    Utah lawmaker: Bring back firing squad executions

    Utah lawmaker: Bring back firing squad executions

    Well, it might be quicker than lethal injection, but, kind of cruel.

    I don't see how it's any more cruel than lethal injection. Far quicker and humane in my view, if not a bit outdated.

    I wonder if the firing squad asks the convict if he or she has any last requests? like a smoke or something. I wonder if a blindfold is offered, I wonder if the convict has the option of taking it in the back?

    Last request ~ Yes
    Blindfold ~Yes
    In the back ~No

    I think this is a good Idea:
    Very quick and accurate.
    Inexpensive.
    Guaranteed death.

    Firing squads are a waste. It only takes one bullet in the brain pan to kill someone. Why waste all them bullets that a whole squad has? Faster than leathal injection and no chance of the wrong amount or mixture of poison being used and prolonging the death. If you don't think one bullet is enough then just do a double tap to the head. No one will live through that.

    Not all of the rifles have live rounds. Some are blanks. It allows a degree of separation for the shooters who do not know if their shot was the cause of death.

    We have physicians that inject poison into a persons body by the push of a button. Those people know that they are the ones that kill the person. If they can handle it then others can also. Blanks and the extra personnel are still a waste of money and still not needed imo.

    Well you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I have always wondered how the hypocratic oath jibes with lethal injection.

    The AMA doesn't have the authority to prohibit Physicians from participating in capital punishment but believes it is contrary to the Hippocratic Oath. And it is. Remember, they are not executioners, they are supposed to dedicate their life to savings lives, not taking them.

    Those Physicians that choose to have direct participation in executions are a disgrace to their profession.
