Firing squad executions

4 states now allow execution by firing squad. LOL!! This should make death a little faster and less painful than electrocution or lethal injection. So long death row suckers!!

You're an idiot

The firing squad is legal in Utah and even then the last time it was used was in 2010

The only reason South Carolina allows it now is because they are short on lethal injection drugs and some people think the electric chair is inhumane.

Personally I think we should bring back hangings and the guillotine lol.... reserve that shit for pedophiles and rapists.

Time to do away with the death penalty...far too expensive and non-productive.

This trolling stuff is fun. Wish I would have discovered it earlier in life.

Bo and Dazz, you're wrong. The death penalty is a necessity. Nothing expensive about a bullet. The expense comes from keeping people on death row for 30 or 40 years. Easy solution. Put them to death after the last appeal. Don't wait a lifetime to execute them.

Swift justice!!

Shaun covers all these arguments thoroughly and concisely.

If you do cheaply, you risk executing hundreds, thousands of innocent people because the expense is caused by the checks and appeals that even the inbred, bloodthirsty redneck shitwits in charge of the US agree are necessary.

Hey Dazz, wake up! I'm not talking about executing the innocent. I'm talking about executing the GUILTY!! Don't leave them on death row forever. When their last appeal is exhausted and they are guilty, then put a bullet in their brain the next day. We owe it to the families of the victims to put them down quickly!

Hell, I even agree with nemesystem, bring back hangings and the guillotine! Off with their heads.

Also Dazz, I did read on death penalty info.org that only about 4% of those on death row are innocent. I personally think that number is high. And of those on death row almost 10% of them had a previous homicide on their record. That's insane! What are these killers doing back out in society to kill again? A total lack of respect for human life.

I'm just surprised to see you making arguments in favour of big government

Apples to oranges. We're not talking about comparable things.

By your logic I support big government because I use the mail system. : (

Not very well thought out, Dazz. I expect better from you. Lazy logic.

You support big government because you think it’s ok to give the government the right to take the lives of its citizens.

It's the criminal justice system. Who do you think is responsible for criminal justice? Supporting the criminal justice system doesn't make me a proponent of "big government" as you call it.

We owe it to the families of the victims to put these killers down!

I could be nasty and point out you support state funded murder of unborn babies through abortion...yet you oppose the state executing a killer. Now I'll ask you, why?

In my view the only person who has the right to either give or take life is the God who made me.

I agree. I mean, I don't believe in any god but I don't think anyone has the right to take another life. It is always wrong. In self-defence it is also wrong, but possibly the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Is it justice when you kill innocent people?


Here Dazz, let me begin by defining justice. Justice is what's just, fair, and equitable. A monster criminal robs and murders a person. An equitable outcome for this killer is the death penalty. A killer is not innocent. It is against the law to commit an unjustifiable homicide. This is why the death penalty is justice as it is a just, fair, and equitable outcome.

Certainly you don't think murderers should roam free on the streets.

If you disagree with me on the death penalty for a murderer that's fine. We can agree to disagree. BUT, I must ask you this first: what do you think is proper justice for a guilty killer? I mean how do you think a murderer should be punished given the fact they maliciously took the life of another person? Me? I think the death penalty is an equitable form of justice. Simply put, they took a life so their life is taken. That's justice. Explain yourself instead of asking me more questions. I've made myself crystal clear with simple words. I want to know how you'd punish a guilty killer.

I can agree with this statement but also add god works in mysterious ways such as allowing the death penalty to be carried out.(or any death for that matter) If he/she/them didn't agree with it wouldn't there be an "act of god" or a miracle as some call it... to stop it?

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives He releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water

I believe it is.. funny how Christianity doesn't adhere to their own teachings.
Thou shalt not kill worked wonders during the crusades lmao

Who said it was justice to execute an innocent person? That isn't justice... it's a miscarriage of justice. I'd reserve the death penalty for crimes where there's no doubt like suicide bombers pedophiles and rapists or serial killers.

The death penalty. in addition to being barbaric. risks the possibility of executing an innocent and costs much more than the death penalty. What could be worse than living in a cell for the rest of your life in this world of abundance and beauty?

 You’re in favor of symbolic posthumous executions for the bombers and letting murderers with
less than three kills slide...interesting.
Jared Fogle and Bill Cosby not being executed must piss you off. Yeah?

lol the only thing interesting is your limited perspective of the the examples that were cited.

Nope. Why would I be pissed off that either of those idiots haven't been executed? Sure I'd like to see it happen but I have no say in that matter.

How do you feel about the OJ Simpson or Casey Anthony verdicts?

Interesting question, nemesystem.
All Dazz can type is innocent, but what is his position on people that are guilty and never brought to justice?

Also notice how Dazz didn't answer my question on how guilty killers should be punished. Crickets again! Just like the healthcare question.

That's fine. If you reserve the death penalty for cases where there's absolutely no doubt at all, you'd never execute anyone because absolute proof is impossible.

They should be isolated from the population. What should happen after that depends on the circumstances surrounding the killing.
