Video of protesters stopping Iran hanging hits Internet


rawstory.com

Stunning footage has emerged of protesters in the Iranian city of Sirjan rescuing two men from being hanged by the regime.

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Saturday, shows a brutal clash between Iranian authorities and protesters that was largely overlooked until Gateway Pundit found video footage of it. A Reuters report from last Wednesday stated that security forces "shot dead two gunmen" in the melee that followed the rescue, but, as Jim Hoft points out at Gateway Pundit, "the only ones with guns in the video are the regime thugs."

It seems to be getting worse by the minute over there and one has to wonder how long until one drastic event starts a revolution over there .
As you will be able to see from this graphic video we may be very very close to that one " drastic event " that sets everything in motion .

Be advised the video is graphic , thank God these guys were saved but please use your discretion when viewing .

I wonder just how controlled is the internet in Iran right now ? I remember a few weeks ago Iran cut the net to its people . Its little wonder as to why they did this as the more of its people see video's such as this will only feed the growing discontent .

Seeing how important a regime change is to the west as will as the people of Iran I can't help but wonder just how much special opp's / funding some of these groups in Iran are receiving from Western governments ?

How people can sit back and defend the Iranian leadership is beyond me.
They think they have to pick a side when it comes to Isreal/Iranian hate.
Yes, they are both screwed up governments, but I refuse to take sides when I see crap comming from both countries.
Damn Im glad I dont live in a fcked up world like that.
Good for these people, they need to watch over their own since their govt doesnt give a damn about them.

Just to play devil's advocate
The Shah of Iran was installed in 53
Once U.S. has it's grip on sovereingnty will it ever lose that grip?

Just playing devil's advocate that's all

That is the most powerful footage i've ever seen. Especially from a cell phone.

That video will cause some ripples world-wide, if not in Iran.

Supposedly they were bank robbers that were being lynched, not dissidents, but I have a hard time drinking that Kool-Aid.

For all we know there is a chance you could be right . But seeing how these people were rescued buy a large group while guns were going off in the back ground I am inclined to think that they weren't bank robbers .

Things are definitely brewing over there .

Actually according to the report the , and this is kind of mixed up, it said at first after they were cut down it is believed one of the men was already dead. Then further down it said suppressive forces later rounded up and re-hung the two guys. Either way my thoughts are with all the Iranian dissidents.

Which report says that? I don't see that information about either the ones that were cut down being dead or re-lynched in the article from the OP.

We get it.

The current regime is evil and unpopular.

There are freedom fighters who need assistance from the USA.

It would be morally wrong to NOT intervene.

Even if it means more budget cuts and higher taxes.

Actually I think that approach would be the worst possible scenario to take place .

The U.S needs to stay away from this one and if they are to get involved then it should be in the form of funding to the various opposition groups .

Lest we forget it was U.S involvement that over through Iran's democratically elected government that lead to the conditions that brought about the current regime .

As much as the people of Iran may long for a more westernized country I think that there desires fall far short of wanting or welcoming direct U.S involvement .

You know when the Romans crucified Jesus they stuck around and waited for him to die!

Do people really imagine this is how state executions are carried out in Iran?

One thing is for sure, you aren't going to rescure anyone from Lethal Injection in Texas's Death House.

I truly can't believe how guillible the members of ATS can be at times.


Iran is one of the countries carrying out the highest number of executions annually. At least 177 people were executed in 2006, according to campaign group Amnesty International's annual report for 2007


Adnkronos.com

Laugh out loud Texas kills more people than that in a year!


WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 /Standard Newswire/ -- The Federal Bureau of Prisons and 36 states held 3,254 inmates on death row at the end of last year, which was 66 fewer such inmates than at the end of 2004, the Justice Department�s Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) announced today. The 2005 drop was the fifth consecutive year the number of prisoners with a death sentence had fallen. There were 3,601 death row prisoners on Dec. 31, 2000.

Wow! Iran sounds safer to me!

Yes but just what are the respective people being put to death for , political beliefs or crimes such as murder ?

As for the officials not sticking around till the job was done that could simply be a matter of numbers i.e the fairly large crowed , but admittedly thats speculation as I have no way of knowing .

Good points you rase none the less

"During the clashes yesterday morning, people took advantage of the chaos and removed the prisoners from the scene set up for their hangings. According to earlier reports on Tuesday, one of the prisoners was thought to have been killed.

Having lost the control of the situation, the suppressive forces mobilized more of their agents across the city and re-captured the two prisoners and brought them back to the hanging ropes
