A few hundred years is not a long time in the evolution of the planet. Western cultures use to nail people to crosses, burn people at the stake and they still torture them in some parts today. Yeah, stoning is still a bit backwards when corporal punishment has been enforced with better tools available for the job, at least they did make sure the job was finished with a gun, hopefully it sets a precedent. There are a lot of dumbass traditions and different cultural values around the world. At least the people killed there did know the rules, not like some ignorant or unaware travellers.
