What were some of the features of Yazids tyrannical regime?

No doubt he was a tyrant, but I cannot find sources in English that state exactly how he oppressed the people.

I have heard that he charged high taxes, and interest. Could you name some other things that happened before he ordered the brutal killing of Imam Al Hussayn

There are many documented practices that clearly indicate the tyranny and corruption of Yazid. These include threatening and killing for political reasons, corruption of religious law, bribery and slander. Please read here for more details:
