Video Shows Torture of Recruits in Army of Brazil

The Brazilian army has launched an investigation after images of soldiers being beaten and tortured by their superiors were shown on television.

Globo TV broadcast a video and pictures of what it said were recently promoted sergeants apparently being subjected to initiation ceremonies.

They involved electric shocks, beatings and burning with electric irons.

The army admitted the video was authentic and suspended the battalion commander while the inquiry takes place

In a similar vein, but taking the bullying/torture angle to the n'th degree - and this may be a military 'urban myth' - but isn't it the Turkish Army that allows a CO to shoot up to 3 soldiers a year to maintain discipline and good order within his Regiment before he has to answer to higher authority.

Imagine it ......

I thought that those were British Army rules on exercising the troops!

I seem to remember from Victor Suvarov's " Inside the Soviet Army", that back in the old CCCP days, recruits were shaved, beaten and then ridden like pigs like in Deliverance. The suicide rate was really high, and most conscripts turned up tanked up on vodka as an anaesthetic. Furthermore Soviet WRAC's were treated as concubines by randy elderly Generals.

Only 3? Oh how do you narrow it down to just 3 a year.......

Perhaps the Brazilians should be told to try and bunk on the London tube?
