And then you see something like this and you really can't laugh:
A British soldier was arrested today after he left a roll of film at a photo store in Staffordshire that appeared to show an Iraqi prisoner being tortured, the Defense Ministry said today.
The film depicted a bound and gagged Iraqi inside a net that was suspended from a forklift, according to The Sun newspaper, which first reported the story this morning. The Sun also reported that the roll included pictures of soldiers performing sex acts near Iraqi prisoners.
The story came to light after a lab technician who was developing the film alerted the local police. The police arrested the soldier at his home in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Damn unpatriotic film developers.
