Navid Afkari didn’t stab someone, they forced him to do a false confession so they could have a reason for executing him since he was part of a peaceful protest against the terrorist regime in Iran!

Navid Afkari was "made an example of" because he protested the Iran Government, and since he was a well-known wrestler, they tortured him to confess to something he did not do ....he never stabbed a security guard there is no proof, a mob of 10,000 people were rushing the guards......long story short, this poor guy was made an example of for protesting the government

I've never known about Bobby Green until 3 minutes ago...
His respect for another humans life even during a big moment in his life speaks volumes.
My beautiful woman is from Iran and she fled that country to have what we all take for granted... Freedom..
Massive respect for Bobby Green for his deep heart
It may be unpopular to truly understand but some people are born in a country where they have ZERO ability to change their government and when some stand up they are killed...
Bobby Green is a lesson in true humanity!
Edit: Oh and massive love to our brothers and sisters in Iran, all my prayers are always with all of you.

The Iranian government has brutally killed a lot of innocent ordinary people who came to street and asked for their initial rights, bread, their salary, and a simple life. Navid was speaking up for the poor protesting people, and one of the government killers attacked him to kill him, he defended himself. he was a wrestler. There is no evidence to show that Hell-attacker was killed by Navid. They labeled Navid and his two brothers as government-agent killers. They always do. They always label protesters with a false accusation of capital crimes, and they torture them, and they take them in front of camera/ TV and force them to confusing to a crime that they have NOT committed. Then they execute or hang them. That is how the oppressive dictator governments been to survive and continue their demon power.

Navid Afkari: They are looking for a neck for their ropes
According to a letter that Navid Afkari was able to publish, a plastic bag was pulled over his head until he almost suffocated. In this way, as well as with psychological torture methods, he was made to confess to a murder which he claims he did not commit. His "confession" was broadcast on September 5, 2020 on Iranian state television, which is also known from other cases of forced "confessions" for its close cooperation with Iranian investigative bodies. He was executed by hanging by the Islamic Republic of Iran on the morning of September 12, 2020, at the age of 27, in Adel-Abad prison in Shiraz.

Unfortunate and sad situation for the Afkari family and Iran, irregardless of whatever may be the real facts. Just perhaps keep in mind that there is an unquestionable monopolization not only of our media, but also the perpetual threading of narratives that allow the U.S. to meddle in other countries' affairs. Through that propaganda comes mind control. The power of which leaves us all collectively grinding our brown-eyes into fake leather recliners being regaled by pop stars and soda pop. Bush junior once ordered us to " ...never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September 11." Exactly which ones are outrageous? Could it be our suspension of beliefs in the same Laws of physics and science that were necessary to erect those towers; yet in their destruction we are now to disavow those exact rules of thought and surrender our petrified third-eye unto a certain law of the land? I'm just asking for a friend. PS How about them Lakers!

Wilhelm Hesse
Wilhelm Hesse:
The best they couldve done to try and save him wouldve been to publicize the incarceration and death sentence before he was executed, ask the Pope, ask Putin, ask Duerte to help ask anyone who isnt an enemy of Iran especially after what happened with the hit on their general. Asking an enemy to intervene only motivated them to actually go and do it.

Navid is not the first person who has been murdered . since this brutal regime was put in power 42 years latterly 100s thousand of being held and torture. raped , their family being prosecuted. .....killed by this regime who has lots of lobbies and money over broad to show its the other way around.
the only person is truly standing against Iran's brutal regime is president Donald Trump

I mean I feel terrible too but did anyone really expect a different outcome, Iran operates the way they do and there are no deviations. The second it was made official he would be executed it was over for that poor man unfortunately, a problem that has plagued the middle east for far too long.

He was not executed! The savage regime killed him under severe and brutal torture. When he was buried, they found that his face was completely destroyed and that part of his body was where he had been flogged.
Only five members of his family were allowed to attend the funeral, and the rest of those present at the funeral were plainclothes agents of the Islamic Republic. Isn't this a crime? Who do not even allow his family members, friends, relatives to attend the funeral ?! What name can be given to this inhuman behavior?

I think what Bobby experienced was the violence and brutality of what happened to Navid, and he was processing that- which is why he could not or did not want to engage another human violently. Because processing the violence Navid experienced, it's infuriating, and sad, and so alarming- and really makes you value life and humans

I think that's what Bobby was going through, was processing the inherent value of human life, and seeing someone be destroyed and killed. I wouldn't want to be punching anybody's faces after processing that either (except for the faces of those who caused Navid to die)

Strangely most of the people who are outraged about Navid’s execution vote for the Democrats who support Iran so much. The same ones who were mad at Trump for killing one of Iran’s Generals who was responsible for killing so many innocent people👌🏼

alex patot:
Navid was killed under torture and they had no choice to announced his dead by saying he was hanged they only showed half of his face to his family and not rest of the body and from what they saw his nose was all smashed up and rest of the body warped and forced to been burred in the middle of the night with the present of special forces........

According to all reports, he was not hanged but was tortured to death. His body was covered with scars and wounds. The champ was inflexible and steadfast to the last, so that they did not manage to execute him. We will not forget you and hold your murderers accountable. Rest in peace
