If the death penalty is OK, why do they do this in Japan?
In Japan, when carrying out an execution (hanging), the prisoner is placed on a trap door and three officers are behind curtains with three buttons, they press it all at once so no one knows which button activated the trap.
Don't they mean killing is always wrong?

No, they are smart enough to know that the possible guilt of the executioner can be debilitating. That's why in the US with military firing squads, some get blanks so they don't know who shot the person.

I don't think that means it's "wrong". Most of us don't enjoy killing people though. I suppose that set-up allows three good men to share the burden when it's necessary to end a life.

In the US, multiple people push the button as well.

No, it means no matter how justified the killing may be, many good people will still be affected by having to do it.
