Injection Vs Firing Squad?

Today in the news:

"AP - A death row inmate who had used a gun to fatally shoot two men suffered the same fate Friday morning as he was executed by a team of marksmen — the first time Utah used the firing squad to carry out a death sentence in 14 years."

  • My mouth dropped when I heard this last night on the news. I'm not officially sure how I feel about the shooting aspect of it. They did say that 1 of the shooters guns will be blank so that none of them will know for sure if they shot him. They'll always wonder if there's was the blank. I guess for the shooter's that alright but I could never do that job. I also think it's ridiculous that he got to CHOOSE how he dies. I think he should have got the OPPOSITE of what he chose.

  • it doesnt bother me..however, i don't like that he got to make the decision of his death. I do like the idea though that he was put to death the same way he put others to death

  • When one is found guilty of committing a heinous crime (such as this one), I agree with the practice of "an eye for an eye" punishment. Besides, didn't this criminal REQUEST to be executed by firing squad?

  • I think thats a good idea shay, haha. This country has gone to shit with punishment for crimes. Criminals have it made, they get a roof, food, and clothes, and education, and even more with our tax money. Thats not punishment.

  • If I had to choose between the two methods of death, I would choose the firing squad.

    Personal fear levels make me much less scared bleeding than I am of the lung asphyxiation that happens with the lethal injection.

    Nah...PMITA prison with Bubba at the "helm" daily for about 5 or so years, would be sufficient!!! Kind of like what will happen to Joran Van Der Sloot once he hits the genral population--I give him an afternoon before he's dead.

  • Live by the gun, die by the gun...I think that should apply in all circumstances of murderers. However you kill someone, that is how you should be put to death.
