This deserves a good bump for the Troy Davis execution. And for the United States status for their death penalty rate, check this article here.

From the article

"Death penalty: Top 5 countries to execute the most people
According to Amnesty International’s annual Death Sentences and Executions report, at least 527 people were executed in 23 countries in 2010, plus thousands in China. The number of people executed worldwide since 2007 is more than 2,500. Here are the five countries registering the most executions since 2007"

I hope someday that all states banned this barbaric system but Texas and quite few Southern states will probably keep the current capital punishment system in place.

And I think to myself

What a cruel world.
