    Ya, a real swell guy……..
    Joseph Wood and his 29-year-old ex-girlfriend, Debbie Dietz, had been involved in a turbulent relationship for 5 years, which had been marred by numerous breakups and several domestic violent incidents. Debbie was working at a local body shop owned by her family. On August 7, 1989, Wood walked into the shop and shot Gene Dietz, age 55, in the chest with a .38 caliber revolver, killing him. Gene Dietz’s 70-year-old brother was present and tried to stop Wood, but Wood pushed him away and proceeded into another section of the body shop. Wood went up to Debbie, placed her in some type of hold, and shot her once in the abdomen and once in the chest, killing her.

    An honest question (not rhetorical):
    Veterinarians routinely euthanize animals, mammals as small as rodents or as big as horses.
    We are told it is quick & painless. I watched my dog die. It seemed reasonable.
    Why is it so hard to do the same with human mammals?
    I’m really ignorant about this.
    TIA for enlightening me.

    It’s all the fault of the Greeks. Because of the crisis, someone named Hippocrates has been selling a silly ‘oath’ that those with the knowledge of the secret, most advanced ways to kill people aren’t supposed to tell anyone about it, so the US states that have capital punishment on their laws have to get people with absolutely no training to try to hit a vein and inject something that cannot be the same as what the vets use, since these are horrible, criminal people, not innocent animals.

    Just think of the revenue the Pay-Per-View rights could have made…

    “Just think of the revenue the Pay-Per-View rights could have made”

    I wish I could disagree with that as a concept, but public executions used to draw pretty good crowds.

    This seems to be a new issue. I recall reading an article back it was first reported of this phenomenon that there was a shortage of the “proper” drugs used in lethal injection. Other drugs were used in their place with less than painless results. The companies supplying the lethal injection drugs should be investigated, if they haven’t been already.

    And for that they sentenced him to execution. This cartoon isn’t commenting on whether he should have been executed, or the death penalty itself. It’s commenting on how long it took to kill him.

    “the death penalty lets them off too easy.”

    Just what exactly did you have in mind?

    The companies that supply the lethal injections drugs have decided they don’t want anything to do with executions and have threatened to withhold the drugs from the American market if we continued to use them. These drugs are used for a multitude of other things as medical treatments so they can no longer be used. They can draw and quarter guys like Wood, unfortunately they occasionally also execute innocent people.

    Consider the fact that on average, it costs over $52.000 A YEAR PER PRISONER to feed them, clothe them, medical care, and the like. Multiply that by the number of prisoners incarcerated in the country, and the figures become quite staggering VERY quickly.
    Why keep someone on Death row for years and years, while they file Useless Appeal after Appeal?
    Let them run through the Appellate Court system ONE TIME, but if there is NO reasonable cause for a new trial found, they have less then 6 weeks before they get put down.

    So can we use what the vets use on innocent humans?

    Or you could abolish capital punishment altogether. I hear California’s supreme court ruled on it recently.
