The Axis of Evil: China, Iran, Iraq, Arabia, America, Yemen, N. Korea
Executions in 2011
China: Thousands (exact figures are a state secret)
Saudi Arabia: 82
United States: 43
North Korea: 30
(Data from The Guardian UK)
Only 20 countries still execute people. The U.S. was the only country in the Americas and the only G8 country to execute prisoners. Executions were up dramatically in 2011, due primarily to sharp increases in the Middle East.
2. Ditto regarding Texas, N. Korea might be as bad as China...
North Korea is probably also in the "THOUSANDS"; like China, their own people disappear -- into detention camps. Especially if they don't appear to enthusiastically mourn a dead psycho leader... I can't imagine "living" like that.
Speaking of detention, why the heck are there often "SEE CRIMINAL RECORDS NOW!" ads here?
With people crying --- hopefully they're not about to be killed, but that doesn't say much at all
about us either.
"Let's see who's misfortune we can look up today... anybody I know?" If those people were to be executed I shudder to think how many people would try to watch that too if that were made available in addition to their arrest records
