Differences Among Execution Actors

Stoning is the least popular method of execution among execution actors that favor the death penalty. Stoning is by far the cruelest method of exection by intent. Although very popular in the Bible and especially the Old Testament, only a few nations use this method of execution. As with all other violent and bloody methods of execution, Executioners are much more favorable toward this method of execution, compared to abstract supporters of the death penalty (hard and soft). Hard Abstract Supporters are slightly more likely to okay this method of execution, when compared to Soft Abstract Supporters. However, 5% or fewer of abstract supporters are okay with stoning as a method of execution in the U.S. today. Executioners are three times more likely to favor stoning, when compared to abstract supporters. For a more detailed statistical analysis, click here.
