    Botched execution in Oklahoma

    Have you heard about this? I guess it was a disaster.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I'm confused. Dozens (probably more) people die every week from drug overdoses and we cannot figure you how to do it effectively?

    It is strange to me why they can't come up with a drug cocktail that is quick and effective and leaves little doubt that it will work.

    Doesn't bother me one bit. They deserve to suffer as much or more than their victims and the families of their victims.

    I was going to say..

    who was convicted in 2000 of first-degree murder, rape, kidnapping and robbery.
    I'm not for torture or vigilante justice or anything. But, ehhh...

    I do feel bad for those who had to witness that, however.

    I support the death penalty and if the person being executed suffers, oh well.

    That being said, I still believe the government has to take the high road and make it as easy a death as possible. The purpose it's to get the person off the earth so no one else can be harmed by them. Learn from this and improve future executions so they can be more efficient.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I always thought the vicitims family should decide the excecution style of the convicted murderer. Anything goes, so if you want a real live "Saw" scene, more power to you. If you want a simple borrowing drug over-dose, fine.

    Firing squad imo. 6 or 7 shots to the dome would do it.

    Show a tape of the botched execution to first time offenders. I'd bet it would cut down on the number of repeat offenders.

    I think capital punishment as a determent is generally not as effective as people think from what I've seen in a few articles.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    The way the death penalty is implemented in this country, it costs more than life in prison, and there has been no data to show that it is an effective crime deterrent. Given that, I'm not really sure what the point of it is.

    Also, add me to the list of people that is baffled that we can't come up with a drug or drugs to do this job well. How hard is it to give them something to put them under, and then give something to stop the heart?
