Score one for the little guys

Augusto Pinochet was indicted today for the kidnapping of nine and killing of one. From accounts that I have heard, this is just a drop in the bucket for Pinochet's tyranny over Chile. I had a spanish teacher who lived for 3 years in Argentina and heard stories about Pinochet's ruthlessness.

He ruled Chile from 1973-1990 and is said to have had around 3000 people executed or made to disappear. He also imprisoned 27,000 Chileans. And somehow the military rulers decided to let people vote on who they wanted for president and Pinochet lost but was commander-in-chief of the army until 1998 and then he assumed a seat on the senate. So apparently he kept his friends in the government happy, but of course not the Chilean people.
