I'm sure they will get a ton of mail from freaks volunteering though. Necro freaks who want to put someones lights out and go home and beat off.

That's the problem with the whole system.
If they are guilty beyond doubt. Not reasonable doubt mind you. Then Hang 'em.

If not then take them off death row and stop wasting millions of dollars to execute someone 30 years later.
What kind of deterent is that?

I am not in favor of the death penalty, but methods such as lethal injection and the electric chair are beyond comprehension to me.

If you're going to kill someone, just shoot them. A firing squad is much faster and much more humane. And what do bullets cost - 5 cents each?

Wha? Last box of rifle shells I bought were about $2.00 per. and that damn Remington Hevi- Shot approaches $3.00 per blast.

I agree with you though--Utah I think was the last of the firing squad states, which did so voluntarily as the SC has never ruled any method of execution was Unconst.

Its called death PENALTY, not death deterrent. Deterrence is just a side effect. The goal is to make sure the ******* in question nevers gets to do it again.

I think the guillotine is still the quickest and surest.

If anyone deserves the death penalty, it's this guy. The story is just so cheap and sordid. Massive evidence fingered him. Tookie Williams deserved being spared more than this guy.

***EDIT*** Whoops! Upon further reading the thread, I see the master of deadly arts, our own MedMech, beat me to it.

I understand the guillotine was developed because the executioner would sometimes aim poorly with the beheading ax, creating a bit of a stir. I forget who, but some famous miscreant received two mis-swung blows, injuring his shoulder and I forget what else, complete with spurting blood and howls of pain. I guess they pardoned the guy cause of it (?!?) and to avoid a repeat of that, enter the guillotine. People raved about it... they lost their heads over it...
