Saudi Arabia Does Something Right

Saudi Arabia is infamous for imposing vicious punishments on people for such horrific crimes as being a rape victim. But today it actually executed people for real crimes, instead of ones based on religion and misogyny.
Saudi Arabia executed two murderers including a Yemeni whose body was nailed to a cross after he was convicted of killing a fellow countryman and his daughter
Both were beheaded. No doubt the Saudis will get quite a bit of criticism from those calling these executions barbaric, especially since one included the desecration of a body after death. But here's what that individual did.
Shaaban al-Nasheri was beheaded for shooting dead Dhayeh al-Manbahi after barging into his family home ... Nasheri was also found guilty of raping and killing Manbahi's daughter before shooting and wounding her sister.
This guy invaded someone's home, killed a man, raped and killed his daughter, and shot another girl. Cutting his head off and nailing his headless body to a cross sounds like just punishment to me.
