However, I do believe that the current methods are less of a deterrent. It should be done publicly and be either hanging or firing squad. I think hanging would be more loathsome to most people, but firing squad also has it's uses. Take the kindergarten classes down to the square and let them see that people who kill others die for doing it. If done by firing squad, you can also better teach them firearms safety as they get a very clear picture that shooting someone, unlike in movies or television, kills and those killed don't get a part in a different movie/series next week. Say from Kindergarten through 12th, they go see one every other year, when available. If not very common, then just take the whole school. We would see much better results that way.
