Two Death row inmates on Japan's death row are suing the government. WHY? Because they say it is inhumane and unconstitutional for inmates to be notified the same day as their execution. Sometimes the prisoners are notified with just hours left until they are set to die.
I once did a story on Marriette Bosch of Botswana and she was also executed on short notice. Her family had arrived at the prison for a scheduled visitation time but they found out she was already executed.
Do you guys think prisoners deserve to know far in advance when their execution date is? Do they need time to come to terms with the date? Is it fair that it's short notice because they gave their victims short notice of their deaths?
Let me know what you guys think it the comments below.
