In China, however, one has to ask: What incentive is mine for obeying the laws, for working hard and for being honest? Those with money and connections get ahead of the honest and hard-working individuals, and they can literally walk over people they killed.


.

I am sure you know what "Tang" is, they were quite popular until CCP took over.

Therefore, you dont want to see democracy in China.

Three Saudis beheaded for murder

30 July 2011.


Three Saudis were beheaded on Saturday in the western city of Taef after being convicted of killing fellow citizens in two separate incidents, state news agency SPA reported.


Mahfoudh bin Ali al-Kenani was beheaded by the sword for stabbing to death Ali Saeed al-Khazmari because of a feud between them, SPA said.


Meanwhile, two brothers, Mohammed and Saud al-Jaeed were also executed for shooting dead fellow citizen Hilal bin Sayel al-Harthi, SPA said in another statement.


Saturday's executions bring to 37 the number of people beheaded in Saudi Arabia this year, according to an AFP tally based on official and human rights group reports.


On June 10, London-based watchdog Amnesty International called on Saudi Arabia to stop applying the death penalty, saying there had been a significant rise in the number of executions in the previous six weeks.


It said 15 people were executed in May alone.


In 2009, the number of executions reached 67, compared to 102 in 2008.


Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law.

Majority of Britons want death penalty restored

7 August 2011.


Majority of Britons want death penalty restored:    poll.


Majority of Britons back the restoration of the death penalty, according to a survey out Sunday, as a petition looks likely to force lawmakers to debate the issue.


In a Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday newspaper, 53 percent said they wanted capital punishment back, with 34 percent opposed.


While 63 percent of men back the move, only 44 percent of women are in favour.


Survation interviewed 1,000 people on Friday and Saturday.


When asked which method should be used, 66 percent opted for lethal injection, with 12 percent calling for hanging, five percent for the electric chair and four percent for a firing squad.


Mass murder, child murder, terrorism and war crimes were deemed the main offences deserving the death penalty.


Britain's last hangings were in 1964 and capital punishment was abolished for murder in 1969.


Members of parliament last debated the issue in 1998, but it has come to the fore again after the government launched its e-petitions website, where petitions gathering 100,000 signatures could be debated in the lower House of Commons.


More than 40 of the first 200 petitions called for the death penalty.


Damian Lyons Lowe, from Survation, said: "These results clearly show that while it is an emotive and divisive issue with differences along gender and party lines, the public clearly remains in favour of capital punishment for serious crime."

Nah, I am not a devil's advocate. I am a pro-lifer.

Think this way: You are dying from some painful cancer. Does society, the law or your physician help you finish your life so that your su ...
