Disturbing reports have surfaced according to which an investigative journalist has been lit on fire and burned to death by police officers.

Uttar Pradesh, India — The incident began when Jagendra Singh criticized a corrupt politician.

The politician is a current cabinet member for the Indian legislative assembly.

Singh did a report documenting how the politician was guilty of land theft and also was participating in illegal mining.

Just days later police showed up to his home with petrol oil, according to reports.

They saturated his body with the petrol oil, ignited it, then left him to burn to death, according to reports.

Miraculously, some of the flames were able to be put out, but it was already too late.

Singh was pronounced dead some time after arriving at the hospital.

While dying in the hospital, he was able to speak out one last time, and he confirmed that the police did it to him.

Singh was able to confirm moments before his death that the police did it to him, testifying in his dying breaths.

The burns covered more than half of his entire body, leaving his flesh peeled off all over.

He ran an independent online news reporting service that published reports on political corruption every day.

A police spokesman initially tried to convince the media that Singh “burned himself.”

“There was a case against Jagendra Singh. We tried to arrest him but he committed suicide,” he said.

But Singh’s family states that it was the police themselves who set him on fire.

They “barged into the room and poured petrol on him and set him ablaze,” said his wife.

She confirmed that similar attempts to take Singh’s life had occurred in the past when he wrote about how a politician was involved in gang-raping a female worker.

They “barged into our house and questioned my father about the posts. They started beating him up,” said Singh’s son. “They poured petrol over him and set him on fire.”

The politician, Ram Murti Verma, and evidently about four police officers, have now been charged with the death:

Verma himself is accused of ordering the attack.

This scandal and murder has outraged people in India. Although we typically report on cases of police abuse in the United States, it is instructive to point out that police brutality is a global epidemic.

All around the world, police forces are essentially foot soldiers for politicians, enforcers for whatever laws politicians pass from one day to the next.

This is because police belief that it’s somehow honorable “enforce the law” — because they have such low IQs, they are unable to grasp the distinction between legality and morality.

Politicians and their corruption would be powerless if were not for police willingly choosing to protect them and enforce their reign for a paycheck.

Amnesty International has proceeded to request an investigation into the invents surrounding Singh’s gruesome death.

Warning: the video you are about to watch shows the final moments of Singh’s life — it is extremely graphic, discretion is advised.
