I'm amazed at Subscriber's comments. Not only does he anonymously endorse
cruelty ("anything that works is fine"), but then muddies the issue by
bringing in Italy, as if it is somehow required to satisfy all demands of US
states. His conclusion is an abandonment of facts followed by a conclusion that
is routinely contradicted by courts in those same states. Get a grip.
The legislature needs to reauthorize the firing squad as a backup procedure in
case of drug shortages.Lawyers need to quit playing games over which
lethal concoction can be used. As long as the condemned person dies, anything
that works is fine.If Italy doesn't want to allow drug makers to
sell for execution, then let's just ship all our death row inmates over to Italy
and let them feed, house, lawyer, and support them until they die of natural
causes.American justice rightly has the death penalty for the most
heinous of criminals, and it should be much faster than it is now, (months,
maybe a year or two at most) and used more.
