Political Cartoon: Stone, You are the Lesser Punishment

Political Cartoon: Stone, You are the Lesser Punishment

Stoning is Barbaric. I just had draw a cartoon about it, granted there is nothing humorous about the subject… Even a cartoon will be a dark one.

Sad that stoning does not even make the top-ten

by MM on

After seeing your cartoon and Larijani's comment, I did a search and it turns out that stoning does not even make the top-ten grusome methods of execution, from this author's view: //listverse.com/2007/09/12/top-10-gruesome-methods-of-execution/ .  Some of the pictures at the site are aweful, but, they are all (including stoning) barbaric acts and should be out-lawed.  Here is the top ten:

10. Brazen Bull

9. Hanging Drawing and Quartering

8. Burning

7. Ling Chi

6. Breaking Wheel

5. Boiling

4. Flaying

3. Necklacing

2. Scaphism

1. Sawing


HHH, actually if you....

by KavehAhangarAdel on

read the article it refers to the comment by Mr. Larijani claiming that Stoning is a "lesser" punishment as it gives a chance for survival.  Having witnessed a stoning as a child back home, I can say that that is hogwash.

Statistically, hangings still out number stonings in Iran, so figuratively speaking hangings are still the "King". 

I appreciate your comment. Humanity has a long ways to go, as long as we deal with crimes with capital punishment we will not progress as humans.

Agha Kaveh,

I think the arrow should've pointed toward the stone not the rope, & stone would've said "You're the lesser punishment, I'm the king" because the judge reduced the sentence from stoning to hanging, na?  :)
