Amnesty International is urging Iran – a country known for its unemcumbered use of the death penalty- to halt the execution of two men (not in the image above) convicted for the third time of consuming alcohol. The men already have received 80 lashes for two previous convictions.

Article 179 of Iran’s “exotic” Penal Code provides for a mandatory death sentence following a third conviction for drinking alcohol.

What’s next? Life imprisonment for picking your nose in public? Forced labor for speeding? Decapitation for sorcery? Oh, I see …
