Another Kind of Terror

Damn this is creepy.

MADRID, Spain (CNN) -- The body of a Spanish police officer who was killed in a raid on suspected Islamic terrorists was removed from its tomb Sunday night, dragged across a cemetery, doused with gasoline and burned, a Spanish police official told CNN.
I don't believe in evil, at least not in the religious sense of the word. But this makes me think of gothic horror novels, not politics.


UPDATE: CNN completely changed that story. If you follow the link now there is no mention of what I excerpted. Here's a cached version at Google where you can read the original before they purged it.
