Yes you are going to get flamed! Be thankful it isn't in the manner of the video.
This might actually have been some kind of trial by fire, similiar to fire walking, where people walk on hot coals, it might have been some
kind of gauntlet or rite of passage, but these just were really not executions.
What kind of right of passage involves being struck with a large stick over and over again only to be followed with being thrown into burning
Your premise is crazy. I noted in my earlier post that the attempt was ever more brutal because they didn't have sufficient fire to cause a quick
Your cavalier attitude is pretty disgusting IMHO.
Some not purely effected by emotion would conclude that they didn't have sufficient fire to cause a quick death because they were not actually looking
to kill anyone with the fire.
In fact you don't know the context in which the video was shot at all or ended in death.
That is simply an assumption not supported by any evidence provided in this thread.
Since the video concluded with no one having recieved anything but superficial burns, with no type of fire, or fuel for a fire present that would have
been sufficient to result in death, and there is no corresponding news paper article or video news account to officially signify death occured, then
you really are basing that conclusion on a tremendous assumption.
It's pretty clear that no real preperations had been made in advance to execute these people, so its a pretty cavalier attitude to suggest that the
people were just too dumb to know how to burn someone to death.
Or how to start a proper fire.
While I am not an expert on tribal custom, I do know enough about building fires, not to use green unseasoned wood, as it takes a tremendous amount of
propellant over a prolonged period to dry out enough to actually burn continuously on it's own.
These people were not tied nor bound in any way, and this simply does not look like an execution.
No one certainly died in the videos, and you have no way to prove anyone died as a result of that.
The actual thread should be hoaxed with out some kind of proof, as there is absolutely no proof either that they are being accused of being witches
All you have is a video title on live leak to suggest that they are witches since the people speaking in the video are not speaking any language
commonly spoken on ATS.
What I do see is a lot of people here on ATS bashing various religions, promoting various religions, and decrying an event that there is NO EVIDENCE
to suggest actually is the event being described.
So based on common evidentiary standards from ATS to Courts of Law, I reject the emotional outrage some would employ to make a case for a wide range
of agendas and causes, based on an event that they are misrepresenting wholesale.
If you are claiming four people are being burned to death, and want to prove that you need some real proof that actually occured.
At best as things stand right now you have a case of assault.
The video in no way shape or form proves a murder(s) took place, or even suggest a murder could take place based by the method being used.
For all you know the video ended right there because the Town Sherrif came along and everyone ran away, and the people were being attacked for
stealing something, not for being witches.
This is simply yet another poorly researched event based on poor video evidence, that the Original Poster used emotion instead of fact to make his
Habeas Corpus (produce the body) is a fundamental legal protection in the Western World, this is an insuficient body of evidence to prove the claims
Without evidence that death has occured there can be no charges of murder.
Meanwhile a plethora of emotional driven posters have used it selfishly to promote their own religious and political causes and to bash one another,
and insult one another.
Seriously some people really need to get a clue, the site really is about people doing quality research and investigation.
What you imagine happened next to these people is just that, what you imagine happened next.
