The defense for the Abu Ghraib: Wait a minute, you mean the fact that we excessively abuse prisoners on tv all the time does NOT make it ok for us to abuse prisoners like that in real life? WTF, I thought that because 24's Jack Bauer can torture people on tv by shooting a guy in the leg to make him talk that we could go that far in real life. Doesn't Hollywood really just mirror society?
Does Abu Ghraib really bother you?
Yes, these are human beings we are talking about here!
You know, now that you mention it, they aren't killing anybody.
It's never bothered me. It's just like the movies. Who really cares about the prisoners anyways?
Who really cares about the prisoners anyways?
I do, humans are humans. What about their human rights?
Prisoners lose their rights the moment they get caught, err, I mean are sentenced.
