ISIS sharia law enforcers in Raqqa

It's time. I have been avoiding watching in-depth videos of ISIS because I didn't want to see images of headless bodies and psychopaths spouting off non-sense. But I finally watched the 5-part Vice series on ISIS in their capital city of Raqqa in Syria. The third episode, below, is the most benign. There is no violence until the 8:50 mark, when they show a crucified body (be warned). This episode follows the morality police and ends with interviews of prisoners. It's worth a watch as you get to see what daily life is like in the city and the protagonist/antagonist is an odd figure.
