    read where a million stray dogs a year are euthanized. I feel worse for every single one them more than I do for this criminal's pain.

    There is a reason this person was on death row, and sorry but no, I don't feel for him one bit.
    I believe our desire to ensure that inmates receive humane and quick deaths stems from our awareness that some of these people being put to death where wrongly accused. If there are going to continue to be instances, no matter how rare, where the innocent are put to death - at least make it quick. So the guilt has reason when we see a botched execution.

    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Couldn't happen to a nicer murderer.

    It does serve a benefit, just not an aggregate benefit.
    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.

    What benefit? Some limited "benefit" that could be realized in greater force by reforming general jailing policies and reducing prison enacting laws? Because here we sit, and you're trying to convince me, or state, that killing is apparently the only solution. I don't 100% buy that killing, evoking a broken and expensive and dangerous system, is the only solution. You have any argument or proof that it is the only solution?

    Benefit to the family, to gain closure. Benefit to society knowing that heinous illegal acts of wanton violence exact the ultimate price. Benefit that laws are passed and followed, including execution. A benefit to society that assures the populace that the most dire crimes against humanity carry an equally costly price. I never claimed it's the only solution nor am I arguing it's the only solution (you brought that up), but it is a solution. Since there is a benefit, just not an aggregate benefit, and it is a solution albeit not the ONLY solution, it does seem effective. Therefore, it seems tweaking the actual act of execution itself, and perhaps cutting the cost and time required to get to that final act are worth the effort.

    Those are taken care of with prison at base. Revenge is not part of justice. So what benefit?
