Shouldn't that read less inhumane?!

a step in the right direction as far as conscience?

Or is it that injecting someone is cheaper?

I am opposed to a government issued death penalty under any circumstance so whether your are shot at or injected, it is all the same: Murder.

This is shocking:

*China executes more people than rest of the world combined

*Tax fraud, embezzlement, robbery & drug offences carry death penalty

*China does not publish official figures on executions

*Some cases based on confessions with trials often taking less than a day
