Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
The End Is in Sight?
The high-profile manhunt, capture, trial and conviction of Nelson ‘Cannibal’ Bonaparte has been occupying news headlines for months, and now the serial slaughterer is finally scheduled to be executed. While most executions tend to have a few people in the viewing gallery, the notoriety of the infamous ingester of infants has demand for ringside seats at an all-time high.
I’ve encountered with 4 choices
1. “I guess I wanna see with my own eyes that he’s definitely dead and gone,” explains mum-of-three Aria Hammarskjöld, filling a carton with toffee-flavoured popcorn. “Also, it’d be so cool to tell the other school-mums that we saw the Cannibal die, they’ll be totes jealous. My youngest has a day off nursery especially for this. I mean, I just think you should have a place with a proper viewing area so that more people can watch the big show.”
2. “A baying crowd would lack a certain decorum,” observes professional executioner Gary North. “Instead, why not have the execution broadcast live on television? Millions could tune in from their own homes, and you could double the entertainment value by having viewers vote on what novel method of execution should be used. It’d be fun to see Bonaparte get dropped in a shark tank, or drowned in custard, or squashed by a giant plastic foot, don’t you think?”
3. “The death penalty is a regrettable necessity, not an entertainment event,” intones Judicial Review Officer Luna Turner, glaring sternly at you over her gold-rimmed spectacles. “The public should be excluded from the process of judicial execution. The convicted soul, an executioner and a single medical witness – there’s no need for anyone else in the room.”
4. “Wait… we’re not one of those loopy nations that have the death penalty, are we?” panics confused civil servant Sayid Clason, checking through the legislation archive files to see what policies you’ve enacted in this hectic year. “That’s some kind of error, right? Tell me that’s an error!”
5. Dismiss the issue
Option 3. sounds nice so I choose it.
The result saids ‘Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist.’
In result, my nation get a boost of this qualities.
Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index 0.30%
Martin Luther King, Jr. Units 0.14%
And decline in this qualities
Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index 0.45%
This choice is OK.
