Truth is the guillotine is most effective method of executing people. Unlike most other methods, its swift and its idiot proof. The only problem with it is that its gruesome, which goes to Oliver's point that the supposed humane ways of executing individuals are really about not subjecting the rest of us to the horror of it all.

If the death penalty is going to be in place, why not just make a mechanical firing squad? One machine shoots them in the brain stem (i think its called that) to stop pain as soon as it starts, and they're dead almost instantly.

Well, dont come to America and kill a bunch of people and no fire will be put into your veins. There are a few killers that deserved to have their ballz sawed off and pushed in front of a flaming subway train. Ted Bundy and Jimmy Lee Gray are examples. To the woodchipper they go

death penalty for the most dangerous crimes like pedophilia and others i cant even think of those people never change so instead of wasting space kill those ones oh my gosh i think im a psycho cause i thought up a penalty for crowd execution where the most severe crime that the criminal is not remorsful about like rape murder or anything else where you let the inmates be the executioners

Im not from the USA. Why dont they just offer a doctor this position with maybe a little bit more money. Im working as a paramedic. Lethal injection can be completely painless and peaceful. It is kinda easy, I dont get how they can fail this at all. As if there is no doctor/medical personell that is willing to help for money.

Judge a civilization by how it treats its criminals, because when it comes down to it, the state can make anyone a criminal. Also, prison is horrible. If some monstrous serial killer came along, I’d want them to rot in jail, not leave life peacefully.

I think only certain crimes deserve the death penalty like for example kidnapping children and doing what you want with them, crimes such as that and it is proven without a shadow of a doubt that they did that a horrible crime. And wouldn’t a gunshot to the head be the most humane way because it the chances of them still being alive or suffering after is lower than lethal injection.

Correct that midazolam is not a pain medication, but neither was sodium thiopental. Neither drug is an analgesic. Also, midazolam can be a general anesthetic at the correct dose, just as sodium thiopental can be a sedative at a sufficiently low dose.

Administering lethal injection is a moral issue only if you are one of the idiots who think euthanasia should be illegal.
Strazdas 23 дня назад
Death penalty isnt a moral issue, its an economic one. There are certain criminals that, if ever released, will just keep commiting terrible crimes. This means we end up housing them for decades, paying for them more than most honest working americans make. Removal of such people is simply the most economic solution on unreformable criminals. The system however has been bloated and made expensive with intention of removing it due ot it beign expensive. This all was done before we even knew what DNA evidence was. We could have a much better process that removes the chance of innocent being sentenced and yet would also prevent prisoners for 60 years. But moral fuckery stands in the way as usual. Hippocratis actually did say do harm if its for benefit of the patient. The modernized oat is very different than the original one specifically to include chstian religiuos morality in it.

Feels as though John has it backwards in the first two minutes talking about why he doesn't believe in the death penalty. The pragmatic reasoning comes before the moral reasoning not the other way around. No sense in arguing about if the death penalty is right or wrong if it won't be implemented regardless for practical reasons.

Firing squad would be better, 100%. Blindfolded, no warning, takes a couple seconds or maybe a few at most. Sitting down and receiving a shot (as in injection, not gunshot lol) you know is going to kill you--and that there's a good chance it will be horrifically painful--is beyond terrifying.

Liberal me: We should replace lethal injections with retirement to a tropical island with farming equipment so no one will ever have to see these assholes again. Conservative me: Why not just shoot them in the back of the head? Definately kills fast and it is big, loud, and scary to everyone else. The death penalty most exists out of the deterrent superstition. Lets make it scary yet painless

For particularly heinous crimes, life in prison and made to do labor; failure to comply = firing squad Labor need not be grueling or punishing; in fact, it shouldn't be. There is no need to be cruel, just productive. 60 hours a week on a low-skill assembly line perhaps. And it solves the "why are we hosuing/feeding this felon for life" problem, because now he is paying his way via the labor.

I'm real sorry people but there are people that deserve to be put to death. In my world it would be used sparingly and only in cases where guilt is absolutely beyond a shadow of a doubt but i do believe warehousing the most ultra violent criminals and letting them wither on the vine is a waste of money...money that could be better spent on social programs to perhaps head off young people from going down the path that leads them to a death chamber.

Jfc, if states are going to legally kill a convict as the most extreme form of punishment for an extreme infraction of the law, in the name of justice, then they better damned be sure every component and stage of the execution process is executed legally. Pardon the choice of verb, there.

I’ve read that the electric chair is actually a more painless way to go then lethal injection. It apparently knocks you out cold the instant the electricity turns on instead of lethal injection where there’s a possibility you get to experience the sensation of having fire injected into your veins. But then again as that 80s guy said the electric chair is definitely “gross” for the viewers so probably best we just do away with both and ban the death penalty.

It would be cheaper "AND" more humane just to shoot them in the head, compared to electrocution or lethal injection. If I were to be killed, I would want a bullet to the head, the reason we don't do it is that it "looks" worse than just injecting them with drugs. Edit: you could also just smash the head with a large steel block, I assure you they will die immediately, and painlessly because you can't feel pain without an intact brain.

I think the biggest reason against headshot execution is that there's no way to 'proceduralize' a gunshot to the head, or to recreate something like that in a completely controlled environment. I can't really think of a better way to phrase that, but hopefully you get what I mean.. It's a method with a very unprofessional, even intimate, feel to it-- not to mention it's /a lot/ more susceptible to human error for obvious reasons. There's also the issue of the mental health of the people who have to pull the trigger. As much as I love the idea and really wish it could be implemented, it's just a very messy grey area wrapped up in all sorts of emotional taboo

I cannot inderstand how you can be pro abortion and against death penalty, i mean 4% of them are innocent, true ... and 96% and convicted murderes or dangerous criminals, and it is not cheaper to keep a covicted alive in jail for 30-50 years, that data makes no sense at all, all the costs in jail infrastructure and personel are counted? Or just food and water for a ''person'' who if it got the chance would kill a 5 year child for some mental disturbance that makes it have a sadistic and agressive behaviour? Seriously one thing is to be liberal, other is talking bullshit, ask the good people who lost their sons, mothers or fathers to criminals what they thing about it

The most humane death penalty is anesthesia. Supply enough anesthesia so the prisoner passes out then keep applying it until their heart stops. Humane, works without torturing the convicted and is lethal. However no anesthesiologist would do that. For obvious reasons.

Am I missing something here? I'm opposed to the death penalty for any number of reasons, but if you're gonna do it at all, what the hell is wrong with a massive opiate overdose? It's painless, it's effective, and it's cheap. I know John mentioned in incident where an opiate overdose resulted in a two-hour gasping-for-breath demise. *That* is an example of an attempted lethal overdose that they just flat-out *botched*.

There are so many drugs that could be used to make it less painful, but they are using drugs that were developed in the 1950's. I had spinal surgery a couple of years ago and I was kept blissfully unaware for 7 hours while a doctor scraped excess bone out of my spinal canal that was pressing on the cord. If they can do that, they can make the injection painless. The problem is only an anesthesiologist or an anesthetist can properly administer some of them. But if you started off with about 25mg of versed, followed by 500 mcg of fentanyl, then propofol, then the pancuronium and potassium chloride I guarantee the victim would feel no pain. They could also use metaxital (brevital.) It is a faster acting barbiturate than thiopental but 100mg will render a person unconscious for 5-10 minutes. So there are a number of options. Other things that could be used include a nitrous oxide/halothane gas mixture. But many of these drugs require some medical training to administer. Or we could just not do it at all and let the person live out the rest of his life in prison.

Here's a solution. Just have the death row inmate sent to Russia, have him be very critical of Vladamir Putin in the form of open protests or blog posts, and then just let nature take its course. I'd suggest criticizing the Saudi Arabian regime too, but we all know that would be more horrifying because the murder would likely involve a bone saw.
