    In Saudi Arabia you can be beheaded for rape, murder and drug trafficking. 

    102 people were beheaded in 2008 and 35 have been beheaded this year.

  • I personally think we should be tougher and I am for the death penalty for child molesters and rapists. However, I do not think that "statuatory rape" should count when it is between young people...ex an 18 yr old boy has sex with his 16 yr old girlfriend.

    The beheading and crucifying creep me out though. It gives me concerns about the Muslim population growing here in the US. I am especially concerned since there are already some enclaves of the ultra factions.

    I think it is things like this that have made Australia say "no thank you" to Muslims and basically tell them to integrate fully or leave.

  • At least they are getting rid of the sick people in their country. Maybe we should be more like that to make offenders think twice or those who are thinking about it think twice before acting on it.

  • Do you think Muslims would want to behead someone here in America?

  • They also sometimes stone to death a woman that GETS RAPED! I don't think looking towards the middle east for criminal and social justice is the way I'm leaning

  • I wish we would behead child molesters and murderers in the States.

    That's my opinion!

  • while i disagree with their laws regarding women and crime i do agree with what they do to child molesters. I get very tired of hearing about the poor molester who was molested him/herself as a child. How can someone who went thru that hell themselves turn around and hurt a child? makes no sense. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

  • I agree with Bearsjen. Once a person is grown, no matter what they went through as a child, they still make a choice to repeat the behavior or not.

  • what about those who commit rape do you feel they deserve the same punishment??

  • When it comes to child molestation or rape Idon't think I could go with beheading but (if it is proven without a doubt) a bullet placed in the right spot to the head would do.
