1. What I find most disturbing...

Is that the US does more executions then North Korea.

Aren't we supposed to be better then that country? Seriously. I thought they were supposed to be evil to the core?

Given some of the stories to come out of the country, I'd have expected NK to be a LOT higher in that list.

3. I support it too...

But even I can admit that some are a bit quick to bring up 'kill em' as the punishment for a crime.

7. I think those absolute numbers. Per capita or as percentage of overall population would

provide a better analysis. Absolutes are useful as well.
