    It's very easy indeed, as long as you're not someone who cares more about the very worst of criminals than you do about honest citizens who these criminals may have victimized.

    Does it matter if they suffered? It's execution, their comfort should be the least of our concern. If lethal injection is so iffy why not shoot, hang, shock or go with the old fashioned "off with their head" decapitation? Sentencing serious crimes to death is neither cruel nor unusual from a legal and historical standpoint.

    Indeed, the Constitution clearly contemplates the use of the death penalty (so long as due process is followed).

    Death row is just a money drain.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    I didnt look at it that way.... ok I just did and I still feel the same. Why so many on this forum take the side of the murderer and not the victims family's is disgusting and I guarantee that tune would change if it was their loved one.

    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Agreed. Crap like this makes us no better than the criminals we condemn.

    It's only unusual because they don't do it nearly enough.

    So we should forsake the security of millions on the possibility of innocence of a few?

    Lots of things in life cause pain. Should be ban them also, say like child birth?
