As many as 80 people were publicly executed in North Korea earlier this month, some for offenses as minor as watching South Korean movies or possessing a Bible.
Apparently, cell phone use can get you executed as well.
According to the source 10 people from each named city was taken to stadiums and crowds of about 10,000 each (including children) was made to watch as they were tied to stakes a white bag placed on their heads and machine-gunned!

South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo reported that the so-called criminals were put to death in seven cities across North Korea on Nov. 3, in the first known large-scale public executions by the Kim Jong-un regime.


“I heard from the residents that they watched in terror as the corpses were (so) riddled by machine-gun fire that they were hard to identify afterward,” the JoongAng Ilbo source said.

Most of the Wonsan victims were charged with watching or illegally trafficking South Korean videos, involvement in prostitution, or possessing a Bible.

Relatives or accomplices of the execution victims implicated in their alleged crimes were sent to prison camps

The first thing that comes to mind is something I heard from an ATS thread couple of days ago:

Christian Group Uses Giant Balloons To Drop Bibles On North Korea.


It is a shame that in today´s world some people have to go through something like this, that there are still countries, who act like this.

A Colorado-based Christian group is air-dropping Bibles on North Korea.


Well, that didn't go as planned.

Maybe they should have dropped Snickers bars instead.....

Is there any verification of this? It sounds pretty sensationalized- even for North Korea.

Contrarily Jesus will save them.
This world we live in is hopeless, a bible gives hope.
Jesus never promised to save anyones life in this world, a bullet in this world is better than eternity with out God

Sad to hear women forced into prostitution and people watching videos are killed as well

I love it when atheists trumpet how wonderful their beliefs are, here we see atheism unbridled.

Sadly atheist, Muslim, Christian or whatever, people are evil.

I understand poking fun at Kim is all well and good but what about other people who might be offended by what you have just posted.

I don't believe everyone here is as comfortable with 'funny' racism as you are.

There are two things here that don't follow.
1. Atheists trumpet how wonderful their beliefs are ... which I don't think is the case, it's just religious people constantly challenge the possibility of a fully secular society which means people have to argue how a society could work without religion.

Which leads directly to point two ...

2. This is Atheism unbridled:

North Korea is an example of a country that has a state religion because they believe its needed to control people. It's an example of people staring down their noses at the entire human species and thinking we can't carry on without the supernatural or faux wondrous lording over us.

This is in no way similar to American Atheists who push for the opposite of this. They push for the complete non-deification of Gods and people alike.

If this is an example of anything, it's an example of why you don't let paranoid narcissists run countries.

Edit: that's if the report is even accurate

But... Baby Jesus is fictional... made up... NOT REAL.

how do you compensate? Well, without murder...?

I know, we'll kill lots of people to justify our weird belief= system!

If thats your opinion then fine, I will ding and dong away

Its just a little sad that so many pay the price for so few.
Its also a little sad when atheist, Christian, whoever, take the high moral ground.
People are evil and extremists come from all beliefs

Yes I believe better to suffer here on earth than live separated from God, the Creator.
Your opinion is valid, just not to me.

If I'm not mistaken, he's quoting a 'verse' from one of the Kim songs in "Team America: World Police", which was actually pretty funny. Similar to South Park, they roasted everyone in that one.

Snickers bar would result in the same death penalty. They don't manufacture snickers bars in N. Korea.

Anything sent across the border is just as likely to get someone killed. They really don't need a reason at all some people are born into labor camps for crimes of the parents...

You run the risk of getting killed everytime you get in a car, plane, bus, it doesn't matter.

What people are willing to risk their lives for is bigger than life they are being forced to live.

I would like to hear from a few more 'legitimate' sources regarding this story. Fabricated stories of North Korean draconian punishment have been published for many years, and there are a few things that don't ring true in this one.

Unfortunately, you're right.

Even a truck load of Snickers bars dropped directly on Kim's place of residence wouldn't do any good.
It seems the only thing that puts their dear leader in his "happy place" is Dennis Rodman...

Little Kim is a quite ruthless, and I think a little bit crazy too

I was thinking the same thing about Rodman wondering why all of the Atheist who want all Christians dead aren't lighting his twitter feed or something asking how to gain access to the Utopia that is N. Korea.

I read both Fox articles and the S. Korean article. The Bible droppers were hardly negligent in their bible dropping in rural areas using GPS.
The majority of executions seem to occur in developed areas, and be related to a mass sex scandal. Hardly the result of some Christian missionaries sending Bible's.
At least you are a reasonable person I respect that. Most of the people will just continue to spin this as Christians are responsible for Christian deaths. It makes them feel great inside where there is emptiness.
