We are turning in circles here.

The death penalty is a relict of the dark medival times.

If "revenge" is an evil, then it's a necessary evil. Society can feel safer knowing that the criminal will not come back again. This can also serve as a dire warning to would-be offenders. We cannot reign in all dare-devils, but we can educate them to think before they act. And if they still don't think, they should know what's in store for them.

Comparable statistics among countries with death penalty and countries without will proof you wrong. West European nations - who had abolished the death penalty - are safer than most known countries who still chose to murder their own citizen.

Mass Murderers

The mass murderers get away with their crimes.Take Dubya, Bliar, Dickhead, Obomber, Hitlery.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Personally, I think it has to do with a country's modernization and developmental level. West Europe is advanced in many areas of human civilization and is able to afford the people with a high living standard, which in turn become disincentives for citizens who otherwise would be forced to turn to commit crimes.

Therefore, abolishing capital punishment cannot be written in iron. As countries advance, the situation could change to reflect the pragmatism and aspirations of their peoples.

I't a good read for those really interested..."


Interesting read. Some simplified contrast and comparison:

1.America being the most powerful country has the highest number and rate of imprisonment.
2.1/10 of Americans are black, nearly 1/2 of the prisoners are black, whereas Asian prisoners percentage is much lower than Asian's share of the population.
3. Imprisonment rate: 1/100 in America   vs   1/2000 in Japan

In addition to the above, East Asians seem to top in life span and IQ data.  The west makes up 1/10 of the world population and is consuming >1/2 of world's annual natural resources.   Asians make up 3/5 of the world population, just Indian and Chinese alone make up 2/5. how westernized do we Chinese want to be or are allowed to be?

Chinese has an old saying, 格物致知 明德致善.

Is the west really more advanced than the east in terms of civilization?   If civilization is to be measured by technology advancement and resources consumption rate, probably yes.
