It really says something
It really says something about this Iraqi government, how they treat the condemned.

Well, sure. But I think the fact that they kill them is rather worse than the fact that some of the hangmen taunt them first.

There's no right way to commit judicial murder.

I tend to agree

Capital punishment doesn't deter crime. In fact, it might actually contribute to violent crime by officially sanctioning deliberate killing under certain circumstances.

Still, given the fact of capital punishment, Saddam's execution seems to have been more in the line of a lynching than a state-run execution.
