I wrote about Iranian flogging almost a year ago. It still is disgusting although I guess it is getting slightly better. At least now they are “reviewing” the sentences of “death by stoning” and commuted some of the sentences.
According to the BBC, it is rare for someone to be stoned to death – they haven’t done it in a year. A YEAR?!?!? For a country the size of California, that seems like fairly recent behavior.
How do you stone someone “Iranian style”? Here is what the BBC reported:
The country’s penal code stipulates that before carrying out the punishment, men should be buried up to their waists and women up to their chests. The stones used must be large enough to cause the condemned pain, but not sufficient to kill immediately.
So if the stones don’t kill immediately that means it takes several strikes to do the deed.
I suppose that Iran is never going to perfect the atomic bomb. It seems too merciful for their enemies. I would think that they would instead just create big dirty bombs so that the enemies suffer over a long time from radiation poisoning and die slow miserable deaths.
I repeat my RANT from my original post on this subject:
PEOPLE OF THE WORLD – WE NEED TO CONDEMN IRAN FOR THIS TERRIBLE EXERCISE!
I am done with this topic for now but I reserve the right to rant more on it someday. I just hope the judicial system in Iran doesn’t give me reason to ever think about this.
