    As long as the convicted killer is executed, I couldn't care less how it's done. I say make all methods legal and let the killer choose their own killing. Better yet would be to kill them in exactly the same way that they killed their victim(s).

    Three people push a button. Only one of them pushes the button that releases the poison. Same principle as the one rifle with a blank round.

If you don't think one bullet is enough then just do a double tap to the head. No one will live through that.
    I think the idea is that no one knows which bullet killed. Then no one gets blamed or feels too much guilt.

    The barbarism of the convicted is not and should not be relevant to the government's choice of execution method. In fact it is important that as a culture if we choose to kill people that it is done as justice and not revenge.

    I think the victim or their families.should pick.the punishment and the jury can decide.if.its appropriate.

    Do something REALLY heinous and you could get drawn and quartered, for example.

    Why not just bring back guillotines instead? Guaranteed death.

    My experience leads me to believe that most people don't make a distinction between these two things.
