I was reading an article where a inmate who is set to death for the abduction, rape and death of a 15 year old girl was upset about the lethal injection saying it is painfully inhumane. The argument is that each inmate that is put to death by lethal injection takes about 20 minutes and in that time they are in pain and this is inhumane to them.
Reading the comments the relies were saying that inmates who murder or raped their victims wasn't to kind in doing so and what they did was inhumane and cruel and why should the State show mercy on them?
So my question is: should the State show mercy on the inmates that has been found guilty of rape or murder? When they are put on death row and given the lethal injection do they become victims of the State?
