    @3. Surely not that useful.

    But I wonder about this sentencing. “The retired generals César Manríquez Bravo and Raúl Iturriaga Neumann, as well as brigadiers Miguel Krassnoff Martchenko and Pedro Espinoza Bravo were given the highest sentences in this trial of 13 years. All of them are already serving prison terms of over 200 years for dozens of other human rights violations trials.” Already serving over 200 years and they get another 13. So what? What would be wrong with slow dismemberment?

    Don't wonder any longer. All crimes must be tried to serve justice to the victims, to their families and to society at large. The Chilean murderers escaped justice for too long, but the country is finally catching up and sending a powerful message to would-be golpistas.
