Why did I play this?

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2011-05-04

holy fuck, I usually waver back and forth on the death penalty but whoever did this should fucking die

Cena_mark - 2011-05-04

See you liberal pussies even feel the need every now and then to see justice. Shit I've even debated with liberal weenies who think we shouldn't have killed Bin Laden.
I'm glad you're starting to see the light.

The only thing Osama thought was worse than death was being captured alive. Shooting him was tantamount to throwing him in the martyr's briar patch.

Being against executions/death penalties doesn't *have* to be motivated by humanistic sympathies or "liberal weakness." You can't suffer when you're dead, after all.

baleen - 2011-05-04

Cena, you've never "debated" anything. hahaha

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2011-05-05

CG bootcamp must be like summer camp for kids given your posting frequently.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2011-05-10

Actually I'm more the exception when it comes to both people here and in liberal circles in general when it comes to the desire to see a death penalty instated.

I go back and forth on the issue, but ultimately I know that it doesn't have much of an impact on our society for a number of reasons. It's late so I'll just say that it's complicated, the system could definitely use some tweaking and I don't think that anyone wanting there to be no death penalty should be seen as weak. They are standing by their ethics and that is admirable.

MacGyver Style Bomb - 2011-05-04

Apparently the setup was that the victim owed his attackers some money, one of them decided to steal a bicycle owned by the victim's father as compensation, the victim told the police, and this was revenge.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2011-05-04

a video game, to be exact

wtf japan - 2011-05-04

Sounds like this kid learned a valuable lesson about debt and snitching. Maybe he won't grow up and get killed by a loan shark. You know what they say: once burned...

Zaku-sensei - 2011-05-04

5 for evil. but there is no way I'm ever going to press play on this one. I want to be able to sleep at night.

White Trash Party - 2011-05-04

Horrible. I made it two minutes in until I couldn't take the screams anymore.

cognitivedissonance - 2011-05-04

I was set on fire by bullies. No joke. It was my hair, specifically.

Samisyosam - 2011-05-04

I think this video would be much more powerful without the picture of the kid. Not that I have a personal bias against blue-eyed blondes, the stereotype of the white race's crowning arian achievement. It's just so easy for anyone to look at it and compare him to a starving child in africa, covered in flies, and say he's so much better off and nobody should pity him. It's a poor way to think, but I can't deny that my jaded imagination sees that argument happening between any number of people in a youtube comment section. But how can anyone think like that? The screaming of the kid is enough to make me feel truly depressed. He will probably bear visible marks from this all over his face for the rest of his life.

I wonder what happens to those who don't survive adolescence. He can't be the only one. There must have been others who have suffered worse. What does it take for them to look at life at such a young age and see that there's something worth living for? For every mutilated child that survives, mentally and physically scarred, how many others fall into a depth of loathing that they will never rise from? How many fail to reach adulthood? Imagine those who have never come to grips with the horror that stole their lives away from them. They linger on, and forever feel the pain of that moment. They can't explain it. They don't understand it. Many of them just don't feel at all...

So what's our excuse? What do the rest of us really have to complain about? Old exes who did us wrong? Overdue mortgage payments? Some business deals that stabbed us in the back?

We can all walk away from those. This boy, on the other hand, won't just walk away from it. He'll try, but he won't. So what can he have to look forward to? If he finds anything, it'll be more important that anything we have to live for.

Yeah seriously jesus look at that wall of text

TheQuakeSoldier - 2011-05-04

this is an example of something you should've wrote out and then deleted to save yourself the embarrassment

Ghoul - 2011-05-04

I'd prefer to starving over looking like a grilled hot dog.

kennydra - 2011-05-04

5 stars for you because no way in fuck am I clicking play on this.

Adham Nu'man - 2011-05-04

Are you suffering from PTSD after watching the video? If so, I perfectly understand.

StanleyPain - 2011-05-04

Actually, the burns were only on his body and his face and head are normal. From what I've read, the burns on his body have healed considerably and many aren't even scarring, so he's very lucky in that regard; I've seen the pictures of his burned body.

bawbag - 2011-05-04

Oh fuck, that's just... fucking fuck I have no words to describe that.

The Mothership - 2014-10-03

Nor should any of us.

al k duh - 2011-05-04

if someone did this to me, and i lived, i would not rest until they were dead. fuck the law.

paranex - 2011-05-04


Hey, what do you know? No visible marks from this for the rest of his life! Looks like he can go back to the same spiritually-empty life the rest of us have!

TheQuakeSoldier - 2011-05-04

because mental trauma doesn't have a lasting impact

themilkshark - 2011-05-04

Yeah, this kid is fucked for life, his brain is ruined.

Buggerman - 2011-05-04

No visible marks on his face you mean. I also like how he credits prayer for his slow, painful recovery. I wonder if prayer caused him to be lit on fire in the first place.

godot - 2011-05-04

Evidently the victim was doused with alcohol, which burns at a lower temperature than hydrocarbon fuels (there are bar tricks/science experiments with high-proof rum to demonstrate this). The resultant 2nd degree burns, on the other hand, are more painful than 3rd degree burns would be.

Xenocide - 2011-05-04


Seriously, grow the hell up.

chumbucket - 2011-05-04

Mother trying to keep it together...jesus.

simon666 - 2011-05-04

Wont be watching this. The title and description are enough for me to see that it's evil.

Enjoy - 2011-05-04


spiteful crow - 2011-05-04

I don't blame you guys. I kind of hate myself for stumbling onto this and submitting it, now.

Once was more than enough for me.

charmlessman - 2011-05-04

This makes me feel a bit better about what I just heard.

Buggerman - 2011-05-04

Yikes. It must be taxing being a 911 phone dispatcher sometimes. One can only imagine the horror and chaos going on but having to calm and communicate with hysterical people must take tons of patience.

Adham Nu'man - 2011-05-04

I worked as a 911 dispatcher of sorts for a couple of years. Many of the new hires would quit within three months because it made them physically sick, the others just became desensitized. I belonged to the latter category.
Mind you, the vast majority of calls are absolute nonsense and nowhere near as horrifying as this, but simply the sheer volume of calls handled by hysterical people either makes you sick or indifferent.

Robin Kestrel - 2011-05-04

This particular 911 guy sounds like a useless asshole.

Ghoul - 2011-05-04

Agent Gibbs, age 10.

spikestoyiu - 2011-05-04

Builds character.

Kid was not having fun.
