    Hanging has been tried before, we know it works. Stick to the proven method.

    He raped and killed a pregnant woman.

    I'm not going to lose much sleep over getting the recipe precisely correct.

    We find out every day how easily people die, why is it so damn difficult to get the death penalty to work right?

    Anyone who ever thinks about killing another human being needs to be absolutely 100% sure that they are doing the right thing, because that is an action that, right or wrong, you can't take back.

    You could just end the death penalty and you don't have to worry about it.

    It will work, as long as its a megadose. And the guys brain will be BLOCKED from either pain or anxiety.
    Frankly there are worse ways to go, and I wont lose sleep over how he feels about it.

    Id also add that many anti-death penalty advocated have put us in this place by making it difficult to execute patients with other drugs.

    Which is why I have no problem with execution - these pieces of crap don't deserve to live and sometimes I think their method of execution should be in the same manner as they killed their victim.

    Or, utilize the same method of killing that the convicted killer used on their victims.

    I am fine with either way.

    But yeah, to not derail the thread further, Ohio shouldn't use this untested method to kill someone. It just screams of being wrong.
    Humans are not perfect, so that risk will always be there.

    The current judicial system is certainly not perfect, but there are a plethora of checks and balances in capital murder trials.

    The fallout is worth the risk in order to keep psycho killers away from the population.
