Iraq executes 21 nationals drawing international condemnation

If the Iraquis who were executed were found guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt, then they should face whatever sentence is given through the Iraqui court system. But if there were even a glint of a possibility that they were innocent, then I think an alternative means of punishment should take place. As an American, I am one of about 300 million citizens who has that one voice. American states have slowed down in the number of executions it carries out. This means men on death row could be there 10 or more years. Meanwhile the prisons become overpopulated to the point that the parole board elects to release prisioners sooner, or we build more prisons - as opposed to capital punishment being implemented or another means of punishment. Pretty soon it will be the innocent citizens in the prisons being protected from the criminals out on the street because the innocent citizens are outnumbered. The only thing I'd like to add is that if you choose to execute, do so humanely beyond that reasonable doubt.
