Skip to comments.Iranian Punishment for 8 year old bread thief
Posted on 05/11/2007 1:45:31 PM PDT by britemp
I thought they cut the hand off for stealing.
Plenty of Freepers think that this sort of punishment is “justice” and call for it regularly. Hey stealing is stealing.
This is a street performance that the man does with his son to earn money.
It is not a punishment for stealing bread.
Don’t be. Someone will be along shortly with a link showing it to be a common trick performed in the streets of India and Pakistan.
Not much has changed since the 10th century.
Yup. This one’s pretty lucky. When I was in Saudi, a British Nurse had her hand **pulled** off.
They scored it first...
ow. What did she do?
huh? Do you really think that way?
I guess the penalty for minors is running over their wrist with a truck.
Are you trying to start something with someone?
Street trick or punishment, that’s some damn cruel $@!?.
Putting a kids arm under a truck tire for jollies.
Evacuate the woman and children.........then push the big red button.
OMG...How could they do such a thing to a baby?
‘This is a street performance that the man does with his son to earn money.

Oh, that’s OK then.
The people paying to see this need rounding up and shooting.
(Does that really need a < /sarcasm> tag?)
This has been shown and debunked a 1000 times.
It was a traveling freakshow sort of thing, raising money doing stunts.
Kids have amazingly flrxible bones.
Still child abuse
The blanket has supports on either side of his arm, the tire doesn't apply any pressure to the arm.
Notice how excited they get over doing this...

Remind me not to ask you to babysit. . . . . .
“Plenty of Freepers think that this sort of punishment is justice and call for it regularly. Hey stealing is stealing.”
You are a liar! There is not one Freeper who condones this sort of barbarism! In fact, it is the Freepers who are standing up against it, unlike you and your buddies. Your disguise is pathetically thin. You should return to the Daily Kos, MoveOn.org, Code Pink, ANSWER, etc for a refresher course on how to infiltrate. Barbarism like yours betrays your identity among the civilized.
The perp was eight-years-old.
Aw, come on, every kid I’ve ever baby sat survived.
[and most of them have gotten over the bad dreams]...
Yes it has. That was a pic of an 8-year-old Mitt Romney being punished by Mormon Elders for scribbling profanity in "The Pearl of Great Price".
No, it isn’t OK. I don’t condone it. But this has been posted many times and it’s best to inform people what’s really going on.
This is kind of a geek act. People are just on the street passing by and stopping to see what’s going on. Some people may decide to give this guy some coins.
It’s how he feeds his family.
My first thought was the same. Then I began thinking about what I was seeing, and reading some of the other posts. There some interesting things in the photo. The kid looks Indian, not Iranian, but more than that he/she doesn’t seem concerned about the coming punishment. What kid do you know would stay still while their arm was crushed? Their are no guys in robes holding the kid down. The guy next to him isn’t concerned. Also, don’t they cut off the hand according to Sharia law?
I don't advocate the US intervening in Iran's internal affairs as long as those affairs don't threaten the peace of the civilized nations of the world, but it seems to me that the less barbaric and more moderate people we hear about in those barbaric hellholes could do something to keep such inhuman atrocities from being perpetrated on children and sexually "impure" women. Even more moderate Islamic nations treat their miserable subjects more humanely than monsters like the Tehran mullahs and their ilk do.
I have said here before that I believe Islam is the greatest danger to humanity that has ever existed on this planet. When I see just how cruel, vile, and wretched Islam actually is when given free rein it only confirms what I already believe about it.
I have come to the conclusion that this is a stunt. Notice the microphone in the man’s hand.
If it were punishment, I doubt they would be nice enough to put a towel underneath his arm.
If what you say is true, and I have no reason to believe otherwise since I haven't heard of this sickening "stunt' before, then I will modify my previous post. If that stunt is faked, then I believe the Islamics who perform that kind of cruel stunt on children or women are inciting other Islamics who believe in traditionally harsh Islamic punishment for lawbreakers to actually perform similar atrocities for real on women and children "sinners" who don't toe the Islamic line in every jot and tittle.
Aside from this atrocity which may or may not be authentic, there are many reports from Islamic dominated nations and cultures stretching from the southern Philippine Islands to the west coast of Africa that describe inhuman atrocities being routinely committed in the name of Islamic "justice". And In My not so Humble Opinion the fake tormentors are still guilty of obscene cruelty and are acting in a far more inhumane manner than wild 4-footed predators who kill by instinct in order to satisfy their hunger. Inciting cruelty on helpless victims is equally as evil or more so than inflicting the cruelty in person.
After 1400 years of vicious inhumanity in the name of Allah and his vile Prophet, Islam remains formed in the image of it's original designer and the master deceiver of humankind, no less than the rebel Archangel Lucifer himself, aka Satan. If anyone thought that Soviet/Mao style aggressive communism was the greatest threat that Western civilization has ever faced they were either forgetting, misjudging, underestimating, or overlooking Satan's own hellish religion known as Islam.
From what I hear, those kids you babysat turned into model citizens, a complete 180 from what they initially were.
Oh, and møøselimbs? Here's a tip:
REAL prophets climb mountains to be closer to God.
They don't crawl into holes to listen to the hissings of The Serpent...
True, but some of them are still a little twitchy...
Only when certain things are mentioned.
Never knew that the theme from Hee-Haw could be used to coerce good behavior.
I shall keep it in mind for future use, i.e. nephews misbehaving.
What the photographs actually depict (according to the operator of the site that originally published them) is performers hustling money from onlookers by staging an act, one in which a subject seemingly allows himself to be run over by a heavy vehicle and then emerges unscathed. (Note the man with the microphone in the first picture, who drums up business and describes the action for observers. Also note the blanket placed under the boy's arm not a consideration persons intent on severely punishing a lawbreaker would be likely to provide.) This a common illusion, variations of which are performed by many magicians and accomplished through a variety of means, with no lasting harm done. That the subject is a small boy who grimaces his way through the stunt is all part of the act, intended to elicit sympathy and extra cash despite his contorted facial expressions, the boy is not seriously hurt.
Urban legend. It’s a carney barker trick. But in iran’s case, everyone finds it perfectly believable.
AH! Another compassionate story from those fun loving radical islamics. Don’t ya just want to give them a hug?
May they all rot in hell!
