He admitted killing her, and now he's dead and we are rid of him. Good.

You think that is swift? Well, for the U.S. it is.

Beijing has started using Death Vans so they can be executed pretty quickly. Yuan Baojing was put to death I think in March (Beijing's wealthiest Billionaire) 15 minutes after the sentencing.

The story in our paper went something like this: The sentence was read, he was hauled into a van, driven to a funeral home a couple of miles from the city, shoved into one of the police "death vans", given lethal injection (this all within 15 minutes of the sentencing) and cremated.

3 hours after the sentence was read, his ashes were handed to his wife with a bill for $2,500.

That is pretty swift. Though kind of eerie.

Why do they kill people
who killed people
to show people
that killing people is wrong?


I know many in here are 150% in favour of the death penalty, so no need to discuss this post.
I just wanted to make my point again.

But they're not trying to show that it's wrong. It's a punishment and a deterrent. Whether it works as one is a whole different topic.

And we who do not agree are to remain silent!

Who said that? Certainly not me. I just said I wouldn't be discussing the "merits" of the death penalty for the 528th time. That's all.

Good riddance. He knew he deserved the dirt nap and he got it.

They should all be this swift and look at the money we would save.
