In what countries do they still whip people?

Which places? Watched CNN and they whipped this guy for like 10 times while i was watching and there seemed no end in sight. In front of the whole village. That is way cruel, why cant they just put him in solitary somewhere? Or just take away his possesions or something. Sheesh.

In some African tribes whipping has been part of their culture for 1000s of years. If you asked them, the whippers and the whippees would both defend this tradition.

Similar to people who practice female gential cutting I'm sure that is right.

whipping is done is Muslim African nations. It is part of shariah law. You are whipped if you are caught drinking alcohol which is illegal under Islam. More extreme forms of shariah such as cutting off hands and stoning to death is also done such as in Northern Nigeria. Shariah law is popular among Muslims who believe it is divine law though most Muslim nations do not have these laws (I think).

I read the other day that in Indonesia, a person was sentenced to be whipped 20 times but after being whipped 6 times he fainted and his whipping will have to resume once he recovers.

CNN isn't that a TV-station from a country where the death penalty is still executed?

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Lots of countries still have things like whipping and caning as punishment. Not just in Africa.

Yes, in the most painless and humane fashion humankind has devised. Of course, those killed are Cop killers, serial killer rapists, etc. I am of course, not judging the practice, I was just very surprised. It seems physically brutal and very humiliating.

rapists spend notriously little time in jail, and why cop killers, specifically? is a person who kills a cop worse than someone who kills me?

the whipping is unfortunate though, but hardly suprising

i wasnt talking about rapists. the thread is about corporal punishment i witnessed in Africa on CNN this morning.

As for rapists, i dont know how long they spend in jail. I was saying Rape is not enough to get the death penalty. Usually the death penalty is carried on killers who rape women or children before they kill them. Most "killers" dont get the death penalty. It is the worst of the worst. And YES, if you are asking me if a person's penalty should be augmented for killing a police officer, I say yes. But I don't remember the legal or other reasoning behind it. I suppose being a cop is risky enuf, they need to be protected.

The only country I know of is Singapore. Of course, that isn't in Africa.

It's also rumored to be quitea frequent practice in USA prisons, both at home and abroad. But of course, the government denies this, and most media sources refuse to report on it.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Yes, and don't forget thousands of U.S. homes.

Actually, it might not even have been African. I assumed it was Africa because the people looked black African. Also the homes looked pretty African.

Yeah, i'm not talking about "if people get whipped". I am talking about a society that openly whips people as a direct form or retribution. It is entirely different. You're referring to isolated cases of police brutality and stuff. that is not the same thing, but of course, still worthy of discussion in another thread.

Again, it is not the state-condoned and official method of deterring "bad behaviour". This was on CNN TV.
