Skip to comments.Gunshot, not Lethal Injections, Is Most Humane

Capital punishment in the US needs to be debated on its own merits and may eventually go the way of Canada. Until then, a humane society needs to choose the most humane method of employing it
Lethal injection executions, back in the news, just arent working. For a variety of reasons. While they are bloodless (so is strangulation, starvation, and being broken on the wheel), it appears they often are not painless. They most certainly are not quick, sometimes taking hours. They arguably violate the Hippocratic Oath in having a doctor perform them, yet you hardly want an amateur to perform them. And drug companies dont want their products associated with causing death. Go figure!
I have a whole bunch of .22 lr I will gladly donate, free of charge.
give them a massive heroin overdose-
They will probably willingly take it themselves
and its much better than they deserve.
Who really knows if even the guillotine is painless?
Injections are given for the benefit of the onlookers, who can delude themselves into thinking that the condemned man doesn’t suffer. They don’t like looking at blood either.
Stop the delusions. The firing squad is pretty damned efficient. Works every time. So there’s a big bang or two!
Actually, smothering them with nitrogen is the most humane. They will never know they are asphyxiating.
I'm not arguing against firing squad either, except likely the shot could be placed other than on the heart.
Inert gas asphyxiation...
Fainting, then the systems shut down due to lack of oxygen.
Why don’t we slowly pull them apart with giant forceps? Seems OK for the innocent unborn, so why not for the adjudged guilty murderer? I’m sure we could get “Dr.” Kermit Gosnell outta stir to be high executioner. He has lots of experience in such procedures.
Giant multi-ton flat rocks ... drop it, clean up any spatter that oozes out and use masonry glue to attach a “headstone”.
Shouldn’t even have to care one jot.
Wow - really ? Seems that most drug commercials I see these days on TV tell me I'll have thoughts of suicide if I use their product.......
100% pure dry nitrogen, inhaled, is absolutely lethal. It’s also dirt cheap and non-toxic.
Death by Beiber
In an acoustic echo room play Justin Bieber music loud enough to kill.
The condemned would beg to be impaled, instead ...
What about that thing from No Country for Old Men? The captive bolt pistol or cattle gun or whatever it is. Seems quick and permanent.
Oh, and this reply is not for the non-existent sean_anthony. It’s for the real FReepers that are reading this thread.
Pneumatic bolt, like cattle
Well, there's never been a single complaint...
