Adultery and a Little Booze – It’ll Cost Ya

Tell me you don’t want to see this happen to Congress…

His face covered by a balaclava, an official brandishing a cane repeatedly lashes the back of a man found guilty of breaking Iran’s morality laws. Two police officers hold the legs of 25-year-old Saeed Ghanbari and another his arms to ensure there is no escape from the punishment of 80 lashes handed down by a religious court.

Traffic was brought to a halt in Qazvin, 90 miles west of the capital Tehran, as more than 1,000 men gathered behind barricades to watch the public flogging.

A four foot long metal bench was taken from a police van and the convicted man was made to lie on it on his stomach, his fawn checked shirt pulled-up to his shoulders to expose his back and waist.

One police officer held his hands together beneath the bench, two others gripped his legs to ensure there was little movement.

Two police officers stood-by, their faces covered with balaclavas – each to administer 40 lashes.

  1. 2007… 80 lashes for alcohol abuse and adultery… I guess they need to up the ante, since it appears that public flogging STILL has little deterrent effect…

  2. You know those cats better wear masks – because if they EVER get the wrong guy (you know, like in Texas) it would be ON.

    80 lashes…that shit could kill you – especially with my man on the right…foot off the ground, back arched, power follow through…looking like Boris Becker.

    How would you like to be the guy holding his hands…face to face, no mask. Hot stinky breath and lots of tears.

  3. That’s what I don’t get, though… everyone watching has GOT to feel the pain somehow… and yet, the “crimes” continue. Seems like they might want to rethink the whole thing.

    That guy holding his hands has the worst job of all, no doubt. And you’re right, “Boris” is getting a good windup going… he must be a religious authority…
