Where's Amnesty International?
Expat in Japan John Monasch forwards this article
on Japan's attempt to execute Tomomitsu Niimi, a "key player" in the Aum Shinrikyo cult. He asks, "for the people that are against [capital punishment], where are they now and why aren't they protesting and condemning Japan for it's 'barbarism'? Haven't seen anything on Amnesty International's site yet, just stuff about the U.S."
That's a good question, and I haven't been able to find anything on Amnesty's site about this either. What gives? Surely this organization wouldn't be engaged in selective outrage....
