Saddam execution December 30, 2006Posted by Amanda in Uncategorized.
It doesn’t matter who someone is or what they have done, I don’t think it is right that a person is put to death.
I am sitting here having just heard that Saddam Hussein has been executed in Iraq. He committed appalling acts that lead to the deaths of thousands but I still can’t agree that he should have been killed.
Let him rot in a jail cell until he is an old man, forgotten about by most of the world. Let that be torture enough.
The state puts itself in the same league as a murderer by committing the same act.
Executions may give some sort of feeling of revenge to victims but the state should be bigger than that and not condone acts that ultimately have no benefit to society.
