Although, I find this situation deplorable and the torturers despicable human beings, it's quite arduous for U.S. citizens to criticize other countries for doing, exactly what we are guilty, ourselves of doing.
With the well-known cruelty imposed by the Bush Administration, the whole world is cognizant of our torturing techniques. Of course, this doesn't include other abusive methods, about which we have no knowledge.

Revenge is a terribly, unhealthy character trait.
Not onl,y is it unChristian, it is childish behavior.

Social psychologist Ian McKee said,
'People who are more vengeful tend to be those motivated by power, by authority and by the desire for status. They don't want to LOSE FACE'/

I only wish I had thought of that.

Moses Akatugba has been freed thanks to the Amnesty campaign!

Today I got an e-mail from him via Amnesty! Excerpt:

"In May, my execution was halted and I walked free. Write for Rights letters saved my life!

Please, help others who are being subjected to human rights abuses, as I was. Sign up for the 2015 Write for Rights campaign.

"I am proof that Write for Rights letters work."

"Without the thousands of letters sent in support of my case, I might never have been granted my freedom. Three other people were pardoned with me.

"Amnesty International activists like you are my heroes. You've inspired me to become a human rights activist -- to fight for others.

"Will you join me? Will you help free the unjustly imprisoned as a participant in this year's Write for Rights?"


29 May 2015 - Nigeria: Pardoned torture victim 'overwhelmed’ by campaign to spare his life

".../... Moses is one of the core cases of Amnesty International Stop Torture Global Campaign and was highlighted in the 2014 Write for Rights campaign. In total, MORE THAN 800,000 actions were taken worldwide asking the Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan to commute the death sentence. ..."

" ... the outgoing Governor of Nigeria’s Delta State announced last night he had granted him a full pardon. ..."

In a statement following Governor Uduaghan’s announcement, Moses said: “I am overwhelmed. I thank Amnesty International and their activists for the great support that made me a conqueror in this situation.

“Amnesty International members and activists are my heroes. I want to assure them that this great effort they have shown to me will not be in vain, by the special grace of God I will live up to their expectation. I promise to be a human rights activist - to fight for others.”

Moses also thanked the human rights defender Justine Ijeomah, who leads the Nigerian NGO Human Rights Social Development and Environmental Foundation (HURSDEF), and Governor Uduaghan for “keeping to his word”. "
.../...

"Before leaving office today, Governor Uduaghan also commuted the death sentences of three other prisoners.

"As Nigeria’s new president, Muhammadu Buhari, takes office, Amnesty International is calling on him to immediately establish an official moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty.

"Approximately 1,500 people are currently languishing on death row in Nigeria, including juvenile offenders. In 2013, Nigeria resumed executions when four people were hanged despite a "voluntary" moratorium."
