Eddie Barzoom: Son of Thunder: Pretty slick move there, anti-DP activists. Harass suppliers until they want to be anonymous, then claim that anonymous transactions are too shady to allow.

I'll pass that advice along to the pro-life activists.

Maybe you can support the government killing people in a way that looks like they are killing people and not performing some sort of medical procedure. Then we would not have to worry about the drugs. Any half a mechanic can build a guillotine.


If they're half a mechanic, something went wrong in the middle of building it.

way south: baka-san: The death penalty serves no purpose other than to allow DA's to say they are "tough of crime"

It serves quite a few purposes in a society when its used properly. It gives you that higher grade of punishment for your most heinous criminals, and can save you all those resources spent on their incarceration. The public has always liked a good hanging, which sates their bloodlust and let's them feel the state has a lock on things.

Problem is we don't do anything properly. We put retards on death row and give life imprisonment to known monsters. We make the checks and balances procedures for the death penalty process far more complicated than we do for other penalties. Then when its finally time to make a kill we even FARK that up.

The DA gets to say they are just as tough on crime when they put pod heads in jail for as long as rapists. They won't be hurting when the executions are gone.


Pod heads?

firefly212: I May Be Crazy But...: Apparently a lot of veterinarians are taught how to use a gun to put down an animal humanely. You know, one bullet that scrambles the brain. Obviously that's not going to come in handy so much for a small animal vet, but apparently it's occasionally a good thing to know when there's a cow suffering seriously. Just do that. Yeah, it's gruesome, but what's that matter to the guy being killed? Nobody is forced to watch.

Maybe the public should be forced to watch what's being done in their name. Maybe if people had to actually see the results of the system the vote for, they would vote for something better.


Ive been watching alot of liveleak videos recently.....

It would probably too difficult to have them ejected from a car doing 80mph.

How about pushing a metal scaffold up against some high tension wires instead?

Maybe let them get caught in a lathe?

Tyrone Slothrop: I say we should bring back public hanging. Let people see what is on the end of their newspaper spoon, as Burroughs said.


Let's go all-in and initiate for-profit public hangings.  Snap the neck, drain the blood and harvest the organs on the spot.  Donate the blood to the local blood bank, and sell the organs to the Chinese.  I just want 2.5% of the profits for the idea.

way south: A problem we've created by allowing a lot of nonsense to go down at trial.
Do it right the first time and an endless appeal system is less necessary.

Will you also pass along the fact that there's a clear difference between not being able to find out what the government is doing and not being able to find out your neighbors private medical information?
