Death penalty?

Japan has the death penalty? I wonder just how "swift and certain" it will be. In Tejas it takes us an average of nine years, but a recent execution took place after almost 25 years.

It certainly sounds like the court took the heinousness of the crime into consideration. At least one of the murders sounds like a kidnap/murder, which should carry the death penalty every where.

You live and learn.

Huh? so this is what "sane" people do then....

Hanging!

Hanging? ...Will they make a Japanese lantern out him so his backlit Yakuza tattoos will brighten up the prison recreation room?

I fully expected him to be offered a televised Sepuku, or maybe have him filleted with a sushi knife on Iron Chef TV. Hangings are so boring! They could even send him to Iraq and cut him loose on a Baghdad street with a ** Screw the Sunni's and Shiite's, God Bless George Bush ** sign around his neck.

I think at one time we in America during the 1960's pondered dumping these types out on 110th street in Harlem with a Lester Maddox for President sign on them and let nature take it's course
