I'm a bit behind atm, who's Utah and what were his other choices?

I think Capital Punishment is wrong in general...

Well, as long as he chose it, I don't really care. It's pretty quick and painless assuming they don't miss. What did he do?

Anything like this?


Then it's awesome.

It shouldn't be the standard method, but if it's an option and the guy chooses it then I have no problem with it.


Well, no problem besides the fact that I don't really agree with the death penalty.

Id chose that over the chair or lethal injection any day, hes a lucky guy comparatively.

I feel bad for the people who have to shoot him.



They use 5 guns and 4 real bullets, so they never know for sure if they shot them or not.

He'll die before he hears the gunshots.

The death penalty isn't really a punishment for the person being executed as it doesn't allow them time to suffer for their crimes, the only people you're hurting are their relatives. Being allowed to choose the way in which you're punished is even more ridiculous

As executions go though, death by firing squad is probably the method with the fewest potential complications so it makes perfect sense

Death to all butt metal.

I'd take that instead of the chair or lethal injection.

Also, I think calling death penalty "capitol punishment" is like some sort of subconscious propaganda in favor of it because the term is so neutral. Execution is more fitting IMO.

It's still pretty bad to have to think about it. But since it's in Utah...

Well if you survive you get to live, so there's that.

I'd still prefer something less traumatic for myself and all involved.
maybe if you had a
revolver
you'd
suck less

I think thats pretty bad ass. What would be sick is if there was a form of capital punishment that involved fighting a bear and if you triumph over the animal you are waved of your punishment...

In regards to the 'i feel sorry for the people who fire the guns' point that has cropped up... Surely you can opt out of being a member of the firing squad? Im assuming those who are in the firing squad are keen to kill this man for whatever reason.
#31
Quote by Dirge Humani
I really hope that people would not be allowed to volunteer to kill a man.

So, ordering some unwilling people to shoot a helpless man tied to a chair is better?

I think that's better then forcing somebody to do it.

It's not better. IMO both are pretty bad.

Why is he being executed after 20 years? Seems a bit unfair that hes served his time and now he has to die, surely they should have killed him 20 years ago.

You get a chance to appeal a death sentence.

I'd prefer that to lethal injection or the electric chair. Seems the fastest and least painful.

But I'm really against capital punishment anyways.

i beg to differ, i think getting shot by like 12 guys with rifles will kill you faster than electric current or a toxic substance

There are only 5 shooters with only 4 bullets.

You don't feel anything with lethal injection. I'd rather go to sleep and not wake up than be shot 4 times.

That all depends how skilled the person cannulating you is.
