Saddam's execution cited in boy's accidental hanging death

Okay people, really, do we have to put a "Warning: do not attempt this at home" image over a video of a fucking execution? My God, you'd think that since the outcome of an execution is always DEATH, people would conclude that recreating the action at home would most probably have a similiar outcome.

Sergio Pelico, 10, was found dead Sunday in his apartment bedroom in the Houston-area city of Webster, said Webster police Lt. Tom Claunch. Pelico's mother told police he had previously watched a news report on Saddam's death.

Let's take a poll. How many of you watched the Saddam hanging video and thought, "Hey, I should try that."?

"It appears to be accidental," Claunch said. "Our gut reaction is that he was experimenting."

His experiment was a success.

He said Sergio had watched TV news with another uncle on Saturday and asked the uncle about Saddam's death. "His uncle told him it was because Saddam was real bad," Gustavo said. "He (Sergio) said, 'OK.' And that was it."

Look, I know this is touchy because the boy was young but you have to wonder about our parenting skills as a society when our children are mimicking Iraqi executions. Perhaps when we inform our kids of what happened to Saddam and why, we should add that it's not a good idea to do it yourself. Either that or take all the rope out of the house.

Or we shouldn't worry too much - after all, this has got to have cleaned up the gene pool a little.

If you're dumb enough to do that, then you're too dumb to breed.

I guess that's 1 little boy who just didn't leave the room when the newsman said so.
