ALSO! Basically the most evil thing you can think of.

Man, if you didn’t hear about this when it happened, you need ot hear about it now:

Jamie Leigh Jones, an employee of KBR and a contractor in Iraq, was gang-raped by her coworkers, then imprisoned in a cargo container so that she couldn’t tell anyone.  She was freed after a sympathetic guard lent her his cellphone.  In response to this event, KBR banned the use of personal cellphones.

She is now suing for the right to sue, because her contract had an arbitration clause that prevents crimes committed against employees while in Iraq from being taken to American courts, and the Justice Department won’t investigate.

From Jezebel.

    Okay, now I feel nauseous.

    Yeah. Every time this comes up, it just completely blows my mind that this is an actual thing that actually happened.

    Civilization, it seems, is just a fancy coat of paint.

    it’s stories like this that really make me question whether or not I should have children.
    then again, if sane, moral, intelligent people stop having babies – the world will be an even scarier place.
