Believe me, I feel zero sympathy for the guy either. Not endorsing revenge killing doesn't mean you have sympathies for someone who did something as heinous as that guy did.

I agree with SteelerEmpire (again), I always thought that letting them rot in jail was a more fit punishment. When we put down our dog, it was because we loved her and couldn't stand to see her suffer anymore. I would have liked to see this guy suffer for decades until his last gasp of air.

Bring back the firing squads and the 5 gun salute!





Some states look at reviving firing squads amid shortage of execution drugs

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2014...&lite=obinsite

Quote:
A shortage of a drug commonly used in executions has prompted lawmakers in at least two states to call for the return of firing squads.

Missouri state Rep. Rick Brattin, a Republican representing Harrisonville, introduced legislation Friday (.pdf) that would add five-person firing squads as an alternative to the state's current method of capital punishment, lethal injection.

Brattin cited the prolonged death Thursday of Dennis McGuire in Ohio as evidence that alternative methods were needed after manufacturers of pentobarbitol, the drug most commonly used in lethal injections, began withdrawing it from use in executions on ethical grounds.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advertise | AdChoicesIt took almost 25 minutes for McGuire, who was executed for raping and murdering a 22-year-old pregnant newlywed, to die gasping and choking Thursday from a new combination of drugs that had never before been used in a U.S. execution. McGuire's family said Friday it intends to sue Ohio prison officials for what they called McGuire's "torture."

Missouri also allows execution by lethal gas, but its gas chamber hasn't been functional since 1965. With the state's next execution scheduled for Jan. 29, "we've been having all of these troubles getting the drugs to administer the lethal injection," Brattin told the statewide radio network Missourinet on Friday.

"I was just looking at a second option, something we could do if we had to utilize the death penalty and we could not administer the lethal injection," Brattin said.

Besides being "quick and something we could do at a moment's notice," he said, an execution by firing squad would be more humane than McGuire's ordeal.


Firing squads have all but disappeared from the U.S. While Oklahoma law provides for them if lethal injection is ever ruled unconstitutional, only Utah actually continues to use them, and then only for inmates convicted before 2004 as it seeks to phase them out. But the shortage of pentobarbitol has some lawmakers reconsidering.

State Sen. Bruce Burns filed a similar bill (.pdf) Monday in Wyoming, saying the state would have to do something soon before it runs out of approved drugs for lethal injections.

"One of the reasons I chose firing squad, as opposed to any other form of execution, is because frankly, it's one of the cheapest for the state," Burns, a Republican from Sheridan County, told The Associated Press this week.

bring back old sparky !!!
revive the term "ride the lightning"

"Ride The Lightning"

Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ain't right
There is someone else controlling me
Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me
Who made you God to say
"I'll take your life from you!"

[chorus:]
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flames

Wait for the sign
To flick the switch of death
It's the beginning of the end
Sweat, chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness my only friend
My fingers grip with fear
What I am doing here?

[chorus:]

Someone help me
Oh please God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die
Time moving slowly
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see
How true is this?
Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be
Wakened by the horrid scream
Freed from the frightening dream

[chorus:]

he deserved to suffer longer than that. sorry i'll never feel bad for a murderer especially one that killed a pregnant mother

of course children shouldn't be allowed to see something like that. isn't that the same reason why some hospitals don't let young minors into the ICU?
