Yes the Electric chair they were seated in had a wardrobe malfunction lol and had an obvious defect when used in conjunction with water. The Bir Hassan Police are now calling the manufacturer to discuss warranty issues.....

They’ve got to explain how electricity reaches the cells when there’s a power outage. They threw water at the 2 inmates whilst an evil Shia Hizbala or Amal member was holding the wires .
They’ve done it before and they’ll do it again. Don’t count on the military court to jail the culprits.

In the absence of law the syrian system will run unabated. Those of us old enough to remember the heinous Syrian regime in Lebanon post 77 recall the many who went missing after they were held in the Bolivage or Anjar. Fast forward to January 2019 Assad regime tortured, electrocuted and raped Palestinian detainees. For over 40 years now Syria has dominated lebanon and has left its imprint on the security apparatus in Lebanon and still does. When is this all going to change? when enough Lebanese stand up and throw them into the gutters of history.

YaskY, what you wrote gave me the chills. We all know by now that the Ba’ath’s imagination is limitless when it comes to torture. I’ve seen plenty of heartbreaking videos on YouTube involving in shabbi7as.

People forget quick SOS what the Syrian regime has done and in many cases such as in the current government form keep Lebanon under Bashars hegemony. They have consistently infiltrated every organisation within the security apparatus in Lebanon which has basically become an arm of Syria's heinous regime of torture and terror. This about it for over 40 years they have influenced every move in Lebanon to the point that the president serves them directly what does that tell you about the allegiance of the members of the government and our non existent legal system? A indoctrination that is as old as at least 40% of our population so should we be surprised when a moped riding brain washed fool throws a bomb out or shoots someone openly in the street for the sake of his God?
