Singapore's Anti-Drug Cruelty

For most of human history sellers of opiates have engaged in a legal and even respected trade. Of course, in our more enlightened times we know that such sellers must be punished. And no country is more eager to punish, and to take the punishment to absurd extremes, than Singapore (though China and Malaysia are among the progressive nations competing for the honor). Today Singapore hanged a 21-year old man who had been convicted of heroin trafficking.

Update: Moscow's mayor endorses the cruelty.
