U.N. Troops Fight Haiti Gangs One Street at a Time - New York Times

In case you thought that the overt political use of psychiatric detention was a thing of the past:
U.N. Troops Fight Haiti Gangs One Street at a Time - New York Times: "Mr. Mulet, of the United Nations, said he believed that the gang leaders were beyond rehabilitation. “They’ve been killing people, kidnapping people, torturing people, raping girls,” he told reporters recently in Washington. “It is very difficult to reinsert into society someone like that. A psychiatric institution would be the best place to place them in the future — after we arrest them.”"
