    At least someone admits that it was cruel and unusual. But hey lets forget the Constitution, right?

    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    The death penalty does not provide the aggregate society with any additional benefit. There is no real reason to keep it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    They have no definitive evidence that the person ever regained consciousness. Given the dose of anesthesia administered, regaining consciousness isn't going to happen.

    Not a whole lot different than the people who tried to claim Terry Schiavo was conscious because she sat up in bed... even though she was clinically brain dead.

    We have several eyewitness accounts and all you have backing up your account is "well he coulda of been".

    Sure you do, several. And should their accounts ever make it into a courtroom as evidence they will get decimated because no definitive determination of consciousness can be made based on observations of convulsive movements. An anesthesiologist would have a field day with this.

    We as a society are better than this. Public opinion is shifting. America is striving to be a better nation, not like the third world countries that still practice government executions.

    They do it intentionally, so there's no violation of the Constitution.

    Mexico banned the death penalty. Look at their crime rate.
