Stoned to Death for Wearing Skull and Western Inconography

I have just finished reading some articles, while looking for skull related topics, about young Iraqi men who are getting stoned to death for dressing ‘Emo’. They are deemed as such for wearing their hair long,  skinny jeans, fitted clothes with skull iconography and any “strange” things like facial piercings. These youths have been labelled by the Iraqi Interior Ministry as Satanic.

The government have “moral police” to stamp out such behavior. 14 dead youths were killed in the past three weeks of the initial article I read, dated March 2012 , with estimates already ranging between 90 and 100.
