Disturbing case from Jakarta

There are times when one can only shake one's head when reading the facts of a case. Consider this incident, described here in Friday's Jakarta Post: A first private in the National Military Police has been arrested for dousing an illegal parking attendant with gasoline and setting him on fire, apparently for refusing to pay a bribe equivalent to US$4.00. The victim was severely burned and is receiving medical care. The suspect is in military police custody and will be tried by a military court.
