Apart from China, Iran is on the front line when it comes to capital punishment. The country has garnered Western media attention and criticism for carrying out executions even of minors. Hangings are frequently held in public. 16-year-old Atefeh Rajabi Sahaaleh was hanged from a crane in Neka, Iran, on August 15, 2004, on charges of adultery and “crimes against chastity. The judge in her case personally applied the noose around her neck.

The History of Austin: Music Paradise Once Controlled by Gangsters

  • The Live Music Capital of the World wasn't always this way, it once also had a thriving crime scene.

Many people call Austin the “Live Music Capital of the World.” A cosmopolitan city of politicians, enlightened college students, and free-thinking citizens, the city sits like an oasis in the heart of the otherwise conservative preferences of the state of Texas. Beloved for its creative edge, it might surprise you to know that this thriving town wasn’t always this way.

Ruby Ridge: The eleven-day Siege

  • The Weavers regarded themselves as white “separatists,” not supremacists.
  • The family had guns, plenty of guns, as they prepared with their children for the apocalypse.

It is no other than the eleven-day standoff incident which occurred between United States Marshals Service (USMS), the Hostage Rescue team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI HRT) and Randy Weaver, his family and a close friend, Kevin Harris. This incident led to death of a Deputy U.S. Marshal and two of Randy Weaver’s family members.
