*As we have started to see all over the news lately, the Iraqi moral police are hunting and killing teenagers that they consider emo. Depending on what report you read the numbers are already upwards of 100 but it is feared the real figures are much higher.
The motivation is a little sketchy as depending on the report you read it’s either that emo kids are deemed devil worshippers or gay.
"First they throw concrete blocks at the boy's arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead by then, they start all over again," one person who managed to escape told the daily.”
Just look up the stories on this because they are disturbing to the extreme. I know we shouldn’t be surprised but we should all be outraged. If we don’t encourage discussion around world events like this, things will never change. If everyone out there writes about this on their own blogs and sites the message will get out there to our nations leaders that we the people don’t accept this. *
We need to really understand how lucky we are living in a relatively accepting country. Imagine if you were killed just for the police not liking your hairstyle or your pierced lip.
I have included a couple of links below to articles, but if you have a site or even on FB, share these stories and get the word out there about these events.
