  1. To torture someone with iron bars is an attempted murder. But Byamukama tormentors are being treated with a mere slap on the hands. The guy could have died in shock.

    By the fact that these thugs now feel and look like idiots in the dock; torture or any crime does not only dehumanize the victim, but by the same measure, it dehumanizes the villains themselves.

    It is not surprising that; when the hunters have become the hunted, they were terrified of being tortured or molested by their suspected victims, if remanded in Luzira Prison.
