So why don't we just overdose them with morphine?  We know it works, and we know it's painless, and it's less messy than my idea of using explosive lenses to implode the heads of criminals like the pit of an atomic bomb, which, btw, is quite humane, because the explosive shockwave is faster than nerve conduction speed, so it's like instantly turning off a light.  They'd never even know when the end happens, because they'd be dead before the sensations could reach their brains.

Piece of rope works well and cheaper too.

Mystery to me. Mind you, I don't really favor the death penalty - even if some folks richly deserve it. The methods they use now are just plain idiotic.

Just use a firing squad if you want someone dead.

- no complex medical procedure
- hard to screw up
- bullets are pretty damn cheap
- quick death for the convict
- organs that aren't shot can be put to good use

QFTA:

A federal judge sided with the state but acknowledged the new method was an experiment.

Please have this judge removed from the bench. This is an idiot. A cruel, nasty idiot.

Or knock them out with it and use cyanide, that'll kill you way faster than 15 minutes.
 
2014-01-16 03:04:41 PM
What, did they run out of dynamite? That's the way I'd want to go. Pretty messy, though. Might want to take me out into the middle of a field.

So, does he usually snore?

I wonder of the pregnant lady he raped and stabbed to death suffered more or less than he did.....
 
2014-01-16 03:05:19 PM
Rope, guillotine, firing squad, nitrogen narcosis chamber (apparently no pain like cyanide, no toxic cleanup afterward).  How hard is this people?
 
2014-01-16 03:05:22 PM
He was convicted 25 years ago? The swift sword of justice, I guess.

I heard in Russia they told you they needed to take your picture.  Put you in a little booth and tell you to look at the "camera".  Can't get much more "humane" than that.

Gee. I wonder how long the pregnant woman had to suffer at his hands before she punched the clock? I guess that doesn't matter to the FARK.com brigade huh?

What does it matter, since killing him will magically bring her back to life?

Oh wait...
 
2014-01-16 03:07:39 PM
I think a bullet behind the ear should the SOP. Cheap, easy, and plenty of people in prisons who would do it for an extra tray at dinner.

If there is any travesty here it's the forgotten pain, anguish, and fear a woman felt as she was raped, beaten, and murdered. While pregnant with child. FFFFFF*ck this animal. SHE is the victim, not him.
 
2014-01-16 03:07:47 PM
Fkin barbaric is raping and stabbing an 8 months pregnant woman.

So..im ok with this.

I'm curious to know more about humanely imploding human heads.  We routinely accept the euthenasia of animals.  If it's okay for them then it's okay for humans.

Too bad this guy suffered a full 15 minutes, but I imagine he made his victim suffer for at least that long.

jigger: He was convicted 25 years ago? The swift sword of justice, I guess.


You have the right to a speedy trial (though that seems to be going out the window thanks to budget cutbacks in both prosecution and public defenders), and the right to appeal your sentence. The good thing to do is drag it out for all the people who may have been falsely convicted, because I know Texas has killed a couple of innocent people.

Agonal breathing while someone is dying. I am shocked. SHOCKED.

Honestly though, the guillotine was a marvelous invention. Less than 1 second and it was over, guaranteed. Even firing squad can't guarantee that. PLUS they're great for politicians.

Can't really muster a shiat to give.

Nope in USSR days the execution method if you was on death row your cell had a solid door and then one day when the food tray slot opened instead of your tray coming through the barrel of a pistol did.

Good.    He killed a pregnant woman with a knife!     I am sure that he was as concerned about her last moments as some of you fools will be for his.

I don't care if they let pigs eat him to death....don't kill people if you don't want to be killed.

It sounds like the guy was unconscious and the snorting and gasping were the body's involuntary reactions.

If this is true then he wasn't aware of any suffering, but the procedure/drugs should be changed.

I feel more empathy for the witnesses.

Quick, Painless, Flawless.  Why fark around?  If drug companies dont want to be associated with executions then we have plenty of alternatives.  Make sure to publisize it and hold up a sign that says "This needlessly brutal execution brought to you by big pharma, be sure to thank them!"
Also bring back Burning at the stake for kiddy diddlers, we could run round the clock footage of all the states executions on its own cable channel with comercials to make up the cost.

Would be the most viewed channel in farking history, and you farking know it.

super_grass: Just use a firing squad if you want someone dead.


You'd have to automate it. One of the reason they stopped was that the men on the firing squads were (for want of a better word) squeamish, so you got stories of three rounds of volleys from 15 feet that all missed the guys head, so he instead bleeds out very, very painfully.

WTFDYW: I'm ok with this jpg.


But are you absolutely confident that every single person in the US on death row is there legitimately? Would you be okay with doing this to someone because the cops wanted to get back to their donuts, and the DA was making a run for congress?
 
2014-01-16 03:11:27 PM
I agree with firing squad; or give 'em a date with a rope. None of this expensive chemical crap. Or, if we have to use chems; potassium cyanide.

/ Actually, why don't we test stuff on death row inmates? We could toss them into the vacuum of space and such

Should've been a lethal injection of steel like he gave to his victim.

AMF, POS
 
2014-01-16 03:11:58 PM
If we're GOING to have the death penalty then it really behooves us to do things as humanely as possible. Gasmask seems like a good solution -- give 'em nitrous & oxygen and then cut the oxygen.

Dennis McGuire was convicted for the 1989 rape and fatal stabbing of 22-year-old Joy Stewart, who was newly married and pregnant. He tried to have his execution stayed because the jury never heard the full extent of his abuse as a child.

Uh huh. I think that's not a good enough reason to appeal, or change the sentence he received...

Good riddance.

Next!
