    Is it Execution or Murder?
    Is their a difference?
    Execution is generally the term for a legal, government sanctioned killing of someone who has broken the law.

    Murder is generally the term for the illegal killing of a person.

    So, yes there is a difference.

    But there constitution really does say that the government may execute those it finds troublesome? What is there standard for deciding.

    BTW: I only posted the last because I thought that if they'd actually used delete in the constitution it would have been a little bit funny.

    Why everyone upset over a commie lawyer getting killed.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Obviously folk in the USA by and large ignore whatever happens within the confines of Russian interest.
    They ignore it to their peril.
    Russia has as part of it's constitution a section that permits Russian Security to delete anyone who is seen (by Russian authorities) to be against interest of Russia.
    And the NKVD rises like a Phoenix from the ashes of glasnost.

No, and it is really none of our business unless it actually has to do with us directly.
    The reason I find stuff like this disturbing is that I was a young man serving in the military from 1985 to 2002. I spent years training for the day that the Soviet Union stormed the Fulda Gap. I watched in amazement as the Soviet Union disintegrated and Russia began an emergence from a very dark history. It was exciting to see, two great ideologies on the brink of destroying the world and in my mind the good guys won.

    And now, here we are. With Russia slipping backwards into darkness again.
