    Presuming the first panel is true,
    They need to get better doctors. Any hospital that used THAT excuse for botched IVs would be sued down to the basement for malpractice.

    Do they use an alcohol swab?

    Yeah, I read them. And yes, your attitude sucks. I’m against capital punishment, full-stop.

    Maybe you’d change your mind if you’d seen some of their handiwork, ro do you oppose killing mad dogs too?

    Being forever exiled from society is penalty enough. It is a form of living death to social animals like humans. Just say NO to capital punishment!

    We call capital punishment cruel and unusual. We make it easier on condemned killers to BE killed (executed). No one seems to remember the acts the killer did were cruel or unusual, regardless of how heinous the act. Maybe the punishment should fit the crime?

    And yes the first panel is true!

    I’m not above revenge. I cannot say how I would react if I witnessed murder or any of my family suffered at the hands of a criminal. I imagine I would be rather vengeful if anything happened to my wife or daughter. However:
    I do not expect the state to be my avenger. I certainly do not want any government to be carrying out vengeance. Justice, yes, but not revenge. Leave revenge up to me.

    It is shameful that a country like the USA still has capital punishment. No other long established democracy has it. Interesting how you are quite willing to debase yourself to support state murder. Mad dogs, eh? Dehumanise them. Reveals much more about yourself. Interesting.

    “O.K. We can just send YOU the bill for the $30,000 a year it costs to feed, house, and clothe EACH prisoner.”
    Well, it costs far, far, far more to put a prisoner on death-row. So, guess what, mate, you’re paying through your nose for the pleasure of revenge.

    Good one. I got it but it appears many did not.

    “More big-government right-wingers who want to make sure the state has the power to kill people.”
    Did you notice Gary, that I just replied to two blokes who usually respond from the left?
    I’m afraid those that support the death-penalty are both from the left and right.

    @olfart… does that include neutering the mad dog owner?

    Apply these actions or punishments to yourself. I suspect you’ll start to understand why they are considered cruel. Isn’t cruel unconstitutional? At least for the government?

    It’s all a true story. In the 2009 execution, the procedings dragged on so long that the inmate was granted a bathroom break.

    @omQ R

    I’m with this. Incredibly, even the Taliban allow the family of the victim to decide whether or not a murderer should be executed. We should at least try to catch up to the Taliban’s higher morality.
