    Rambling nonsense once again Ted.

    Just like your posts.

    There was a Dr Who episode where the population got to vote on execution of their political leaders.

    It wasn’t until the 19th century that the gentry lost their stomachs for long, excruciating executions. Dickens wrote of a (fictional) trial set in the late 18th century with a possible sentence of hanging, drawing, and quartering (although, when they sentenced a woman to burn at the stake in the late 18th century, they DID put a rope around her neck so the gentry wouldn’t have to listen to her screams as she simultaneously strangled and burned).


    Finally, the US have realised that our ancestors knew best. The best way to keep the peace is to employ the techniques of the genius penologist Tomás de Torquemada!

    Firing squad. Simple. Cheap. Fool-proof. Proven. Instant.

    Perhaps we could surgically remove small parts of their bodies and allow ample time for recovery between surgeries, and near the end use all sorts of life-support machinery to keep them alive until finally I suppose something terminal would have to be removed. That way we could combine the cost of solitary confinement and enormous medical costs so we as a society can go broke and insane at the same time.

    It’s inhumane because they’re not allowed to have that last cigarette anymore.

    “Yelled and choked.” Not one witness described it that way. I heard/read “gasped and snorted” and “sounded like he was snoring”. This guy’s obviously a liar.

    But funny. And not really nonsensical. Just shows the eternal incompetence of govt agents. Abolish the death penalty.

    @Rad-ish

    Would it be rude to vote to execute all of them?

    @Gregory Kruse

    I wish I’d read this before I drew my cartoon.

    Just occurred to me: I missed a chance to make an Obamacare joke here.
