Are executions carried out on the sabbath?

The question is not specific as to who is executing (i.e. is this a question about Jewish Law, American Law, Chinese Law, etc.) as a result, it is hard to give a substantive answer. In America, executions typically do not take place on Saturdays or Sundays in order to avoid paying overtime for the executors. In Jewish Law, any form of execution requires an act of work (tying nooses, administering chemicals, etc.), making it a violation of the Sabbath. Additionally, executing someone is in violation of the spirit of the Sabbath which is intended to be restful and peaceful as opposed to violent. China does not care about the Judeo-Christian Sabbath.
