This is hard to believe, yet true.  Milgram would be shaking his head.

Unsurprisingly, the defendant in this court case is now appealing.

Judge Uses Electroshock in Court on Suspect, like a live Milgram

Let's keep in mind Steve Kinney's poignant reference last time this
conversation (and my sadly ascerbic and vehement dialogue last reared
its ugly head):
 Rachel Corrie’s 12th Anniversary of Death
 Rachel Corrie was crushed to death in the southern area of the Gaza
 Strip on Mach 16, 2003. Rachel expired due to being demolished, and
 while putting herself in the course of the military bulldozer to
 shield their house and your family…

We can hope that Ms Corrie receives some reparations, although the
Israeli "infestigation" was of course cooked before it began...
