  •  America's Image is Tarnished by the Death Penalty (1+ / 0-)

    While even the most liberal democratic countries have people who support the death penalty, most of us in those countries think less of America for having the Death Penalty.

    Personally, I'm always shocked when I remember that America has the Death Penalty. Hello, it's 2009!

    Look at the company America is keeping: China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan!

    Most executions carried out in 2007 (from Wikipedia):

    China: 470+ (other sources est. 5,000)
    Iran : 317+
    Saudi Arabia: 143+
    Pakistan: 135+
    USA: 42
