    I agree, but we should prioritize. Capital punishment should be abolished as soon as we've eliminated murder from society.

    I will not respond to the poll as the choices seem too flippant. But, to answer the question "was this actually "Botched" in reference to the execution? The answer is yes.

    Or you could always just insert a few IVs and drain all their blood out. You could even use the blood for donations at that point (unless the anesthesia means it can't be used).

    A guillotine would certainly work though.

    Re: was this actually "Botched"?

    The fact that it was botched matters, we have a Constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment and the courts have found some methods of execution to be cruel.

    That said I have no sympathy for this subhuman. I save my sympathy for his victim and her family and for the innocent people on death row - approx 3% given stats I recently saw - which is why I can't ever support the death penalty much as it may be deserved in some cases.

    Please cite the "Humane Execution" clause for me.

    You want a humane execution? Fine. Arrange to have an executioner sneaK up behind the condemned murderer on an unannounced day and quickly fire a havy gauge shotgun into the back of the killer's head.

    I can't think of a more humane execution. Not only will the murderer never know what hit him, he'll never kniow in this life that he was hit. His skull and the brain it contains will disintegrate faster than nerve impulses could carry any awareness.

    Problem solved. Or is it?

    Because if you object to this completely painless method, you're not objecting out of humanitarian concerns for the condemned, but from your squeamishness and offended sense of aesthetics

    I thought so, I'm glad you agree. Why indeed would anyone place the welfare of murderers before their victims?

    Pretty sure that was sarcasm
