    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Bull****. It needs to be simplified. I cast and load 9mm at just over 5 cents a round. I'll provide 2 free of charge just to be sure.

    True, which is why the Consitution clearly allows for the deprivation of life upon due process and not does not bow to these silly emotional appeals for compassion for killers.

    It is interesting though, that you believe that emotion should be left out of law making. Would that include things like passing Obamacare because that was one giant emotional appeal. It must have been hell for you.

    I don't see emotional appeals for the killer. But as soon as you speak against the death penalty those for the DP immediately go for the appeal to emotion of "what about the victims of his crime?" While it is the reason why the person is getting executed, it is really a rather large non sequitur that has nothing to do with the conversation about the death penalty... aside from using the government to seek out revenge... another emotional appeal.

    Whats the number of prisoner escapes each year? Some years more, some less, but roughly 2,000 a year. Recent data is hard to find.


    What does "life in prison" really mean? https://fullfact.org/factchecks/murd...e_parole-28691

    “In 2010, 115 people were released from prison having served a life sentence for murder. Of these, six had served fewer than 10 years. In 2011, 160 people were released from prison having served a life sentence for murder. Of these, 26 had served fewer than 10 years.”

    Does The Head Of A Guillotined Individual Remain Briefly Alive?

    The Medical Answer:

    The current medical consensus is that life does survive, for a period of roughly thirteen seconds, varying slightly depending on the victim's build, health and the immediate circumstances of the decapitation. The simple act of removing a head from a body is not what kills the brain, rather, it is the lack of oxygen and other important chemicals provided in the bloodstream. To quote Dr. Ron Wright "The 13 seconds is the amount of high energy phosphates that the cytochromes in the brain have to keep going without new oxygen and glucose" (Cited from urbanlegends.com, no longer extant). The precise post-execution lifespan will depend on how much oxygen, and other chemicals, were in the brain at the point of decapitation; however, eyes could certainly move and blink.

    But it IS an emotional appeal of denouncing the process.

    funny watching the same people who thump their chests in a bravado show of how tough they are with the Kill Kill Kill death penalty stance are more often than not the ones that are also there to thump their chests in a bravado show of how tough they are about how badly they want us to go to war somewhere no matter how little reason they need to go.
