    Countries with the toughest laws

    According to Amnesty International, there were 2,390 documented executions in the world in 2008. The number of executions was taken from 25 different countries with China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United States making up for 93% of the 2,390. Here’s another interesting fact, out of all the countries in the world, only 59 countries reportedly carry the death penalty as form of punishment but only 25 of those 59 actually used it in 2008. There were 8,864 people in those 59 countries that were condemned to die last year but only about 1/4 of them were actually executed.

    The toughest death penalty laws that governed the world as of last year came from:

    1. China – executed at least 1,718 people last year
    2. Iran – executed 346 people last year
    3. Saudi Arabia - executed at least 102 people last year
    4. United States – executed 37 people last year

    Other countries that didn’t make the death penalty list found themselves in the spotlight for being the toughest countries for concerning other laws. In examining laws, certain countries were found to be the strictest in certain areas. The list is as follows:

    Canada – has the toughest child pornography laws

    Italy - Has the toughest anti-piracy laws

    South Australia – has the toughest anti-bikie (biker gang) laws

    United Kingdom - has the toughest gun-control laws

    Germany – has the toughest internet censorship laws

    Scotland – the toughest anti smoking laws

    China – has the toughest environmental laws

    Africa Continent – has the toughest arms transfers controls laws


    I would add solitary confinement as one of the worst type of punishments not listed in the article:

    Not defending this guy, he deserves a severe punishment. I think this kid has been in solitary confinement since May 2010.

    Manning is being held in solitary confinement for all but an hour every day, and is stripped naked each night and given a suicide-proof smock to wear to bed.

    A discussion on the death penaty and it's application is impossible without detailed numbers on what crimes they were executer for, and how many trials/appeals each prisoner was entitled to, and the overall fairness (objective) of the State Court system in each nation is.

    I've been in almost all those countries/continents. I have to say, Finland is the most law abiding place I've ever seen.

    You have to take in consideration the population of the country when considering the statistics.

    Finland- Drivers who register a 0.05 or above alcohol content are subject to immediate arrest.

    I think this is a neat idea, DUI plates: In 1967, Ohio began to issue special license plates to DUI offenders who are granted limited driving privileges such as work-related driving until a court can rule that they can have full privileges back. However, judges rarely enforced the plates, so in 2004, the plates became mandated by state law to all DUI offenders.[11] Unlike Ohio's standard-issue plates (which as of 2008 have a picture of the Ohio country side), the DUI plates are yellow with red writing with no registration stickers or graphics. They are sometimes known as "party plates."[11] Minnesota has a similar program, where the plates are white with either blue or black text. The plate number is a "W", followed by a letter and four numbers. These plates may be issued to drivers with at least 2 DUIs in a ten-year period.[12] In Minnesota, DUI plates are referred to as "whiskey plates," [13] whiskey being the name of the letter W in the NATO phonetic alphabet.

    I think sex offender's houses should have a special sign (neon light preferably) on their apartment doors, yards, etc. I would love to see that!

    You have a right to know if someone's a sex offender. how about weapons? If people knew what was in my house, they wouldn't drive within line of sight of the house.

    I don't need any of that. IMO, nothing is worthy of death at the hands of another man. It is not our place ever to take a life, under any circumstances. Two wrongs never make a right.

    Until military aggression, capital punishment, and abortion become no longer acceptable, we have not fully evolved as a species. These are primitive, barbaric methods of human behavior all "justified" one way or another by politics and self-righteousness. Only your life is your own. No one else's is yours to take. Ever.

    I would take that bet, because I would bet the VAST majority of supporters would be conservative, and the VAST majority of detractors would be liberal.
