Video showing the capture of Gaddafi **Graphic** Reply

I was torn about posting this video, it is graphic.  You feel as though you are there.  But I decided it should be shared…. it is your choice to watch.

In the very beginning at about 6 seconds, even though the cell phone camera is moving all over, you can see Gaddafi’s mouth moving…. probably pleading.

Update post publishing:  When I first watched this, I thought he was dead by mid-video.  I watched it a few more times, and he is still alive… pleading as they lift him in the back of the transport.  I did change the title to reflect this is not the video showing him being killed.
