If you really believe that North Korea only averages 21 executions a year, you are naive. They report that many and the commies at Amnesty International swallow it whole.

I wonder what you have to do to be sentenced to death in China... look at someone the wrong way?

What entertains me is that no one's considering the fact that our country, as well as several others, have habits of beating/murdering/making people disappear without the official "execution" tag. If we look at deaths by government, police and military persons, I bet those numbers would *drastically* shift.

The per-capita figures are absolutely irrelevant to this list, as it's only listing the actual number of executions carried out (or at least, the official figures available; I`m also rather dubious about the accuracy of any figures from North Korea). But if you do want to argue a lower place for the US on this list by using a per-capita figure, in order to be comparitively accurate with the other nations in the list that figure would have to be drawn from the population of the states which maintain active death penalties, not the population of the whole country. All of the citizens of the other countries on the list are potentially subject to a death sentence, but a significant proportion of US citizens are not subject to such penalties unless they move.
