Default States considering the firing squad

As stock of lethal injection drugs are drying up some states are considering reviving the use of a firing squad..your reaction.

Some states look at reviving firing squads amid shortage of execution drugs - U.S. News

P.S. That Ohio family is suing because their boy "suffered" during his 25 minute execution recently..gee I am really cryin' for you all. What about that pregnant newlywed who he raped and murdered. To me he didn't sufferer long enough and I hope he rots in hell.

I read that story too. Really difficult to have any sympathy for the murderer who suffered that 25 minutes. The husband of the murdered woman committed suicide. So the murderer actually had a hand in three deaths. The woman, the unborn child and the husband. I think in this case the murderer should have suffered at least an hour or two.

In this case a firing squad would have been too humane.

I'm my opinion death sentence is not supposed to be fun.... an eye for an eye. You rape and kill someone, you get raped and killed the same way.......justice served in my eyes, hanous crimes make me sick......Concealed 27

Sounds like some of us in here would be willing to "donate" some of their ammo to the firing squad..I certainly would if it would quicken the garbage on death row.

Here's a question that may go in to this thread. Why are execution dates set so far in to the future? If firing squad is revived can we just take em to the back of the prison and line em up?

"Next"

BOOM

"Next"

BOOM

"Next"

I think Gary Gilmore was the last shot. Texas did it right.
