Costa Rica Quake

A powerful earthquake hit Costa Rica in Central America, killing at least three and injuring many others.

The quake measure 6.1 on the Richter scale, meaning it was a very strong earthquake capable of being extremely destructive.

Tremors from the quake triggered a huge landslide northwest of the capital city, San Jose.

It cut off electricity in parts of San Jose and officials said there was lots of damage to houses and roads.

Thats nice to know but this forum debate is about how efficent the death penalty is. UAE executes more people than the United States, yet they have a higher murder rate.  China executes more people than the United States, yet they have a lower murder rate.  I don't think the death penalty is effective in dealing with crimes. Not only do the ends not justify the means, the means do not even accomplish the ends. To AlphaT- it seems that the examples you gave honestly deal with the mind set of the people in these areas. Certinally the effectiveness of any method of punishment deals with the morals, and culture of how people live. If murder was a punishment for the ancient Norse it wouldn't have mattered unless they were able to find "honor" in it. Since dying a worthy warrior was the only way to be accepted into Valhalla.  Opposed to a group of people that would think death is something to be feared. That it was the end to any existence as they know it. Wouldnt their beliefs determine the effectiveness of the punish ment. Certinally this is why it is better to use this method in some areas, and not other.
