In the comments people were mentioning torture parties Africa, but I saw this on Spartacus (the TV series). Basically, they were having cocktail parties while torturing and murdering people at the same time. That was one of the meanest things I’ve ever seen! I mean how can someone have a cocktail party and see this suffering and participate in it with no heart or empathy, even if the person tortured is a traitor!
But apparently, plenty of real people have done stuff like this. I guess it’s kind of like people having a party at a lynching or beheading – very common actually!
