Fourteen Iraqi youths have reportedly been stoned or beaten to death in the last month for dressing "emo." Shiite militias in Baghdad have labeled the teen trend "Satanism," and
leaflets have been distributed targeting specific teens and promising "We are the Brigades of Anger. We warn you, if you do not get back to sanity and the right path, you will be killed." The interior ministry denies there is any connection between the violence and the rise of the trendy style of dressing.
I don't understand why someone would kill over this.
