This is creepy. It reminds me of a story about a woman being tortured by a Nazi during WWII. The things that were done to her by a single operative who kept coming back to her cell day after day were grotesque. She asked him why he was doing those things to her and he told her it was b/c she was Jewish, and Jews needed to be exterminated. Then she asked the next logical question: "If you're trying to get rid of us, why don't you just kill me? Why take the time to commit all these inhuman acts?" And the Nazi answered, "I'm doing all the worst things to you that I can think of, so that if you live and try to tell people about what we're capable of, no one will believe you."
