Death by State

Following on from a discussion we've had previously on this site about the death penalty, figures were published today saying that almost 4,000 were executed worldwide last year. This figure comes from Amnesty International who are worried that the true figure could be even higher than that. I am firmly opposed to the death penalty and I think it should be noted that the countries in which it tends to be used the most are those with very suspect human rights records.
