North Koreans who didn't cry for Kim Jong-il sent to labour camps

When North Korea's fearless leader Kim Jong-il passed away the country mourned with great, orchestrated public displays of tears. But for those few who could not make the tears pour out, it looks like the labour camps are their next stop. Disturbing reports out of the impenetrable kingdom are saying that citizens who did not shed tears or had the guff to avoid the public mourning sessions altogether, are being shipped of to labour camps for six months. And if they happen to say a bad word about successor Kim Jong-um, they are being shipped off to the camps as well.

 Newspaper Daily NK claims a source has told them that 'criticism sessions' have now finished and tough sentences are being given out. The source is quoted as saying, "The authorities are handing down at least six months in a labour-training camp to anybody who didn’t participate in the organized gatherings during the mourning period, or who did participate but didn’t cry and didn't seem genuine. Every day from 7am until 7pm they have vehicles for broadcast propaganda parked on busy roads full of people going to and from work, noisily working to proclaim Kim Jong-un’s greatness."

It's reassuring to think that this  country with nuclear weapons is in the hands of such enlightened leadership. Hail to the king!
