MyKingdomForYourHorse: hardinparamedic: They've gone away from giving the traditional three drug cocktails, and are now just giving one big-ass dose of anesthetic agent.

Its actually more humane, the three drug cocktail when administered the way it was there were possibilities the person being executed would never fully be out.


Ya know what: I just don't give a damn if it's humane.

hej: Lee451: tom baker's scarf: It is one of the few states that allow execution of the mentally feeble.

Is that why so many farkers hate Texas? they are afraid of being arrested there?

- GWB is from Texas.
- They're massively conservative and pro gun.
- They somehow have the ability to dictate education standards to the rest of the country, and like to use that to further creationist world views (and presumably other evangelical quackery).
- The perception is that they're second only to Florida for being a source general stupidity and craziness.  Usually with a strong redneck flavor.
- You've probably heard of Rick Perry.

The death penalty is too good for Glenn Beck.  We need to bring back some medieval forms of punishment for that dildo.

My first thought was, "Yay!" cuz I really hate Glenn Beck.

Then I read the story. Damn...that is hideous. And the other two rapists are still on the loose. One down, two to go. I hope they find them and fry, or well, knock them out then suffocate them too.

mooseyfate: Omnivorous: Mistaken identity.

Now go get the real one.

How do you figure that? Because the dude said so? He also said he saved her life with his uninvited dick insertion, so I'm not about to give his words much weight.


I think Omnivorous meant, go get the real Glenn Beck.

We need to find his philactery first.

The5thElement: It's an execution. I fail to see anything humane about it.


I look at it like putting a rabid/ill dog down.  At the point you're executing somebody, you don't want to make it any more painful than it has to be.

The old 3 drug cocktail was suboptimal.  One possibility was that you'd still be awake as the other two chemicals paralyzed you(so you can't signal your distress), and the other stopped your heart, causing intense pain.  There are a few death penalty advocates who stated this was deliberate - they'd oppose switching to a less painful(theoretically) solution.

The new drug -sodium pentobarbital is the same drug that loving pet owners have vets use to put down their terminally ill animals.  It's also used by patients wishing to commit assisted suicide.

Personally, I'd rather go with nitrogen asphyxiation, because with that you don't even need to put a needle in their arm.

Touché. Comment withdrawn, and a tip o' the hat to the Omnivorous one.

So they haven't given up executing the retarded?

I have mixed feelings on this.
 
2013-04-10 11:02:01 PM  
Done in negative one!
