Perverted Or Just Kinky?

The recent videos published on the internet of people being abused by police officers in Egypt were hardly commented on in Egyptian mainstream media. I thought there would be a huge outcry (especially with the one showing a policeman inserting a stick in a man's asshole), but it didnt happen. Has it become an acceptable fact of life that law enforcement officers are perverted? Or maybe I am over reacting? It just struck me the other day that the name of our interior minister (Habib El Adly) sounds in Arabic like a sexual perversion, but then again it could just be my sick and twisted mind. It's worth having a debate on wether Egyptian police are perverts or just a little bit kinky, but you have to remember that the difference between kinky and perverted is that kinky involves using a feather. whereas perverted involves using the whole chicken. I wouldnt be surprized if entire farmyards (farmers included) can be found in Egyptian police cells.

  • I think that video would have to be "perverted." Maybe if he used a toothpick you could call it "kinky" but that thing was a HUGE STICK.

    Damn our filthy corrupted police. Have they no soul??

  • Officially, no torture has ever happened. Mainstream media is *official*, so in mainstream media: no torture can be mentioned.

    AlAhram rejected an article by Fahmi Howidi about the subject, but it was published by the Kuwaiti AlWatan and then by AlMasry AlYom.

    Then there's self-denial. Many people are not psychologically prepared to accept that such things actually do happen in the world. believe me when I say this. And I'm not talking about young people. They think that police abuse happens when an officers uses harsh words or punches a person in the shoulder, with no perception what so ever of how a man could be raped in the first place.
