  •  So are you suggesting that this is a humane (3+ / 0-)

    method of execution or are you a supporter of the death penalty?

    •  I don't think this is any MORE inhumane, done (5+ / 0-)

      properly, than any of the "traditional" methods. How humane can killing somebody in front of an audience ever be?

      I guess I think that this isn't any worse than methods used previously, so if we're starting with the courts position that those methods were not inhumane, this method probably won't be found inhumane either.

      Personally, it's ALL repellant, but I guess I don't find this any MORE repellant than, say, electrocution.

      And no, I am not a supporter of the death penalty.

      Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord.
