China Still Barbaric But Improving

China's record on the death penalty is abysmal, and 2007 repeated the same old story, although gains are being made there.

Our so called ally, Saudi Arabia was one of just three countries in the world that executed juveniles in 2007. Iran and Yemen were the other two.

The U.S. is fifth in the world in executions, but had the lowest execution rate in 15 years and has recently ceased to execute those who were juveniles when the crime was committed and those found to be mentally retarded.
