AFP: Argentina jails for life 15 'dirty war' cops

Published Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Courts in Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata Tuesday sentenced 15 former military and police officers from Argentina's "dirty war" to life in prison for taking part in human rights violations during the military dictatorship.

The sentences were announced on the eve of a sentencing hearing for ex-dictator Jorge Videla, 85, who faces a possible life sentence for killing dissidents during his 1976-1981 rule.

In the resort city of Mar del Plata, 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Buenos Aires, a former army officer and two ex-marines were convicted of kidnapping and torturing nine opposition members at a navy facility in the port city during the 1976-1983 regime...


Oh yes, the same can and will happen in our lifetime, in not too distant future, I hope.

Of course! The 'arrest' part. What did you think I was talking about, Cheney??

Now if we could just get the cops to arrest the real criminals instead of shooting woodcarvers in the streets.
