Chief Executioner Officers: Mapping The Dealth Penalty World

ISIS, it appears, does not have a monopoly on 'executions'. As Amnesty notes, while there were no executions reported in Europe and Central Asia last year, executions were recorded in 22 countries during 2013, and increased 15% over 2012 (excluding the thousands of people executed in China that go unreported). Common to almost all executing countries was again the justification of the use of death penalty as an alleged deterrent against crime; but, as Amnesty believes, this position is becoming increasingly untenable and discredited.

 

 

For once USA is 'happy' not be #1 (though 5th in the world, above Somalia and Sudan, still seems high).
