    The number of death row inmates who have escaped and killed again, or killed prison guards, is insignificant compared to the number who have been released when it turns out they weren't guilty.

    They are held to the highest standards of the law multiple times. While its possible that someone may be wrongly executed, we dont make laws for the mistake, and we dont disregard the will of the people because YOU have decided its not good enough.

    "McGuire, who was sentenced to die for raping and stabbing a pregnant newlywed to death in 1989, appeared unconscious but gasped repeatedly as he lay on a gurney, his stomach rising and falling and his mouth opening and shutting."

    Im not even necessarily pro death penalty...and its hard for me to give even half a damn whether or not he suffered (although there is no indication he actually did).

    compare the number of those who got out and killed again with those who are really innocent and executed anyway. I dont know but I bet there have been more exectued. Last time someone posted that escape to kill again (or the libs let them out) I asked for a few examples. Seems he never got back to post them all.

    I am against lethal injections. I think hanging is better since the organs can be harvested and used to help others.

    Humm, I dont know about that, I think it might cause so much tissue damage many organs, like the kidneys might be unusable, but I really dont know, interesting thought.

    Its the method of execution least likely to ruin usable organs. Gas chamber, firing squad, Lethal Injection and electrocution all ruin most organs. hanging causes less overall destruction than most of the ways donors die-such as high impact motor vehicle accidents

    The problem with this line of thinking regarding this individual's suffering is precisely in applying the sentiment to the individual. For good or for bad, and because we are a collective society whether we like it or not, the appropriateness of any punishment needs to be thought of in regards to all potential participants, not just the ones we deem particularly unworthy.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I think 25 minutes is too long. Yes, the victims of those who face capital punishment suffered so much more and undeservedly, but execution is about who we are, not who he is.
