2014: A.R. and N.J., a double hanging caught on video

February 15th, 2017 Headsman

Warning: Mature Content. Two men die in this video.

    Horrific but striking. Was that Cotton Mather or the Newgate Ordinary on the megaphone? There seems to be a striking resemblence between the rituals of capital punishment in contemporary Iran and in Britain and British America at the time of the Bloody Codes. The “dying game” Majid Kavousifar (I noticed there’s a link, above), as some of the more political cases, suggest some similarities in the cultures of resistance, as well.

  2. According to Chinese history books -not too reliable- the public executions during the reign of Empress Wu were held with the victims thoroughly gagged.

    They should have cut off the tongue of that hysteric speaker and then hang him for good ! Allah is not akbar who tolerates such moron !

  4. The Islamic Republic of Iran is a blight upon this earth. Simply a light version of Daesh/ISIS. I hope it disappears soon.
