    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    In my opinion, this makes the argument FOR the death penalty. The death penalty SHOULD be cruel and unusual. But I'll bet it still wasn't as cruel and unusual as what his victims suffered.

    It's not that they don't matter, however, no one loses their 8th amendment rights, ever.

    Agreed, but no one has established that there was anything cruel and unusual about the execution. The fact that he lived for two hours post injection doesn't meet the threshold.

    Fortunately the founding fathers weren't so stupid as to make the constitution one giant appeal to emotion and instead focused on the rational decision making of law.

    I always wondered if there was a second immediately after decapitation that your mind actually registers what happened.

    I would say it does, rather clearly.

    Consider the heavy overlap between those who most staunchly oppose the death penalty, and those who most staunchly defend abortion. There is a very large portion of our population that values the lives of the very worst criminals more than they value the lives of the most innocent and defenseless children. It is a terrible and tragic commentary on where our values are, as a society.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
