    Thats pretty tame for Somalia. Hell, if it brings some order to chaos, why not?

    That really peeves me off, at the current rate in this country it won't be long before we are ruled by "Sarias Law".

    Its only shocking because it is seen as shocking over here. Its another part of the world mate. Ideals, beliefs and ways of thinking vary.

    Exactly. Somalia's been lawless and war-torn since 1993, its about time *some* kind of authority stabilised the situation.

    To be honest if somebody killed my Dad I wouldn't mind being given the option to stab the whotsit rather than the guy going to jail for a few years and then being let out on parol for good behaviour etc.

    Somalia has had no recognised official government since the early nineties, and is currently split between the warlords. What do you expect? :o

    But, how would you feel, knowing that you have taken the life of someone?

    Fine, he shouldn't have killed my Dad, I'm not saying its something I would relish doing myself but I'm sure under "Sarias Law" I could get somebody else to do it if I didn't want to.

    I'm not sure that locking somebody in prison for the life is a particulary "humane" punishment!

    I would probably feel pretty good too :p

    I think it would grow on me though, that I was capable of killing another human. I hope I am never in that position.

    It kinda sad and pathetic and this type of justice should not be tollerated in any country in any part of the world :(

    If you are willing to kill because he killed your dad, then your just as guilty as being able to take someones life as he is. You are no better than he is, other than he did it and you just satisfy yourself in your mind knowing you posess the ability to do it.
    I could think of MUCH better punishements than death, believe me, given the choice he would live, but it would be like hell.

    I'm sorry but I don't think it's anywhere near that black and white.

    Is it any different to countries with legal death sentence (US) it ends the same, just the method is different. As long as the person is guilty, and not kangaroo court (but religious courts are a joke) I don't see the problem, if you believe in death sentence. My own is that death penalty should only be for the very worst crimes- serial killer/mutalators, serial paedophile, and boy bands :p etc
