The World's Top Executioners - By Joshua E. Keating | Foreign Policy
This week's execution of Troy Davis has provoked an international outcry and renewed debate in the United States over the death penalty. With the fifth-most executions per year of any country, America finds itself on a list with some of the world's worst human rights abusers.
Foreign Policy, an American foreign policy media, selected the nations with the most executions done : China, Iran, and North Korea.
North Korea is on the 3rd with approximately 60 executions done.
However, this was only done with official records, but considering all the human rights abuse and secret abusing that go on in North Korea, North Korea practically and easily tops the list, I believe.
North Korea, where dictatorship has been passed down to the third generation, has been proven to be the land of human rights abuse by the testimonies of the defectors. Political prisons inside are full of violence and public executions, and the agents that look over these facilities rape, torture, and abuse the prisoners as if they were nothing.
North Korean citizens' rights and lives are nothing more than a piece of trash on the street.
Although North Korea may be the third on the official list, they sure are qualified to be the first unofficially.
