Esta mañana me he desayunado con esta noticia (bueno, realmente la he leido en la edición en papel de El Mundo, pero digitalmente la he encontrado en The Guardian):

Classmates on trial for 'torture' of pupil

Students making up an entire class in [censurado] have been accused of filming their torture of a new pupil and posting clips on the internet.

The 11 pupils, aged between 16 and 18, went on trial yesterday, facing between them a 31-page list of charges that include beating, kicking and sexually humiliating their victim, identified only as [censurado], 18.

Hagan sus apuestas: ¿dónde habrá ocurrido esto? ¿En alguna academia militar de los EEUU? ¿En alguno de sus hiperviolentos institutos?

Pues no, esto ocurre en la civilizada Alemania, de la moralmente superior Europa:

The attacks started weeks after Dieter joined the Werner-von-Siemens school in Hildesheim, near Hanover. His classmates took him to a store-room, where they stripped and severely beat him. They went on beating him at least twice a week over two months.
[...]
Dieter claims that one of his teachers failed to help despite knowing what was going on. The attacks ended only after a school psychologist was called in to treat Dieter, who was suffering from depression and other psychological problems.

Parece que el salvajismo no es sólo cosa de yankees, ¿no?
