    This seems fine with me. Maybe a bullet to the head just to make sure too.

    I read somewhere that they only used 100 mg of the first drug while Florida use 300 or 500 mg.

    As to the methods, lethal injection is all but standard at this point. UT recently got rid of firing squad as an option, but a handful on death row are being grandfathered in on that. NH and WA still permit execution by hanging in limited circumstances. VA just executed by electrocution in 2013. But lethal injection is really the big majority.

    Capital punishment itself is legal in 32 states right now, not including Iowa, as well as through the federal government (blue = death penalty is banned, red = permitted):

    In Ancient Rome, Vestal Virgins who had sex with someone were forced into an underground cave-like structure that had a bed, a loaf of bread and some water. And then never let out. It was 100% effective.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I've never really understood killing someone as a punishment. I'm pretty sure its commonplace for everybody to die at some point in their life. Therefore we are all subject to capitol punishment, just at different points.

    I think life in prison is a much more deserving sentence because to me its 100 times worse.

    prison is 100x times worse than dying?

    I am conflicted on capital punishment .... but to me any day alive is better than being dead.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I used to sway back and forth when it comes to the death penalty. Then when you read about the crimes some of these monsters have committed I would offer to flip the switch on their execution.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I support expanding the death penalty to lesser crimes. You molest a kid? You die. Rape? You dead.

    I would rather be dead than live with say murdering 5 people. Maybe thats just because I realize murder is bad, but I would definitely say dying is better in the cases where we deem capital punishment a valid punishment.

    I used to be for the death penalty but now I don't support it. Life is probably much worse for them in jail then dying.

    Re: Botched execution in Oklahoma

    I wish they would just kill them the same way the person they killed. Just do it by suprise. One day just walk in the cell and shoot them when they were not expecting it. Like in this guys case. Shoot him in the leg. Then go bury him in the ground while he is squirming. Just so he knows what he did to the other person and how it felt.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
