Capital Punishment In Japan


Capital punishment is legal in Japan and is applicable for convicted murderers only. The Japanese government regularly polls its citizens to gauge where public opinion lay in respect to this form of punishment. Typically, polls show approximately 80% of people finding execution by the state permissible, especially if the crime committed is especially egregious or heinous, with 80% of the public being in favor as shortly ago as 2015. Executions are carried out only by hanging

The Forced Exploitation of Afghani Farmers By the Taliban 


Not only does the Taliban force Afghani farmers into growing poppies for opium production by methods of intimidation and the threat of violence and/or death to the farmers and their families, they also incentivize these people by paying large loans in cash beforehand which is attractive to poor Afghan farmers who see the money as a quicker and more reliable method rather than farming the land to feed their family. This system is intentionally designed to ensure the farmers are monetarily indebted to the person providing the loan so that they must produce and yield a certain amount of crop in order to pay that debt back. Some opium farmers end up selling their daughters in an exchange to become debt free, having daughters as young as 12 marry drug lords who often acquire 4 or 5 wives because they have the income to do so. Over 1,000,000 (1 million) people in Afghanistan are addicted to heroin making the problem both localized as well as internationalized abroad. 90% of the world’s heroin production comes from Afghanistan. The Quran actually stipulates that it is against Islamic law to both grow as well as consume opium. While other crops take 3 – 5 years to reach their full potential in terms of yield each year, poppy crops are immediately fruitful after their first year

The Power and Reach of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 


The Federal Bureau of Investigation has an annual operating budget of $8,000,000,000 ($8 billion), staffing over 13,500 special agents and over 22,000 analysts, scientists, and specialists. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has over 400 locations in the US and dozens of international offices referred to as “legal attaches”. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has hundreds of agents in over 80 countries around the world, truly making it a global law enforcement force. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation infiltrates a vehicle or building, they typically send 10 agents, each with a special task. Someone will disable the alarm, someone will photograph the room effected so nothing is put back out of place even going so far as to place a piece of tape where a chair was or add their own dust they brought along if dust was disturbed during the mission or bringing a small vacuum to clean up any debris caused by drilling into a wall. If the owner of the vehicle or building is on their way and could expose the operation, local police will intercept them by staging a traffic stop for a ticket, staging a traffic accident, or even opening a fire hydrant so nobody can cross through the road. In some instances, agents will enter a building while the target is home. Instances of this have occurred in the past with phone lines purposely being degraded in their call quality so that the owner calls the telecommunications company they are with for an on-site consult. The Federal Bureau of Investigation intercepts this call and places their own person in place of the actual repair person so that a listening device can be installed or any other desired outcome achieved. This method was effective and instrumental in taking down multiple high ranking mafia members including John Gotti

Pedophilic Sex Offenders


Statistically, 70% of sex offenders who have committed sexual acts with minors under 18 have between 1 and 9 victims, and 20% have between 10 and 40 victims. Recidivism rates for sex offenders are typically 43% and these offenders are typically re-arrested for a variety of reasons which relate to their original conviction. Sex offenders are approximately 4x more likely than non-sex offenders to be arrested for another sex crime after their discharge from a correctional institution

Police Informants


Most informants for law enforcement are people who have been caught doing something illegal (e.g. dealing illicit drugs) and want to avoid a criminal record and/or time spent in prison. These people cooperate with law enforcement and typically get themselves deeply indebted. Informants reside in places they normally wouldn’t spend time in and consume illicit drugs which they normally wouldn’t ingest to make connections and meet their quota for the amount of arrests and raids law enforcement requires of them. Informants are typically vulnerable people who are taken advantage of because they know they have little or no option otherwise. This exploitation by law enforcement is strikingly similar to how a criminal takes advantage of a prostitute. Neither law enforcement nor the criminal care about the person being exploited, they only want what they need and if this need is not met, they hang these exploited persons out to dry. It is not unusual for police to press the initial charges that the person working with them was trying to evade to begin with when their demands are not met which is similar in tactic to how a criminal at best beats and at worst kills the prostitute working for them

Death Row In the United States of America


In the United States of America, an incarcerated person cannot be executed before they are deemed fit to do so by medical personnel. An inmate can be deemed unfit for any number of reasons (e.g. being identified as insane, bleeding from a gunshot wound, unconscious due to head trauma etc.). Inmates are allowed to shower before the execution and they are permitted to wear clothing of their own choosing, doing away with prison attire if they so desire. Inmates are allowed to ask for additional food and drink during their last meal if they consume what was provided to them and reasonable requests for anything else are usually granted. It takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete an execution from the time the inmate is brought from their holding cell to the execution chamber to the time they take their last breath. Strapping the inmate down takes approximately 2 minutes and the intravenous medication used for the execution takes approximately 15 minutes to take full effect. The lethal combination of medications are given in two steps, the first taking approximately 5 minutes before the secondary lethal dose is provided which also takes approximately 5 minutes after which time the inmate continues to live until the medication takes their life which takes approximately another 5 minutes
