The word 'Evil' isn't used much in a professional sense. It is an inexact term. One mans evil is another mans pre-emptive war to stop Saddam from using WMD's... ahem. Psychologists & scientists don't like to use the term. Is someone evil if they hurt people as a result of suffering from szchitzophrenia?Certainly not. Is euthanasia evil? You can argue back and forth.

But make no mistake. There is evil in the world. True, concentrated evil. Well documented, and Government sanctioned. More specifically, there are evil people. People who's actions are so beyond the pale of human decency and compassion that no other word describes them. And even when these evil acts are stopped, those responsible continue to live their lives without punishment. Below are three stories. You can do some googling on your own, I could only take so much before I began loosing all my faith in our species again and had to stop.

The stories are about how a hospital in Austria killed approx 800 children in order to study their brains during WWII. One of the doctors who was right in the thick of it, is still alive today. He has never served a day of jail time. There is a documentary coming out called "Grey Matter" that deals with this story. I honestly don't think I could watch it. The stories below were awful enough:

I don't know about you, but I'm going to go crawl into bed and hope the nightmares don't keep me awake all night.
