Who throws the stones? Who throws them?

From Lindsay: seven women have been condemned to be stoned to death for “crimes against chastity” in Iran. Ali Eteraz has the details on what you can do.
What I can’t stop thinking is: who throws the stones? What goes through their minds as they kill another human being that way?
And where does a society keep people like that when they’re not “working”?
*shudder*
Update: to be clear, all death penalties are barbaric and the psyche of anyone who carries out such a sentence is an unhappy mystery to me. I oppose the death penalty everywhere and in all forms, but this particular sentence for these particular “crimes” (do read the background) is especially horrible.
