In my mind I was there to take the antlers off the deer


Quote of the Day: Staff Sgt. Calvin Briggs, convicted for running a “kill squad” that killed civilians in Afghanistan (other than the civilians they were ordered to kill, that is), said of cutting off fingers and other body parts of his victims as trophies: “In my mind I was there to take the antlers off the deer. You have to come to terms with what you’re doing. Shooting people is not an easy thing to do.” So he mutilated the dead in order to make it psychologically easier for him to kill people. So that’s okay then.
