The total for the year, so far, is 100. Two Saudi men were beheaded yesterday after being convicted of raping a man. [No that is not a typographical error.] No. I do not make light of the criminal justice system, here, in The Sandbox. I believe that Saudi Arabia could teach the United States a few lessons insofar as how to deal with crime. How many murders were there in the United States in 2008? [I'm sure the statistics are out there somewhere.] How many in Chicago, alone? Justice is swift and efficient in this part of the world - for murder, for rape, for burglary - unlike in the States where criminals have all the rights and languish in jails and prisons for years and years and years at taxpayer expense.
Weasel Zippers had the story first. I "borrowed" it from him.
