A few days ago in the country I have to call my “origins”, one of the most disgraceful acts that I’ve ever heard of in my whole life took place.
The last time I went to that country was in 2003 and hands down I will never go again. Its become so corrupt its not even humane anymore.
A young boy of 13, Rajon. A poor boy. He stole something. He didn’t rob a bank, he didn’t shoot someone. He helped sell vegetables for his family. He one day allegedly tried to steal a rickshaw. SUCH A TERRIBLE CRIME. My foot.
3 men. Tied him to a pole. One recorded. One beat him with a rod. Beat the crap out of him. Literally murdered him in front of an audience. The autopsy showed 60 injury marks, and that he died of brain hemorrhage.
One man fled to Saudi Arabia. And two stayed. All three have been arrested. One man on TV today was pleading for mercy. My first opinion was what happened to when the boy was pleading for mercy? My second opinion was yep hes gonna get what he deserves. I had no sorrow, no sympathy for that man. None whatsoever.
The pain and torture the boy went through was just unacceptable. The misery that the parents are put through.
A BOY. A YOUNG BOY.
I have cousins that age. That I still see as my babies. And they do that?
Its just sick.
That’s not the only story. There’s more. Much more.
