Default Killing for sport

Beyond Imagination. 12 US soldiers charged with killing civilians for sport and collecting body parts as trophys. Fingers.

I guess you're not familiar with scalping? This isn't something new. I'm only amazed it's not more widespread.

Anyboady else click and get the "lucky winner" bullshit pop up? It said cnn.com at the top, but who knows, would those asshats actually allow this sleazy marketing on their site, or do I have some crap running on my puter?

12 soldiers have been charged, some with pre-meditated murder and possessing body parts. I wish it was bullshit too.

Yeah I got that part, sickening for sure, as is ALL war. When I clicked through your link, I got a pop up from one of those run around in circles marketing things.....you know " you have won a free lap top" deals that you never actually get untill you sign up for 20 "offers" I just wondered in CNN was getting hard up enough for cash that they put that up, or if something snuck past my security?
