Put The Lime In The Coconut, Part II: Law Enforcement, Gambian Style

I didn't make this up, folks. Think you've got problems? Read on.

We're reliably informed by Amnesty International, bes' li'l ole human rights organization around, that up to 1,000 folks in Gambia have been accused of witchcraft, removed from their homes, forced to drink various and sundry hallucinogenic cocktails and confined in prison camps.

It is said that many are forced to confess to being witches. It seems that a rolling caravan of witch hunters will arrive in a village early in the morning when most folks are in the rack, round up a few hundred at random, and away they go.
