It has nothing to do with English common law

I think there is no denial now that some Malayans were decapitated by British soldiers or the oriental mercenaries of the British Empire in Malaya during the 'Emergency' (see page. 303 of Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History). However much I oppose to and condemn that practice, I still have to say that decapitation has nothing to do with English Common Law or 'methodology' of English Common Law.

Respect concept of individual autonomy
