    Let them suffer a bit. For what they did to their victims, it’s the least they can take. But, if you want to be all sissified, use nitrogen narcosis. Calm, painless, no needles and missed arteries or electrical burns or decapitated heads or blood as with other methods, plus you’ll never run out of nitrogen. If you want, you can even put in a “flavor” such as chocolate or strawberry as they do with gas anasthesia for little kids.

    Maybe first harvest their organs and then shoot them. Here’s a recent canidate,…..
    RICHARD MATT

    Date of birth: June 25, 1966

    Hometown: Tonawanda, New York

    Convicted of: first-degree murder, kidnapping, robbery.

    Richard Matt’s former fiancee, a step-brother and co-defendant took turns at Matt’s trial providing details of the 1997 kidnap, torture and hacksaw dismemberment of Matt’s 76-year-old former boss, whose body was found in pieces in the Niagara River.

    William Rickerson spent 27 hours on a snowy December night in the trunk of a car in pajamas while his killers drove from New York to Ohio and back, angry because he wouldn’t tell them the location of the large sums of money Matt was convinced Rickerson kept on hand.

    Co-defendant Lee Bates described how Matt at one point opened the trunk and bent the duct tape-bound elderly man’s fingers back until they broke. After driving some more, Matt snapped Rickerson’s neck with his bare hands.

    Gosh, I hope execution for capital crimes hurts!. One thing is certain, as a long ago convict, death is infinitely preferable to life or even multi decade prison sentences.

    This endless bleeding heart BS about the ‘cruelty’ of the death sentence is just plain silly. I think the real truth of the anti-death set, Chardonnay sipping liberals is that Christianity enjoys putting people in cages, for life. These are the same people who wail at the horror of caging a wild animal in a zoo, and then spend millions creating ‘open’ exhibits to protect the animals freedom.

    If you think it is hard on a wolverine to be caged, how do you rationalize caging a human for 40-60 years?

    You were convicted of a capital crime? Interesting that we should listen to your opinion. And if you want to punish someone, isn’t maximizing their punishment a goal? There are better ways of imprisoning someone and it’s cheaper overall to eliminate the death penalty.

    A little obsessed here with this case aren’t we?

    My objection to capital punishment is that the convictions are wrong as often as they are right. If you are accused of killing someone, whether for evidence or because you pissed off the wrong person, your odds are the same as flipping a coin. When the Illinois supreme court ruled that the state must provide dna testing in cases where it might have a bearing on the outcome, there were nine such cases on death row. Five of them were proved innocent.

    The death penalty needs to be abolished by all, including by criminals, but we know that won’t happen either. Life in prison for the murderer is a far better option anyway. Especially if later it is found they are factually innocent.

    people will found out who supplies and creates the drug. they will pressure the companies to stop selling the drug and stop making the drug. then, the states will be without a supply of the drug. so, then the states will pass laws to classify the contents and who creates the drug and who sells the drug. then, the states will go to a compounding company(loosely regulated, quality control issues, and track history of shadiness) to create the drug that they can’t get. so, when the condemned is strapped in, they might get impure chemicals. they would suffer and die. some people says that is justice. others say no(8th amendment). and, are we better for it or not?

    I’ve been incarcerated. I spent about a week as a student POW in survival school. It is nowhere near as intense as the real thing, but it wasn’t pleasant either. The biggest unpleasantly wasn’t the torture we were subjected to (torture in the media definition of the word: not real torture). It was my loss of freedom.


    Given a choice between life imprisonment without hope of parole or pardon and death, I’ll take death.


    So I think that the judicial system give the condemned a choice between life imprisonment or death. If you think you are innocent, you will opt for the former in the hopes of an overturned conviction. If you know you are guilty, the latter may have appeal for you, and save the state some money.

    If they suffer a little, no big deal … I’m sure they’ll get over it.
