The execution van, also called a mobile execution unit, was developed by the government of the People's Republic of China and was first used in 1997. The prisoner is strapped to a stretcher and executed inside the van. The van allows death sentences to be carried out without moving the prisoner to an execution ground. The vans also require less manpower per execution, requiring four persons to assist with the injection. The PRC states that the vans are more humane than previous forms of execution. Human-rights groups predict that the execution rate in China will increase because of mobile capital punishment.

If a criminal commits a crime that would result in a death sentence and he can reduce the chance of being apprehended by committing more crime, then he will. As for example, killing witnesses and victims that can testify against him.

I would like to see the reasoning for the death penalty.
How should it be carried out?
I honestly can't see how the death penalty can be regarded as consistent with liberalism.It's not. It's a throwback to more violent times. This is why most progressive and civilized countries have done away with it.

In the U.S., states that have abolished the death penalty have consistently had lower murder rates on average.
There are many factors, but the death penalty hasn't been shown to make up for most of the difference.
