Death Cases:

(1) In Georgia the availability of life without parole is perceived as the reason for the decline of death sentences.

(2) Rochester, New York has had a spike in murders.

(3) Whether the drugs which are administered to kill convicts hide the pain of the person as his heart seizes has become one of the latest attacks on the death penalty.

(4) In China it just doesn't pay to be a corrupt government official anymore:
"In the face of irrefutable evidence, he indulged in sophistry in every possible way and refused to admit guilt," Xinhua News Agency quoted the court as saying. "His attitude was disgusting and he was severely punished in accordance with the law."
