    Those 2 people actually do matter still. We can't discount their existences, or the fact that someone else ended their lives. They really had no justice.

    If you're asking me do I think experimental execution drugs should be the norm, the answer is absolutely not. I believe in the death penalty in a lot of situations (heinous crime, proven guilt, etc.) but I also support a method that would provide a quick death. I'm not a vigilante and think the death is good enough. I have no desire for cruelty.

    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    "Botched"? Maybe, maybe not.

    It's a little messy but it's effective and cheap.
    On the news this morning they showed one of the victim's family members saying something very similar. I have to agree.

    I am glad he did not die a quiet peaceful death. Unfortunately he probably did not realize he was squirming like a worm just before you stick a fishing hook in to one. If we are going to kill the killers why should it be "humane". If someone tells you "I am going to blow you brains out" that is a humane death as there is no suffering. As the victims often wait in terror before the killer kills then the killer should experience the same trauma. Waiting a decade or more to execute someone is the stupidest single part of our penal system. How many appeal t do the victims get other than begging for the murderers not to shoot?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Me too. That asshole felt no remorse and neither do I for him. He shot two people in cold blood after what sounds like repeated domestic offenses against her and we are supposed to feel bad his execution was prolonged? As if!


    Arizona execution takes nearly 2 hours - The Washington Post


    He was convicted of fatally shooting Dietz and her father, 55-year-old Gene Dietz, at their auto repair shop in Tucson.

    Wood and Debbie Dietz had a tumultuous relationship during which he repeatedly assaulted her. She tried to end their relationship and got an order of protection against Wood.

    On the day of the shooting, Wood went to the auto shop and waited for Gene Dietz, who disapproved of his daughter’s relationship with Wood, to get off the phone. Once the father hung up, Wood pulled out a revolver, shot him in the chest and then smiled.

    Wood then turned his attention toward Debbie Dietz, who was trying to telephone for help. Wood grabbed her by the neck and put his gun to her chest. She pleaded with him to spare her life. An employee heard Wood say, “I told you I was going to do it. I have to kill you.” He then called her an expletive and fired two shots in her chest.

    I think it reflects on his crimes and the victims who were devastated by his actions. As a society, I'm very glad some of us still value accountability for actions.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    A naive thing to say. "They" haven't killed two innocent people - the criminal did. Why can't you acknowledge that?

    Its interesting the faux care and concern people have over these types of incidents.

    First...its TRULY not as if the opponents of the death penalty give half a damn about the actual individuals. To them, its all about the cause.
    Second...there ARE swift sure fire ways to make sure it happens painlessly. Maybe if people stopped fighting those means, we wouldnt have these problems.
    Third...the body is pretty amazing. The body fights to live. You see a guy knocked out but his body fighting for 2 hours the effects of the injected drugs and think 'cruel and unusual'. Yet, if you go to any terminal care facility you will see bodies hanging onto life for weeks. Researchers believe that in those situations where the body fights on and the patient slips into delirium or experiences the 'death rattle (resp tract secretions) there is, regardless of spasm or uncontrolled muscle response, no indication the patient is experiencing pain.
