    At least the inmate knows death is coming; what about the torture & eventual death of the victim?

    The interesting thing is, the reason it is so difficult to get the proper chemicals is that the anti-capital-punishment bunch has put so much pressure on the makers. THEY are the cause of what they are complaining about.

    Stop pluralising a single incedent.

    If it has to e done, pick a clean way, the Guillotine. It is a cut above everything else.

    Equine veterinarians put a horse down quickly and painlessly. Maybe they should do the job on criminals.

    Ruff: I wince at your sharp wit. ;^)

    “I will not hold for the penalty of death until you can show me that man is incapable of error.” Thomas Jefferson
    .
    Four things are required for tyranny, lacking all four, there is a chance of freedom, but with all four, hope can only come from outside.
    Censorship: We have that now, not directly from government, but indirectly by corporate sponsors who also own the government.
    Conscription: Its on the law books, but not enforced as long as massive unemployment forces the poor to “volunteer”.
    Capital Punishment: If life is not an unalienable right, liberty can’t be either.
    Prejudice: Not quite the Nazi concept of an artificially designated “Üntermenchen”, but close, with a diffused grab-bag of Muslims, Hispanics, blacks, gays, poor, political parties not Republicrat, peacemakers, etc.
    CCCP, switch to the Cyrilic alphabet and you will get one of the more successful manifestations of this philosophy.

    I find the blood-lust of the previous posts disgusting and unworthy of a civilized culture.

    Death penalty: State-sanctioned revenge, pure and simple. But hey, we had a self-described Christian run for president and brag about how many people his state executed. “Vengeance is mine,” sayeth the Lord- and I don’t remember Him following up with “unless you’re a Republican”.

    They had the people watch a two hour execution without providing them with refreshments? How inhumane!

    Brought to you by the European Union’s restriction on the export of reliable drugs for lethal injection. How many more murderers will benefit from the EU’s “mercy” before a better alternative means of execution is developed?

    -
    Are you saying that you oppose all forms of incarceration?

    Jefferson had it right on the death penalty, but it was accepted around the world in his time. (even for petty crimes in many places, as today)


    IF however, we are to have the death penalty, go back to hanging or firing squad as the only approved methods, as either of those is in actuality, more “humane” than lethal injection, gas chamber (cyanide OR nitrogen overdose), or most especially, electrocution (by far the most brutal).

    @TripleAxel

    eh? You blame the EU for refusing to export drugs that execute people as the reason why your country cannot execute ? Develop your own…I’m sure it isn’t too difficult for a country with global playing pharma companies. Ah yes, your pharmaceutical companies don’t want to participate in excutions either. What does that say? “It’s the EU’s fault, they are too merciful!”
    Sheesh!


    Abolish capital punishment and join the civilised world.
