Quite correct. This is not about the murderer, state execution is about what society wishes done in its name. It could be argued that the harsher the punishment that the society demands the harsher the society is. The darker the forces the more draconian or widespread the punishment must be. For Saddam to keep the lid on Iraqi society he had to execute thousands a year. Now look how many are killed. Does the US imagine itself to be darker than it actually is as a society?
