As gruesome as it is I'm trying to imagine the logistics of this. Getting hit by ONE orange fucking hurts if it is thrown with force. It probably wouldn't have the same bone-shattering potential as a stone of the same size, but one large, well-thrown orange could probably give you a concussion. Several quick, well-aimed shots could probably rattle the brain around enough to cause eventual death from brain swelling and trauma..
Stoning seems like it would be a horrible way to die, and this seems just as terrible but more prolonged.
Why didn't the guy run away? Was he too intimidated to run? Physically incapable of running? Trapped somewhere so he couldn't get away? Did he feel a sense of duty and obligation to stand and take it? Did the killers have a history of bullying other people - to death or otherwise?
Jesus fuck, this truly is horrific.
Now here's my contribution to the black humor in this thread:
