I have just heard the most revolting tale imaginable. It's about a guy in South Africa, Mark Scott-Crossley, who attacked one of his farmhands with a machete, seriously injuring him. He then tied up the wounded man and threw him into an enclosure filled with lions. The poor soul was torn to pieces and eaten by the wild animals.

And what crime did this poor victim commit, you may ask, that was deserving of such a brutal punishment? Well, supposedly it was because he ran a personal errand while on the clock. But his REAL offense, however, was that he was.... Black.

What is this world coming to, killing a man solely because of the color of his skin? What kind of narrow-minded ignorant bigot would carry out such a heinous, unprovoked crime? Crossley has been sentenced to life in prison, but he's getting off easy. If it had been up to me I would have sentenced him to same punishment he inflicted on the poor black man.

Now if the guy had been a Shiite, well, then Crossley would have deserved a medal.
