    The Oklahoma Repubs vote for death death death, threaten to impeach their State Supreme Court unless they get death death death and then they get it: Death death death and they pull the curtain and start ‘investigating.’

    Vote in November.

    Simple. Just call it abortion.

    @narrowminded

    Are you acting like the proverbial one trick pony with nothing to add about the intended subject, or are you just trying to deflect away from the intended subject?

    When performed properly, beheading, hanging, and lethal injection each could be considered the most human (relatively speaking). Beheading and hanging are meant to be instant, while those subject to lethal injection are anesthetized.

    The electric chair was designed by Edison to show how dangerous alternating current electricity is. His intent was for people to associate the horrors of electrocution with alternating current to give his competing direct current generators more public favor.

    Killing people is, by definition, not humane. Doesn’t matter if it is done by a government or by an individual.
    I posted this as part of a post elsewhere, but:
    We’re the only so-called “civilized” nation in the G7 that executes people. In fact, we are fifth-ranked for most executions from 2007-2012. Here’s the top ten:
    1. China
    2. Iran
    3. Saudi Arabia
    4. Iraq
    5. USA
    6. Pakistan
    7. Yemen
    8. North Korea
    9. Vietnam
    10. Libya
    If you favor capital punishment for some reason, you might want to ask yourself about the company we keep.

    You must have watched the Pierrepoint movie, where he claimed that his hangings always resulted in instantaneous, painless death as the neck was broken. The movie was a typical UK attempt to say that they were doing things right, unlike the upstart Barbarians on the other side of the Atlantic. The actual post-mortems told a very different story, a story of slow deaths involving half an hour or more of excruciating pain. (It was seeing hangings after the 19th century passed its midpoint and most people wanted quick, painless executions that persuaded New York State to switch to the electric chair, a method Edison promised would be quick, easy, and painless. It wasn’t.)

    If you want to do the “humane” thing than simply take all of the murders and rapists from all the death rows and move them to Detriot. They’ll end up killing each other and we won’t have to worry about the liberals crying about people getting killed.

    Yes, because they were so humane to their victims!!! I’m so sick of garbage like this, they deserve NOTHING. So it hurts too bad, do you think he was concerned about the pain his victim suffered??? That would be a NO!

    @Mr King

    “So do any of you really think we should ignore the 8th amendment of the Constitution?”

    “cruel and unusual” is indeterminate.

    You’ve obviously never actually SEEN that film, only heard about it.
    Because it’s nothing like you described

    All my adult life I have wrestled with the thought of capital punishment: Justice or cruelty?

    Still, I feel no pity for this one. He showed nothing but hate and barbarism to his victim.

    A rope is quick and sure, but life in solitary confinement, without possibility of parole, ever, is a gift that keeps on giving. (And if it turns out the conviction was wrong, they ain’t dead.)

    original thought… the founders of this nation supported a biblical order.. "he who takes the life of an innocent man shall have his life taken.. ".. cruel and unusual punishment meant such things as the “stocks”, the Iron maiden, etc.. Yet, our society would rather pay taxes to keep the murderers alive and paying to keep animals alive while killing off how many millions of children.. .. no, they are not fetuses.. they are children.. Historically, once a nation begins to de-humanize a person it makes it easier to eliminate them… as per the Nazi and Communist’s under Stalin.
