Police and prisons beauty pageants in Russia

The Enforcement and penal system finally have become a part of everyday life in Russia. They are now cultivating image of “warm and cozy” family home. For example, throughout the regions the Interior Ministry and the Federal Penitentiary hold beauty contests, which represented police women and criminal-minded women as the example of eternal femininity.

Throughout the twentieth century, few industrialized countries carry out executions of criminals.
Most trace this attitude to the Biblical roots of the country and the dictum of ‘‘eye for an eye’’ justice.. Only in 2010 the Japanese government for the first time half opened to local journalists Japanese death house: how execution chamber looks like. Reporters who were taken to the prison traveled in a bus, its windows obscured by curtains to hide the chamber’s location. One of them said afterwards: ‘There was the smell of incense… The impression was that of sterile objects in a clean, carpeted room.’ Japan, along with the United States remains one of the few developed countries that retain the death penalty. From 2000 to 2009, Japan had been sentenced to 112 people. The average waiting term of execution is six years. Death row inmates are notified an hour before the execution. Execution is by hanging. 86% of Japanese approve death penalty.
