed by wooden poles because she was an Opposition supporter.
This sort of brutality really does put into perspective the very concept of 'torture'. We hear so very often that Guantanmo Bay is an affront to human rights. One thing is for sure though..... they don't do this.
ConservativeHome should be praised for publishing images that the mainstream media would, and to be honest, could not. If an example were needed where the Internet rises above the mainstream media in it's capacity it is something like this.
