    Sure it does. Go kill someone. See the emotion. I think they deserve, if they choose, the knowledge that the killer is suffering the same fate as their loved one.

    I wonder about the drugs used, Propofol and Exsanguination should do the job
    without much discomfort.

    So freakin' what. Once you give the State the right of execution does it even matter how it happens? I wonder why they'd bother with the drugs anyway- no danger of a shortage of bullets in Utah and you get the added bonus of group participation.

    I don't favor consciously letting anyone suffer, no matter what they have done. My preference is quick and painless. I would use the same method that I would want them to use on me. Shot to the brainstem.

    I favor massive and unending suffering followed by a painful death for those with no value on life and for the suffering they have caused many others. But that's just me.

    The idea that if you take the life of an innocent you have forfeited your own is about as objective and impersonal as it gets. Plus if life in jail were 'worse for the offender' why does every one of them appeal to have their sentence reduced to life in prison? Answer: because the death penalty IS worse for the offender despite your claim to the contrary.
