Why even have the death penalty if you’re not going to use it on a guy like this?

Politically, I subscribe to something akin to the “Seamless Garment,” so a big fan of capital punishment I am not.

That said, if you’re going to have capital punishment on the books—and Korea does—I can think of few people more deserving than this monster, who was just sentenced to life in the pen.

Despite the fact that the country hasn’t executed anyone since 1998, the death penalty enjoys wide support in Korea. President-elect Park Geun-hye supports it, too, and her dad was such a big fan of it that he once had eight people executed for sedition just 18 hours after their sentencing.

Anyway, the family of Wu’s victim aren’t happy:

The victim’s family expressed anger at the court, saying such a “demon” like Wu deserved capital punishment, but judges were too lenient.

“We don’t understand why the state should spend valuable taxpayers’ money on keeping him in a prison,” a family member told reporters.

Like I did in the title of the post, I ask, why even have the death penalty if you’re not going to use it on a guy who raped, murdered and then dismembered a young woman with the likely intent of selling her flesh for human consumption?

    He is Chinese-Korean… he was raised watching man’s best friends (cats and dogs) abused, tortured and slaughtered for their meat.

    He obviously regarded women as just “kitties, or pussies” – ready to be slaughtered.

    This is why the abuse and consumption of dogs and cats in China and Korea must stop!

    The scary thing is he probably didn’t rape her even but solely for the purpose of selling her human flesh to rich Chinese who like to rejuvenate with human flesh…

    Youtube “인신매매” and just check out the reports on the human flesh trade from Korea to China.

    If Korea won’t use it, why not hand it over to the US?
