Two Canadian soldiers who beat up a gay man will be serving time in prison rather than Afghanistan:
Eric Wright was sentenced to five months in jail and ordered to pay 6,000 euros ($8,500) in damages and Ryan Dowie was given 45 days in jail, a court spokesman told AFP.
The two men, both aged 22 at the time of the incident, were arrested following a brawl in May in which a 28 year-old gay man was hospitalised with serious injuries.
The victim claimed he was attacked after the soldiers had asked him whether he was gay but the court found insufficient evidence proving this.
Well, at least they asked before making an ass out of you and me. They did, however, make an ass out of themselves, their army and basic human values.
