    How did his victim(s) die? Was it quick and painless?

    That doesn't give us the right to commit cruel and unusual punishments on people.

    This kind of **** is awful and no one should stand for it. It doesn't matter what the criminal did, we shouldn't be treating people like this.
    how do you know this mope felt any pain?

    as I said, I am ambivalent about the DP based on my mistrust of government. If the mope was guilty, I really don't care how he is croaked as long as it isn't torture. lets go back to hanging the mopes. or firing squad.

    How do you know he didn't? See, we shouldn't have these questions. Most likely, he did suffer, and it is just plain wrong. The state of Arizona violated the constitution, and they should be ashamed of themselves. It doesn't matter what he did, it does however matter what we do, and killing people with untested drugs is just wrong.

    I really can't decide if his angst ridden, hand ringing heart break over murderers (and not just murderers, but capital murderers) is really, really funny or some sort of sad commentary where our values are.

    And having to believe that their crimes and victims don't matter is why I could never be convinced to oppose the death penalty.

    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Cruel and unusual punishment for a cruel and unusual Criminal.

    Like I said before, there's this notion that leaving a nicer corpse is more humane and that's just untrue. There's probably nothing quicker than, say, a guillotine.

    It's not heart break over murderers, it's heart break over the fact that we are willing to do this to other people. The fact that they are murderers is irrelevant, it's the fact that we are willing to use an untested method of execution on a prisoner that is chilling. It's the fact that in our constitution we very specifically outlaw cruel and unusual punishments, yet go along with this anyway. Those are the chilling things.
