how frightened they are
hang for 'an attack on god'
shoot to mutilate
n.b. These angry men of the theocracy have no answers to the questions being asked of them, except their inhumane treatment of the protesters, which might qualify it as godly, possibly, as gods aren’t human.
Every bullet fired into the bodies of women, every execution of a protesting man will only fire up the spirit of protest.
Their end is nigh.
