    The Sendero Luminoso

    Today's genocidal maniac of the day is... Abimael Guzman, leader of The Shining Path
    The Communist Party of Peru ( Spanish: El Partido Comunista del Perú), more commonly known as the Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso), is a Maoist guerrilla organization in Peru. The more familiar name distinguishes the group from several other Peruvian communist parties with similar names (see Communism in Peru). It originates from a maxim of José Carlos Mariátegui, founder of the original Peruvian Communist Party: "El Marxismo-Leninismo abrirá el sendero luminoso hacia la revolución" ("Marxism-Leninism will open the shining path to revolution").[1]

    Here's more, if you care not to read all of the nastiness.

    Theodore Dalrymple in an article published September 6, 2006, stated that "The worst brutality I ever saw was that committed by Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) in Peru, in the days when it seemed possible that it might come to power. If it had, I think its massacres would have dwarfed those of the Khmer Rouge. As a doctor, I am accustomed to unpleasant sights, but nothing prepared me for what I saw in Ayacucho, where Sendero first developed under the sway of a professor of philosophy, Abimael Guzman." [27]

    That's right.  "...I think that it's massacres would have dwarfed those of the Khmer Rouge."
    Mercy, mercy me.
    So why is Guzman our special little guy today? Let's show him what he's won!
    A verdict is expected in the retrial of the founder of Peru's bloody guerrilla movement, the Shining Path.

    Former philosophy professor Abimael Guzman faces a possible life sentence for his role in a 12-year rebellion in which around 70,000 people died.

    Ah, those Brits.  BBC does it again.
    So for crimes against humanity, you, Abimael Guzman, win a life long stay at a Peruvian prison.  Enjoy! 
    I hope that he doesn't find it a rich recruiting environment.  God, I really hope so.
