U.S. lawyers cited an expert as saying someone shot by firing squad can remain conscious for 10 seconds and that it would be “severely painful, especially related to shattering of bone and damage to the spinal cord.”
an this is a problem how, what about the pain of the victims? personally i think it should be a slow painful death. make others not want to be in the same situation.
I doubt their “expert” has seen anyone die from lethal injection. It is notorious for not being quick or painless. If the person remains conscious for 10 seconds and feels pain, I would have to suspect there is a liberal lawyer-written procedure that must be followed that forbids targeting the middle of the forehead. Either that or the firing squad is inept.
no we still follow the constitution. but, there has to be someway to make it faster instead of wasting years on death row.
if they are proven without a doubt then take them straight to the firing squad
The problem is that our justice system doesn’t always do a great job of proving things without doubt. There have been a bunch of innocent people jailed and probably more than a few executed who turned out to be innocent.
You can take some steps to make up for the injustice of falsely imprisoning someone. You can’t undo an execution. That’s a significant part of the reason for all the extra time and higher costs for execution.
I personally think life in prison with some hard labor thrown in makes more sense. Makes the truly violent criminals have to spend a much longer time with their rights and freedoms removed and gives them a much longer time to have to worry about what the afterlife has in store for them.
no what I’m saying is criminal caught red handed, admitted to the crime, was seen by people, caught on video. absolutely without a doubt
although I do like your idea. sunrise to sun set, for weeks in all kinds of crappy weather
That’s a pretty thought, but not one I would support. I am absolutely a supporter of capital punishment. But to many innocent people were convicted by a jury beyond a doubt and then later proven innocent. So… not after the conviction.
I would definitely support condensing and expediting the appeals process though.
