stoli n coke: Can't they just mash up a shiatload of sleeping pills into his last meal? He'll just think the gravy is extra lumpy.
Gonz: Seriously, though- can't we give this guy a cyanide pill or something?
TheBlackFlag: A shotgun with a slug, pressed up against the base of his skull would be quick and painless.
BronyMedic: The only problem is, it costs a shiatload more than imprisoning them,
Gortex: TheBlackFlag: A shotgun with a slug, pressed up against the base of his skull would be quick and painless.It would indeed. But would you really want to be the guy who pulls the trigger? I don't think I could, as much as I am in favour of the death penalty. I could flick a switch or pull a lever, but I think i lack the cahones to get up close to someone, point a rifle, and fire. Especially when that person poses no immediate threat to me.You'd have to be one messed up person for that deed to NOT give you night terrors. And if that doesn't trouble you, then you're already farked up.
gerbilpox: /not denigrating real depression//just not seeing the relevance
mutterfark: Why not bring back the gas chamber but use nitrous oxide?
No Such Agency: In medieval times, the electric chair wouldn't have had electricity. Instead there would have been a crank that pushed a serrated iron cone up your anus until you died. I'm opposed to the death penalty but let's keep some perspective about how "barbaric" its implementation is these days.
mutterfark: Why not bring back the gas chamber but use nitrous oxide?/whippet, whippet good//not serious///anti-death penalty////two minutes for slashying
Spazmojack: I don't know why we don't just drop condemned prisoners from airplanes over the ocean from a few thousand feet up. No mess, cheap, and it will work for anyone, regardless of how fat they have become.
Spad31: Bullshiat. A good big bullet through your fat-assed brain will do just fine. fark you, fatty.
soupafi: Maybe he shouldn't of killed someone
loonatic112358: or hook him up to an IV to first put him to sleep then administer the poison
Quantum Apostrophe: soupafi: Maybe he shouldn't of killed someoneDo you of any idea how annoying that is?
Mugato: That has to be the most expensive proposition ever presented. Why don't you just fly them into deep space?
doglover: Quantum Apostrophe: soupafi: Maybe he shouldn't of killed someoneDo you of any idea how annoying that is?To be killed for no good reason by someone who's now a fat fark trying to avoid execution? Yeah, I imagine it ruins your day.That's why death row should be a bit more speedy.Look at how fast the Oklahoma City bomber was killed. That should be the benchmark for the death penalty. Maybe even the slowest acceptable time.If you can't get someone dead that quickly, they shouldn't be on death row at all. Put 'em to work. Give 'em a hoe, some soil, and tell 'em to get to it. They wanna eat corn? They gotta grow it first.
BronyMedic: And there's a simple solution to his problem of IV access:[www.dolbymedical.co.uk image 400x304][ems.pgpic.com image 450x450][www.quadmed.com image 320x219]
cman: If I were ever given capital punishment I would want to have a firing squad.
gibbon1: mutterfark: Why not bring back the gas chamber but use nitrous oxide?You've kind of hit on something telling. If you wanted to painlessly kill the guy, putting him in a gas chamber and filling it with pure nitrogen would do it. 30 seconds and the guy'd be out cold, 5 minutes later dead. Do we do that, nope? Why? because for the mouth breathers there has to be some element of ritualistic retribution about it, even it's symbolic. So yeah lethal injection, use a nasty poison to kill the guy, but put him under so he doesn't feel it.
Mugato: mutterfark: Why not bring back the gas chamber but use nitrous oxide?/whippet, whippet good//not serious///anti-death penalty////two minutes for slashyingThat's bullshiat. When I was in high school we paid good money for that nitrous shiat. Why should a convicted murderer get it for free?
Lukeonia1: loonatic112358: or hook him up to an IV to first put him to sleep then administer the poisonUmmm...
iron de havilland: /Never understood why so many small government, stop-murdering-the-babbies types are also in favour of the government killing people.//Not trying to imply anything about your own leanings, Gortex, just an observation.
MythDragon: Though I'd also be interested in the guillotine, if my head could be positioned over some giant pachinko board, and someone wins a prize if my head lands in a certain basket
pag1107: He's been on Death Row for 30 years? Wow, that's inefficient. State's should model their Death Penalty statutes on Virginia. Fastest time from gavel to slab. The beltway sniper was sentenced in 2003 and got the needle in 2009 and that was considered a long stint as it goes in VA.

No warning.Or do it like China: the EXECUTION BUS!!!1

Jon iz teh kewl: soupafi: Maybe he shouldn't of killed someone/ pro death penaltyhe could have just been looking for food
Cpl.D: Hrm. How to properly execute a hyper-obese man on death row?... hrm. He's entitled to a last dinner, right? Put it on the top floor of a skyscraper and make him use the stairs. Problem solved, and you save the tax payers money, too.
gerbilpox: Ronald Post, who shot and killed a hotel clerk in northern Ohio almost 30 years agoWhat's wrong with this picture? The guy killed someone when he was age 23, we keep him locked up for 3 decades, then we kill him when his heart is probably about to give out anyway.I'm not saying we should have killed him sooner. We just should make it life in prison and call it even.Or release him now on "humanitarian" grounds. He's not mobile enough to hurt anybody, and the taxpayers won't have to fund his care anymore.Oh, wait: Obamacare. Damn that murderer-loving socialist.
Pattuq: If sentenced to death, execution should take place no more than one week later
