It's been a good day for justice in the United States. Texas gave the injection to Gregory Summers, who hired a hitman to kill his parents and uncle for the insurance money, and Florida put down serial killer Danny Rolling, murderer of five young women. Any complaints from other more enlightened and illustrated nations?

By the way, the executed murderers were both white and middle-class.

Here is a list of murderers executed in the United States since capital punishment was reinstituted in 1977. And their victims.

Update: Danny Rolling, before his execution for killing five Florida college students, admitted having also murdered three more people in Louisiana.
