COLOMBIA: Corrupt Police Aided Bogota's Fake Torture Brothel.


   Prostitution is legal in Colombia.
  But torturing and kidnapping unsuspecting clients is not.
  That appears to have been the modus for a band of 15 kidnappers, including four minors, arrested for operating in Bogota's Santa Fe neighborhood.
   They allegedly lured victims to the brothel where they were beaten and forced to give up their belongings and their credit card pins allowing the criminals to withdraw their money from ATMs.
  And, worst of all, they may have been aided...by corrupt police.
