Corporal punishment keeps America in the dark ages. It's barbaric and it is murder.

Interesting concept: a drug used for an execution being "unsafe." I've never understood why they don't simply put those being executed under with the same kind of sedatives/gas used in surgery. If you're unconscious you're unconscious - and if they can do surgery on you in that state, they can certainly kill you without pain or discomfort.

The slower the death the better it is for what they did.

Other than being against CP due to innocent people having been close to execution, these states lock people up for a little pot, yet they break all the rules and laws of the DEA. Since when do we experiment with narcotics? That's what Ohio has done when it executed Dennis McGuire the other day. Thankfully MN has the good sense to stay away from the death penalty.

I wonder if his victim got the best way to die. Don't feel sorry for him.

"Corporal punishment keeps America in the dark ages. It's barbaric and it is murder". Abortion makes us a great place to emulate. It isn't barbaric and killing babies isn't murder as long as they aren't born yet.
