    Utah to allow firing squads for executions

    Utah to allow firing squads for executions - CNN.com

    Lethal injection remains the primary method for carrying out executions in the state, Gov. Gary R. Herbert said in a statement. A firing squad would only be used in the event the necessary drugs cannot be obtained.

    "Those who voiced opposition to this bill are primarily arguing against capital punishment in general and that decision has already been made in our state," said Marty Carpenter, a spokesman for Herbert.

    Why not use the Chinese method- Shot to the back of the head, or a 22 cal, thru the ear canal, bullet bounces around the skull scrambles the brain.

    Heart shot is not an immediate killer. Takes a few seconds. Head shot is faster. I say let the suffer their last few seconds on earth.

    So? Most people are not. Have someone kill your wife or children, then see if your tune changes on that.

    Seems to be some truth to that, but still not sure the emotional response justifies the practice...

    And that is why the death penalty is a bad idea, because however you put it, it is just simply revenge and revenge is never a good idea. You want justice to be impersonal and objective. And I think life in jail is just as effective and just as much punishment as the death penalty (if not worse for the offender).
