The execution of Mohammed Bijeh
In March of 2005, Iran executed the Mohammed Bijeh, "the desert vampire," BUT they didn't just execute this monster, first they scourged him at the pillar until he collapsed, then allowed family members to spit and hit the ghoul, before finally hanging Bijeh from an industrial crane with a slip knot. (http://www.executedtoday.com/2009/03/16/2005-mohammed-bijeh-the-desert-vampire/)
It can take up to 45 minutes for a person to die from a slip knot hanging, as it DOES NOT break the condemned's neck.
After that ordeal was over, they crucified Bijeh's lifeless body as a warning to others.
Here in the USA, THIS is how child murderers are treated (http://fox4kc.com/2016/05/26/man-who-kidnapped-and-killed-5-year-old-atchison-girl-going-to-prison-for-life/)
Last month (May 26th) Marcas McGowan, of Atchison, KS (outside of Kansas City) pleaded guilty to federal charges of kidnapping and killing a 5-year-old girl (Cady Harris). Marcas McGowan, 32, pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping resulting in death, and one count of discharging a firearm during a crime of violence. In his plea, he admitted that on July 18, 2014, he shot and killed the girl after he kidnapped her and exchanged gunfire with police.
For his troubles, Mr. McGowan will get a lifetime of free food, free room and board and extensive and expensive therapy.
I've never understood our collective sympathy with predators as "tortured souls."
Let's say, for the sake of argument, that Marcas McGowan had a "rough upbringing," perhaps he was physically abused and psychologically damaged. ALL of that is pitiable, BUT NONE of it negates the necessity for Mr. McGowan to be held accountable for his crimes.
YES, I've always preferred the Iranian method. I'm none too fond of our own.
