    That's right--because it's about who we are, not who he was.

    From CNN 4 days ago:

    Both the length of time it took for McGuire to die and his gasping are not typical for an execution, said Howard Nearman, an anesthesiologist at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland.

    ...Speaking on behalf of McGuire's legal team, attorney Allen Bohnert called on the governor to impose a moratorium on future executions because of what took place Thursday.

    "At this point, it is entirely premature to consider this execution protocol to be anything other than a failed, agonizing experiment," he said in a statement.

    "The people of the State of Ohio should be appalled at what was done here today in all of our names. Ohio, like its citizens, must follow the law. The state has failed." Controversial execution in Ohio uses new drug combination - CNN.com

    There is going to continue to be debate over what constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment" until a satisfactory new drug combo is figured out.

    **** the drugs...rope is cheap.

    Actually, hanging, if done properly, is about the most painless method there is.

    The point is he was in captivity, no longer a threat to anyone, and what do you want this country to represent? If it's petty vengeance and torture, we're no better than saddam hussein and other dictators who do the same to helpless inmates.

    You clearly don't see that this will only expedite an end to the death penalty altogether. Clearly violates cruel and unusual punishment.

    Its only fairly recently that liberals have decided to decree the death penalty as "cruel and unusual".
