When I read articles like this I get soul-sick. I truly do not understand the male psyche in so many ways, but I do understand that if these type of torture initiation programs continue to exist we will always have abusive men ‘protecting’ others with cruelty under the guise of a uniform that is suppose to stand for something else.
If this is a product of Creationism/evolution we aren’t very advanced.
This is a BBC article about British Marines. I hope American Marines don’t initiate each other like this. If they do that might explain Jeff Gannon’s Marine Corp.
A criminal inquiry is being carried out after a film apparently showing a Royal Marine recruit being beaten unconscious was leaked to a newspaper.
The footage, obtained by the News of the World, appears to show two naked men being forced to fight each other as part of an initiation ceremony.
Twelve new recruits who had just finished their 32-week commando training were alleged to have taken part in the initiation ritual, while around 40 other marines – also stripped naked – watched.
The fight appears to have been “directed” by two non-commissioned officers. One was dressed in a surgeon’s outfit, the other dressed as a schoolgirl.
The abuse of human beings in every way, shape and form MUST stop.
