Just a reminder that the pain and futility of capital punishment is a worldwide thing.

May they rest in peace.

Three prisoners on death row in Japan have been hanged, the country's justice ministry has said.

The executions bring to 10 the number of prisoners hanged since December 2006.
Amnesty International and media reports identified the men as Hifumi Takezawa, 69, and Yoshio Iwamoto, 60, who were executed in Tokyo, and Kozo Segawa, 63, who was executed in Nagoya.

Inmates are given little notice that they will be executed, so as to prevent last-minute appeals. Critics have also noted that Japan conducts executions while parliament is in recess, allegedly to avoid debate on the topic.
