John on the Sunset Coast BS: Last of the Yazidis (94* d) RE: BS: Last of the Yazidis 14 Aug 14

"The US executes over a hundred people a year. Unbelievable."

You are right Shaw, it IS unbelievable. Since 'over a hundred' is a nebulous quantity, I can only say that your post overstates the number by much MORE THAN DOUBLE in the last 4 years, and MORE THAN 3 TIMES on average since executions kicked back in in 1976 (average 36 executions per year in whole of USA). It took me about ten minutes to get the actual numbers by from several sources by google searching "USA executions", "Prisoners executed USA" or similar.

Have fun checking it out, pal.
