The Daily Mail shows us the barbarity of today's Iran, where executions take place in public.
Two more criminals have been publicly hanged in Iran as children looked on and people took pictures.
Flanked by masked hangmen, hoods over the heads of the condemned men were removed before the hanging, which took place in front of a giant portrait of the judge they had killed. Onlookers in the street and on the roofs of houses chanted and took pictures with mobile phones. Some laughed.
How appalling - the kind of degrading spectacle abolished in mid-Victorian times. The Mail readers must be outraged.
"I'm all for the death penalty ..."
"A few public hangings in this country might help deter the criminals ..."
"We should bring it back in the UK and stop pussy footing around."
"Job done! this is one aspect of Iranian law that we should start using now."
"Before we criticise other countries, let's look at our own. It was great once but not anymore. We don't even have punishment now."
"Medieval and barbaric it may be, but I bet Iran doesn't have anywhere like the problems that Britain has with crime !"
"this is what we need in this country as far as murderers and other violent criminals are concerned. Jailing them is expensive ..."
