Hatoyama shows his love for human life

We all remember a few months ago when he said that Japan executes people, because it values human life much more than Europe does. He had also complained that signing death warrants was a bit troublesome for him and that there should be some sort of automatic process---I imagine a conveyor belt from the courtroom to the gallows....

Hatoyama apparently took time out from conversations with his al Qaeda connections and signed the death warrants even though doing so was a bit of a bother. Four inmates, whom if truly guilty, are hard to feel any sympathy for were hanged yesterday in Tokyo.

Hatoyama made the "solemn" announcement at a news conference. He has changed the old policy of the government killing inmates without bothering to give their names. Those are now being released to the media.
