Buncha B.S. They know right from wrong. what about the father and mother brother and sisters of the person killed. Noone cares for them, no they want the killers to go free slap em on the wrist F that.

I might add here, before the typical anti-Iran US crowd jump all over this, that the USA only banned juvenile executions in 2005. prior to that, there were literally dozens of 16 and 17 year olds on death row awaiting execution.
Since 1976, the USA executed 22 juveniles.

I think the other point the OP made was that Iranian law itself was not followed and that all subsequent protests were deemed detrimental to The State.
A very dangerous precedent.

murder is murder - they killed someone - doesn`t matter if it was intentional or accidental , in iranian law there is no difference - you kill someone the penalty is death, none of this 96th degreee manslaughter rubbish.

OP, are you wanting us to care? This is their country, their teens, and their problem!
apply rules, critical thinking and logic...
OK. So let me give you a hypothetical (As opposed to a Hype Pathetical)
Lets say you are driving a car in Iran and through no fault of yours somebody ends up in front of your car and is killed.

International laws ? Yeah they have an international law that says you can commit murder under the age of 18 and never be executed for it, but where the hell is the international law that says you can't murder a girl because she refuses to dress a certain way, or marry against her will:
Originally posted by DronetekFunny how that stance is popular when talking about countries other than the US. Yet, none of you same people have a problem telling Americans what to do, whats wrong with their country or who they should vote for.

Whatever happened to the 'global community'?
If this happened in the states everyone would be up in arms. Along with everyone here on ATS. If it happened here in Australia, it would be reported and commented on just the same.
There is plenty going on here as in the US that people ARE jumping up and down about.
Why are there so many threads at the moment about Russia and Georgia? Why was Serbia such a big issue not so long ago? Didn't the US use Saddams treatment of his citizens as an excuse to invade Iraq and have him executed? They should have been left to sort themselves out as well, but the US felt they needed to jump in. These examples are obviously bigger issues, but issues that should remain with the countries involved without international reaction based on your logic.

They were acting out the lawful orders given to them by the judge - the person resonsible for the comunication `error` will be punished as per the law.
As a driver of a vehicle you are responsible of being in control of a lethel weapon - if you kill someone in any country whilst driving you are held accountable for your actions.

Good on Iran! If they started doing it here then we might have less stabbings and shootings going on amongst kids.
