I believe the proper term is mostly dead
 
2013-10-22 07:55:51 PM
So what is Iran going to do with him?  Or are they just going to leave us hanging?

Damn. Now I want an icy-cold longneck, too.
 
2013-10-22 08:02:38 PM
Wow. I don't suppose this gives him a lifetime get-out-of-being-hanged-again if he continues smuggling, though

Does he feel like dancing?

I think I saw that Clint Eastwood movie.

/except he was a rancher, not a drug smuggler
 
2013-10-22 08:22:01 PM
So did they decide not to kill him or did he die on his own?
 
2013-10-22 08:25:10 PM
So many choices...

quoted Mostafa Pourmohammadi as saying there is "no need for re-execution" of the 37-year-old

What do you mean "re-execution"? You didn't actually "execute" him the first time, now did you?

he was hanged in the city of Bojnourd

Is he alive alive or a vegetable?

If he is back to normal, lucky guy hit a one-outer and somehow managed to survive a hanging.  Did they cut the rope too soon or is he just a wizard?

So he wasn't [puts on sunglasses]... well hung?

YEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

This was always one of my favorite Ren & Stimpy episodes for some reason. The Lord loves a hangin', that's why he gave us necks.

TEHRAN, Iran - An Iranian news agency says the justice minister has concluded there is "no need" to finish off a convict who survived his hanging.

A Tuesday report by the semi-official ISNA quoted Mostafa Pourmohammadi as saying there is "no need for re-execution" of the 37-year-old convicted of smuggling drugs who only was identified by his first name, Alireza.

Earlier this month, morgue technicians discovered that Alireza was alive a day after he was hanged in the city of Bojnourd, according to the media.

His case prompted debate, with some legal experts arguing he should be hanged again.

Last week Amnesty International urged Iran to spare Alireza.

Drug smuggling is one of a number of crimes that can be punished by capital punishment in Iran.

Thank you.

That's gruesome. It sounds like he's in a coma, or something like that, if he was discovered to be alive by a morgue worker. That would explain why they don't "need" to hang him again.

*shudder*

Here's a better story:

The 37-year-old convicted drug smuggler, named as Alireza M, was found alive in a morgue after being hanged at a jail in the north-eastern city of Bojnord last week.
He had been left to hang for 12 minutes after which a doctor declared him dead, reports said.
But when the prisoner's family went to collect his body from the prison morgue the next day, they found he was still breathing.
The man was then moved to a hospital where he was being kept under armed guard.
His condition is not known although the IRNA news agency reported on Monday that he had fallen into a coma.

You would think that someone "coming back to life" after being pronounced dead would have some religion connotation to it...

"The Cowboys" is my favorite John Wayne movie. For the western haters, watch this one. You will love it.

That's all right. I set up a script to download that page, whatever shows up on it, 25 times a second.  I'll stop it after I wake up from my nap.  G'night all.

Probably permanently brain damaged.  Much like Fark admins who greenlight without RTFAing.
