~ The newly crowned King Salman of Saudi Arabia (am I the only one who keeps hearing Solomon in their head when his name is mentioned?) apparently didn’t attend the execution of a convicted rapist this past week.
The criminal kept attesting to his innocence, right down to the last moment before the executioner did the deed.
Its odd to me that the NEWS media seems to be adding their conjecture on why or why not the new King didn’t attend the event since he hasn’t really given a definitive answer. When I go to coffee with King Salman next week I’ll be sure to ask him.
What does strike me the most is that in Saudi Arabia they kill rapists, and here in the United States we tend to give them a slap on the wrists and a few weeks in jail. Am I missing something here? Why is it that the United States spends more time hassling drivers who are going six miles over the speed limit than we do ridding our communities of convicted rapists and child molesters? Well, that is unless your a Hollywood star and an accused rapist; then we will hound you every day in the NEWS media over and over, because that is what the NEWS media does best.
