  • Capital punishment is the ultimate deterrent because we are creatures that learn by pain down to our core. For the most cruel of crimes, a bolt pistol should be used that is within a box/pillow for the prisoners to lay on. The piston fired out using air and goes back in the pillow, leaving room for blood to drain into the box/pillow. Quick, little mess, same as we treat our animals. (No country for old men has the bad guy use the same device). Your welcome. 😇

  • So, for anyone wondering, crucifixion is one of the most painful, horrible ways to die. Your wrists and feet have 3 massive nails repeatedly shoved through them, and when you're raised, you sag, and you're pulling on the nails with the weight of your body, and as you lose blood, as you are using energy that is literally leaking out of you, breathing becomes harder, and your shoulders have been squeezing your windpipe this entire time. Eventually, you die from suffocation, blood loss, and fatigue. It's a long fucking process, and you will spend the last hours of your life in the most pain you've ever experienced.

  • When France finally declared Capital Punishment illegal in 1981 (having last executed someone using the Guillotine in 1977), the Justice Secretary in the Mitterrand administration Robert Badinter made what I think is the most well formulated and succinct argument against it in one sentence, roughly translated he said; ''We repudiate the institution of Capital Punishment because it expresses a fundamentally totalitarian relationship between the Citizen and the State". It's curious to me that the United States, admirably skeptical of the role of the State in the lives of its Citizens, are so congenial to the concept of the State (often arbitrarily) deciding whether certain Citizens live or die.

  • So far as I know, Judge Kozinski is not in favour of the death penalty, but he believes, if you are going to execute people, you should use one of those quick but brutal methods instead of lethal injection. Lethal injection is slow and potentially very painful, but we can lie to ourselves that it isn't barbaric because it looks peaceful. You have to admit, that's a strong argument. Of course, the guillotine was invented to be more humane than other execution methods at the time. It's almost as though there is no humane way to take another person's life.

  • Potassium chloride is usually used to stop the heart. Potassium chloride definitely feels like getting fire poured right into your veins as anyone who's needed to undergo a potassium drip would know. Now image have like five times the amount of potassium being injected into you at once. When getting a drip you usually only get 10-20meq per hour because it's so painful/too much at once will stop your heart. AND they still need to either dilude the potassium with a saline drip or give pain meds in order to have the person undergoing the drip not feel like fire is injected into their veins. I've had multiple potassium drips for chronic hypokalemia and if those little things are so painful I can't imagine how it must feel to be given enough to stop your heart.

  • Genuinely curious what people think of these alternatives: 1. Victim wears an opaque helmet with 6 evenly spaced holes into which guns are inserted. They’re first sedated, then shot simultaneously by all 6 guns resulting in a quick death. 2. Victim is sedated and placed on a platform between a large POWERFUL hydraulic machine. The machine squishes the victim instantaneously into a 1mm thick pulp, resulting in a messy but instantaneous death.

  • It's sad that one of the reasons that death penalty is wrong is that it is very expensive, but it's expensive because humanitarians in the US want the death to be humane (or look like it is) but sadly in Iran, it's not that expensive because we hang the criminals:/ (and other reasons that the government keeps giving to support why it should be in our fu**ed up system

  • I don't understand how John Oliver can be so absolutely against the death penalty because of the pain it causes and the moral erroneousness of a society that picks who gets to live, and yet he is still so blindly supports abortion which is all of this and worse. Fact: both are wrong. We should do everything to support the life of the mother and child (especially if she doesn't think she take good care of the child or carry to term). We should do everything to support the healthy reeducation of people who have done bad things, or at the very least keep them locked up and away harming others. At the end of the day, it's not ours to say who lives and dies

  • I would prefer not to have a death penalty at all-and up here in Canada, we don't-but if, for some reason, we do, we should at least consider a more efficient and reliable method: a single gunshot to the head at or near point-blank range with a high-calibre, anti-materiel rifle. It would be rather messy and very unpleasant to watch, but it would be much more humane than being made to die a very slow, painful death by a combination of asphyxiation and potassium-chloride-induced heart failure, and would serve as a poignant reminder to all who are present that their morals are not significantly better than that of the person whose head was just blasted wide open.

He was so fat, that the strap that tied his arm to the bed served as a tourniquet, so when he was injected, the drugs didn’t leave his arm. He gets off the gurney, and starts talking trash to the authorities. It went like “Yeah! Y’all MF can’t kill me! Y’all can’t kill me! Y’all can suck my... (dies)”...
