    Well, Matt, I don’t guess you see a difference between an innocent person getting beheaded and a vicious child killer being executed.

    So in Matt Bors’ mind, journalists are the equivalent of murderers? Sounds like a good ol’ press-hating Republican to me.

    R’s really? Obama calls out Fox by name and you think it is the R’s that “hate”

    -
    Exactly. It’s like equating a pickpocket with a traffic judge just because they both take people’s money.

    Fail comic. The difference is due process and a total lack of barbarism compared to immediately meted out slaughter by people who want to get our attention.

    “The difference is due process and a total lack of barbarism”

    Except that “due process” has been seen failing time and again… and as for “lack of barbarism”, how many “conservative” commentors here say “I hope he suffers, he’s scum”?

    martens misses all her friends: Obviously you noted that Scalia’s number one and two arguments why capital punishment is necessary just got exonerated on iron-clad evidence. Four things are required for tyranny: capital punishment, conscription, censorship, and official prejudice. The only one we don’t have is on the books ready to be used as it has in the past.

    And most of the comments fail to get the real point of the cartoon. It is not about an equivalence of a terrorist act and an state sponsored execution. It is, rather, stating that one execution is as horrible as another. Or perhaps more. The beheading is a swift death (if done right). The lethal injection should be painless, but recent history seems to indicate that it is frequently botched, turning an execution into torture.

    And for all those who say that the criminals deserve to die painfully, you go against moral principles espoused by religious figures and against the idea that we should be better than our worst elements, not just as bad as them. You might think that unimportant, but you must remember that criminal elements almost always justify themselves on the grounds that the system and other people are just as bad as them, so why not do what they do?

    I personally would rather stand on a higher moral ground than a serial killer.

    War is also, in all aspects, barbarism, but profitable to industry and politicians, gee, just like privatized prisons in the U.S.!

    In Jihad, nobody is innocent.
    You are either fighting on the side of god, in which case any and all sins are forgiven, or you are an enemy of god, and every breath you take and every move you make is an offense to god that cannot be tolerated and must be answered with bloodshed.
    Sounds like a Police song, doesn’t it?

    Yes, killing someone while he / she is strapped down and immobilized with drugs.. in some secret basement with the curtains drawn.. is much more civilized.
    As a deterrent, and is that not what it is all about, one is much more effective than the other.
