"He was sentenced to death in 1985, but legal proceedings have dragged on since then."

25 years, not bad for the legal department. I mean, he's only a convicted killer and all.

Yeah I know feiku. I was just trying to say to ten_speed that putting an "express lane" to execution is not really the best way to go about it. Just because DNA evidence exists, it's not a clear case of "Oh that proves he was there and must have done it, let's put him to death now".

moefreak- I watch forensic files (the real-life version of CSI) and while CSI is a huge exaggeration of how things proceed in real life, methods of gathering forensic evidence and DNA evidence have improved GREATLY. It's not like they'll find a random hair and go "IT'S THEM". It's only if the person had some sort of connection to the victim and if the hair would be unusual at the scene had it gotten there any other way.

ten_speed, you've been watching too much CSI methinks. People have a completely twisted perception nowadays about how often any viable DNA evidence is available in crimes. For example, in CSI they often say "your hair was found in this persons house, how do you explain that". Perhaps the hair was stuck on someone's shoe, and thus travelled to your house. How many hairs do you think you have from random people in your house right now? The trouble is, juries nowadays are unwilling to find someone guilty unless there is DNA evidence, because they think that's the only way to know for sure that someone is guilty. Most often there is no DNA evidence.

Problem with the death penalty is it's not used nearly enough. The rest of the country should follow Texes' lead and put in an express lane to it.
On a more serious note however; the death penalty should be used more often with less appeals. We have DNA and all that other nifty stuff that doesn't lie. It's just the way we collect our evidence and such that's messed up not the system.

"I also always wondered if it would be a good idea to kill people on death row the way they killed their victims."

have the punishment fit the crime... I can see the sense in that but it'd probably be a little impractical.
And I think it was the ancient greeks who thought that up too - if someone burnt a house down, killing the people inside they were burnt to death.

And how about Jeremy Clarkson with a koenigsegg

"Snoo-snoo!"

"What did they die of?"
"Crushed pelvises!"
*all look horrified, Fry and Zapp alternating to grins*

I think that'd probably be quite painful... death by snoo snoo from women twice your size...

"if you have capital punishment it should be as painless as possible, I assume a bullet in the brain is as good as it gets."

I dunno, I'd probably pick lethal injection - isn't that an anaesthetic then something lethal? That way the only pain you have is the first needle going in then you go to sleep and don't wake up

what does his mormon heritage have to do with wanting a firing squad? pretty sure mormon heritage has more to do with NOT killing people. just seems weird that he said that, you know?

I'm pretty sure a firing squad aim for the heart not the brain. One guy has a blank but no one knows who.

Apparently not everyone is on the up and up about how exactly a firing squad works...to avoid the guilt of the shooters that is...here is a hint, not everyone has a real bullet.

if i was a convicted murderer who can choose the way of her execution, i'd want the guillotine.

i've always wondered how does it feels.

Well- it is his choice, if you have capital punishment it should be as painless as possible, I assume a bullet in the brain is as good as it gets. The fact that capital punishment is obscene may be an argument for another day!

Capital punishment is such a travesty anyway. Inhumane and a complete waste of money and resources. But if I had to be executed, I wouldn't mind a firing squad. As long as the people shooting me are excellent shots.

I think I'd choose old age.

And believe me, there'd be a hell of a lot more mess for someone else to clean up than if they shot me.

I'd do it. Or guillotine. If I was getting killed off, I'm gonna make SOMEBODY clean up the mess.

@MizzMe, I think he meant it to be embarrassing in a sense of "Look how brutal this is!" Kind of saying that it's awful that they allow for these things to happen? That's the only idea I have.

Let me get this straight, he killed a lawyer and they aren't building a theme park in his honor? Being a recent/former Florida resident, I'd choose Ol' Sparky, because lethal injection is for pussies, and they don't offer firing squads or guillotines.What they should offer is the "Muffin Monster" from '30 days of night'.HELL YEAH! Just toss 'em in! I'd do a swan dive! EEF-'em!

Hell it's Utah, he's bound to die horribly anyhow. I'm all for Capital Punishment for the same reason I'm all for Abortion. Too many a-holes and unwanted children on the planet already.

@ Seastone: Really?? If that guy killed someone I knew, I would happily pull the trigger on that SOB.

I get your point, Seastone, but somebody help me out here...how is choosing the firing squad "embarrassing the state"? I mean, isn't it a massive fail no matter what happens? In the end, who really loses?

Thoughts?
