Weep for Kim Jong II or Go to Prison

If you think that this video of North Koreans publicly weeping for their fallen dictator that has oppressed them for decades is a little over the top, that’s because it is.  In North Korea, a showing of grief for the death of Kim Jong-Il is not expected, but required.  Forced to demonstrate the extent of their sadness or face persecution, North Koreans respond by almost trying to outdo each other in their public showings of mourning.
