BETTER OFF DEAD:

Japan death row 'breeds insanity' (BBC, 9/10/09)

Prisoners on death row in Japan are being driven towards insanity by harsh conditions, according to human rights group Amnesty International.

The group is calling for an immediate moratorium on all further executions and for police interrogation reform. [...]

In Japan, where criminal trials have a 99% conviction rate, the death penalty has wide public support.


Shouldn't they be calling for expedited executions to end the suffering?
