    For the first time in eight years, Saudi Arabia has crucified a man’s body as part of his punishment.

    Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen of Myanmar was executed on Wednesday in Mecca, the Saudi Press Agency reported, although it didn't specify the nature of his execution. His body was subsequently publicly displayed post-mortem on a cross. Most executions in Saudi Arabia are performed by beheading the condemned with a sword.

    lthough Saudi Arabia has the third-highest number of capital punishments per year in the world, according to Amnesty International, crucifixions remain extremely rare. Only China and Iran execute more people per year.
    Jamaleddeen was convicted of breaking into a woman's home, firing a weapon in it and stabbing her to death, according to the Saudi Interior Ministry, which oversees the directorates of Corrections and Court Services. He was also accused of stealing weapons and trying to kill another man, as well as attempting to rape a woman.
    The last time the kingdom crucified a person was in 2010, when a Yemeni man's body was displayed following his execution for having raped and murdered a girl and shot her father dead, Bloomberg noted.


    Nearly 150 people were executed in Saudi Arabia last year, according to Human Rights Watch, most of whom were punished for nonviolent offenses such as drug-related crimes.
    In an April interview with Time Magazine, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the effective power behind the throne of his aging father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, said he would consider reducing death sentences for crimes other than murder to life imprisonment.

    If you kill someone in Texas they'll kill you back. And the line moves fast.

    Nothing I'd like to see more is extensive DNA testing to make certain the right killer gets a needle. But it should be used early and often.

    Usually I would be for a death penalty .
    It is really up to the accused to stand his ground in court ,
    to not being convicted falsely .

    The thing is , that while in prison , people get ideas waiting for the trials ,
    and try to make up strategies and revert any sayings they did to the police before .

    What I would recommend , is to not answer anything vocally , but only answer written down questions
    and not answer much vocally , but answer in written sentences .

    For Europe , I fear , that we will not see it in our livetimes anymore , but the future white minority generations .
    That is why I am undecided at the moment .

    Yes. After "extensive DNA testing" has been performed to greatly lesson the horrible possibility an innocent individual is mistakenly executed, I'd harbor no compunction at all about being the executioner of some of these atrocious monsters.

    Death sentence ordered in Indian court over gang rape of girl (8)

    AN INDIAN COURT has sentenced two men to death for the gang-rape of an eight-year-old girl that sparked angry protests.

    The sentence was one of the first ordered under a new law allowing for fast-track trials and capital punishment for child rapists.

    Crowds chanted “Death to rapists!” after the brutal attack on the child in the central state of Madhya Pradesh two months ago. The victim is still in hospital with critical injuries.

    The suspects picked up the child outside her school in Mandsaur as she waited for her father.

    They took her to a secluded spot where she was raped, had her neck slashed and was left to die. Her life was saved by locals who found her and rushed her to hospital.

    Acourt in Mandsaur passed the sentence on the men, aged 20 and 24.

    Indian April made the rape of children aged up to eight a capital offence following widespread outrage over earlier cases.

    Thelast execution for rape was 14 years ago in Kolkata in eastern India. Dhananjay Chatterjee, a building guard, was hanged for the 1990 rape and murder of an18-year-old.

    Sexual violence is rife in India, with nearly 40,000 rape cases reported in 2016.Activists say this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    India has been the focus of international attention since the 2012 gang-rape and murder of a student on a Delhi bus sparked nationwide protests and highlighted its poor record on sexual violence.

    Saudis recognize women’s right to be beheaded

    Riyadh, “Saudi” Arabia in a major breakthrough for women’s rights in the desert kingdom, Clown Prince Bin Salman (BS) has issued an edict proclaiming that henceforth women will have full and equal rights to be beheaded.

    “There is no place in a modern, air-conditioned country like ours for archaic relics of the medieval past,” BS announced at a press conference beside the gallows in Chop-Chop Square in downtown Riyadh. “For too long we have discriminated against peaceful female dissidents. Are not their heads worth every bit as much as those of their male counterparts? Beginning today, a woman who speaks out against me will have exactly the same right as a man to have her head severed from her body by a tremendous blow to the neck with a gigantic, lovingly sharpened sword.”

    Bin Salman emphasized that in the interests of full and complete equality, he was ordering that female heads be displayed for three days after execution just like male ones, and that henceforth the severed heads of women will not be covered by a niqab: “Forcing women to cover their heads after they have been severed at the neck is an affront to women’s freedom. We don’t ask beheaded male dissidents to hide their faces when we display their bloody severed heads for three days after execution, so why should we force women to undergo this inconvenience?”

    In a related move toward gender equality, Bin Salman ordered the Saudi military to ensure that at least 50% of the cluster bomb munitions being dropped on Yemeni civilians land on women. “Though we have been making every effort to blow the heads off Yemeni women and children as well as men, some reports claim that there is still a ‘gender gap’ with respect to our bomb beheadings,” BS explained. “Today’s orders ensure that we are moving toward full gender equality, as befits a modern and forward-looking nation governed by a bunch of Bedouin Beverly Hillbillies.”


    VETERANS TODAY, Kevin Barrett, September 6, 2018.
    For dissent too!
    Feminists and MSM of course ignore all this.

    Too many innocent people have been killed in the name of justice to justify capital punishment. So, no, I don't agree with it.

    Life in prison with no chance for parole unless they can vindicate themselves during their incarceration.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    I'm not just for execution, I'm for it publicly and even televised live. No needles, hang them or even beheading with no mask. Let the world see them finished and do not consider their rights as they have none.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    ‘Let’s rock’: Tennessee double murderer's last words before electric chair execution


    Moments before electricity went through his body, a Tennessee inmate astonished staff with his final words. Edmund Zagorski, convicted for slaying two people, became the first man to be electrocuted in the state for over a decade. Zagorski, 63, was electrocuted on Thursday night in a Nashville maximum security prison. The US Supreme Court had denied an appeal from the inmate shortly before the execution was set to start.

    “Let’s rock,” the man declared when a warden asked if he had any final words, according to reporters present in the death chamber. Zagorski was said to be smiling while he sat in the wired chair, but his demeanor changed when water from a wet sponge on his freshly shaven head ran down his face. He appeared to try waving with his right hand seconds before jolts of electricity were sent through his body.


    The man’s death sentence was delayed for around three weeks when the inmate changed his mind about the method of execution – the electric chair rather than a lethal injection. Zagorski’s attorney, Kelley Henry, argued that the injection was too painful and his client had to choose the “lesser of two evils.” The inmate had been on death row for more than 34 years after he shot and slit the throats of two men, John Dotson and Jimmy Porter, during a marijuana deal. Relatives of the victims attended the execution.


    A small protest against the death penalty was held outside the facility on the day. The gathering was countered by a few people, one of whom shouted: “I hope he catches on fire,” according to the Tennessean. Zagorski became the second inmate that Tennessee has put to death this year and the first person to die by electric chair in the state since 2007. Only nine states allow the use of the electric chair to carry out a death penalty, but all of them have lethal injection as their primary method. Some 14 other people have been put to death by electrocution since 2000.

    Oh, my goodness!.. How shocking!

    Methods employed to execute those convicted of capital offenses in the USA:

    https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/methods...=8&did=245

    FWIW, I'm against the death penalty if not enough conclusive material evidence, combined with DNA evidence was provided during court proceedings to determine guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt. Otherwise, the penalty handed down should be life at hard labor with no chance for parole. There is always the possibility when some doubt remains that such cases can be retried later and lead to a not guilty verdict instead.

    There are few tragedies more terrible than being sent to prison, let alone executed for a heinous crime a convict knows they're not guilty of committing.
