The guillotine was intended as a humane execution device.  Maybe messy to look at, but better than Theon Greyjoy.
 
2014-06-10 08:03:23 PM
If done correctly, hanging and firing squad are instant death. Very humane
 
2014-06-10 08:04:31 PM
Well there shouldn't be any death penalty at all but if there is to be one, the electric chair is pretty farked up.
 
2014-06-10 08:10:15 PM
Whatever makes the righteous feel better about themselves in their persuit of wrathful vengeance meted by the hands of the state is alright by me because I'm saved!

This country celebrates people everyday who died from gunfire. I don't know if that as an argument against or for the firing squad.

/executions are an ancient evil, regardless of method

I think I see the potential issue here

Death by electrocution, death by gas, death by phaser, death by hanging...

ArkAngel: If done correctly, hanging and firing squad are instant death. Very humane


That isn't true.  Firing squads aim for the heart and just because the heart is gone, doesn't mean the brain is dead for 30 seconds or maybe even more.  Hanging can cause the same issue.  In most cases the person will go into shock which makes it look instant but who knows.  There is also the question of how many even care about that last few seconds.

The real cause of death is always a lack of oxygen to the brain.

Why not nitrous oxide? Don't need a vein and it's not going to kill the executioner. Too easy or something?

But first, Chi Chi.
 
2014-06-10 10:02:10 PM
If they don't remove any current options, and are just adding new options that the criminal freely chooses from, can you really say someone's rights are being violated? They need a Death Penalty brochure with glossy paper that illustrates the pros and cons of each method.

/ or we could just not kill them, you know
 
2014-06-10 10:02:14 PM
Why stop there, when there's other options, like the Pear of Anguish up the anus or the Oberyn Martell?

Thus preventing oxygen from getting to it.  Also remember that organs are really picky about *how* they get their oxygen.

How about the liberal's genocide of over 10 million babies for convenience abortions?

No one at risk - mother or child. No grey areas. Just straight up killing babies out of convenience.

Do not think you will not pay for murder.

They should get it over with and turn it into a game show. Maybe call it "This Death Is Right" and have beautiful women fawning around the instruments of execution (in scanty somewhat related style costume) while the host excitedly expounds on the history of that type of instrument. The soon to be executed compete in games of chance for their preferred method - with Vegas betting on the outcome.

BRB, got to pitch this to Fox

But what kills the brain cells in that case?  The fact they can't get oxygen outside a functioning brain box is what does them in.

Why can't we crush their head in a log splitter or fire them out of a cannon into a wall? Instantaneous bring death, done.

Well, it was supposed to demonstrate how gruesome and dangerous Alternating Current was.  Edison lobbied to have people executed by electrocution called "being Westinghoused".

These.

Obliterating the heart is like pulling the drain plug on a bathtub.  All that blood rushes out incredibly quickly, and that drop in blood pressure causes the person to pass out.  Not that it matters since almost all the blood will be gone from the head just seconds after that, ensuring unconsciousness and subsequently death.

If that's really an issue though, the fatal shot could be fired through the skull.  With the right caliber it could penetrate the skull but not exit, fragmenting and bouncing around inside to destroy the brain rather thoroughly.  Minimally difficult to cover up for an open casket funeral, but certain to ensure death.  Honestly if I were going to pick a way to die that would be high on the list.  Death by snu snu of course would place higher.

What the real issue is: death row inmates spend 20-30 years on death row and get 73,000 appeals(I know, exaggeration).

Now, I'm not saying we should string 'em up on the most convieniently placed cottonwood tree as they leave the sentencing hearing. But, maybe we can find a happy medium? Maybe, if the accused crime is heinous and/or a bunch of people witness it; we can install a fast check out(see what I did there)?

/ Maybe for crimes like kiddie diddling, rape and murder; where the guilt of the accused is beyond any doubt?

And the GOP continues its resolute march back into the 19th century.  Personally, I applaud this, as the more they embrace the past, the less relevant they will appear to voters who actually reside in this millennium.
Their constituency seems to be the Boko Haram -- but I suppose there will always be a few of those around.

/in Texas, at least

How about really ole timey stuff like the iron maden,  and the rack,  or whatever it's called whenever you tie the guy to two horses and they rip him apart.

Oh and my favorite,  which I think should be reserved for sex crimes,  the Pear of Anguish.

The golden bull / calf the romans used would be real neato too.


/Oh I forgot to mention,  Fark party at my house next weekend,  you're all coming right?

Hell yeah! Old school! I like. Can't beat the classics. Get rid of that sissy lethal injection crap. Side note: why do they bother sterilizing the needles during lethal injections? Never got that.

It matters not if they are dead or alive unless they are whole. The brain's user's first concern is that it is in all in one place to work in "tip-top" shape.

They could just strap a grenade to the prisoner and pull the pin.  Won't be any debate over time of death.

Cleanup might be a little messy, though.  So they could eliminate the mess by placing the prisoner and grenade in a pre-dug grave, cover with dirt, tamp down and then pull the pin.

Some might worry about asphyxiation, though.  So they can strap an O2 mask on the prisoner, place said prisoner and grenade in a pre-dug grave, cover with dirt, tamp down and then pull the pin.  Easy peasy.

If i had to choose, I'd want a bottle of JD and a lethal dose of heroin once I hit the bottom of that bottle.

Why not let the prisoner pick their own way to go?

Sure, as long as we amend the law to make convictions of public officials for ANY felony a capital offense.

Those are medical professionals. They have strict rules and procedures to follow for EVERY injection. Doesn't matter what it's for, it's a damn good habit.

An NKVD officer by the name of Vasily Blokhin (sp?) executed 7,000 Poles and Soviet officers in a month with a .25 ACP to the brain stem. Easy peasy.

Three anthropologists are taken captive by a cruel and remote tribe.
Their chief comes to their hut and informs the anthropologists that they have a choice: death or chi-chi.
The first anthropologist says: "Chi-chi, of course."
There ensues three days of screams, moans, pleadings, whimpers, then silence.
The chief comes to the hut to speak with the second anthropologist. He picks chi-chi, too.
Three more days of shrieks and begging.
The chief comes to the third anthropologist.
"Which do you choose, death or chi-chi?"
"I've heard too much," says the anthropologist. "I'll take death."
"A very wise choice," says the chief, who then adds with a sad smile: "But first, chi-chi."

Hmm makes sense. Just always thought it to be redundant. I mean what are we worried about? Not want the serial murderer rapist to get sick in hell, or wherever?
