Jan 16, 2007 Decapitation by Iraq’s official executioner
Death penalty: Always unjust.
Saddam Hussein’s half-brother was decapitated this past Sunday morning, when his executioners failed to set the rope length sufficiently commensurate with his size.
Of course, all execution is brutal, not just this one. This site shows gruesome video and photos of Saddam Hussein’s wounds from his hanging, and this video showing Hussein being hanged is gruesome enough as is.
Hanging is a brutal and inhumane legacy continued from Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime.
