Great documentary. Thanks for sharing.
Human kind should have long ago abandoned this barbaric practice.

"Using a painless method of execution is inhumane, to the victim of the crime."

Never thought about it this way, but it makes so much sense.

I was in favor of execution before. I am really in favor of it now.

No matter how heinous a person's crime might be, the worst penalty they can receive in many states and all Canada is life in prison. Presently, the cost of each year spent uselessly sitting behind bars is over $40,000 per inmate. That's more than a million bucks for 25 years in jail - if the cost never increased. And to what end? Imagine the benefits to society if the staggering costs of imprisoning people who would, in the past, be executed could be turned toward health programs.
That's why I think there's a place for capital punishment. Just do it right, with people who know what they're doing.

Why did they stop using the guillotine?


Because of the risk of infection.

High explosives. I assure you, there is no pain if the entire body is turned into a pink mist in a fraction of a second. Also, there is no worries about a botched attempt. Problem solved.

Having said that, I would much rather the United States join the rest of the civilized world and ban executions.

It's also important to wonder how many people have been put to death on fabricated evidence. Death isn't humane, never will be. Regardless of the crime, society - if she would wish a more peaceful existence - has to set an example of hope (for a better world).

Eye for an eye was supposedly ended with the new testament. Read your scripture. Unless you're Islamic or Jewish (neither premise figures in basic US law) execution is contrary to christian belief.

Statistics show that the death penalty is not a deterrent. As a "christian" nation, is incarceration the humanitarian response to evil or does revenge overpower forgiveness?

The guillotine was actually a pretty gruesome and nerve-wracking way to die. The blade wouldn't always be sharp enough to cut through the spine, or even break skin sometimes. It would take multiple tries to cut through the neck, much like using an axe to behead someone.

To those that think executing someone is barbaric, you do realize this is a reaction to something they have done, right? They wouldn't be executed if they hadn't ended a life themselves. I ask you, where was the sympathy for the victim of the death row inmate? I really do think some people are more empathetic to a killer, than a victim.

Most of these people murdered someone to receive a death sentence. I would ask them how "humanely" they killed their victim(s). I would be willing to bet their victims were not afforded the luxury of being unconscious before dying. Execute the proven guilty in a speedy manner too. This should be done to those that either were caught in the act of killing, or are on video or have numerous credible witnesses to provide "no doubt" evidence. I don't think the death penalty should be carried out on those guilty through circumstancial evidence.
The idea to "kill" someone in a "humane" manner, is ironic in itself. There is nothing hummane about ending the life of another, no matter how it's done.

Being an atheist who doesn't believe in the afterlife I'm not sure that being dead is a great punishment for being an ashole in life.

I agree, bring back the guillotine. Quick, easy and cheap.

I can get on board with the idea of a humane execution. The real torture for the criminal is setting in jail counting down the days until you die. Everyone dies but we have no idea when or how it will happen, which helps us not dwell on it too much. A criminal knows exactly what is going to happen and there is nothing they can do. How I see things...that is the real punishment and reason for the death penalty.

@Gerry1of1....o.k lets see how it stacks up against Portillo's criteria of a perfect execution.

1. requires no medical expertise....nope just a guy who can pull a rope.

2. Quick, painless death guaranteed...As instant as you're going to get.(although it was thought there might be consciousness for a few moments after beheading but never proven)

3. Not gory...Oh dear. But i wonder if the blade could be heated to cauterize the wound

4. No co-operation required from prisoner...apart from getting into the contraption and putting their neck under a very large blade, nope

Conclusion: I dunno why they stopped using it either Gerry.

I am strongly opposed to the death penalty, but why would someone who is for the death penalty care if it's humane or not? If the thought of making a human being suffer is so disagreeable to you, why don't you just stop being pro-capital punishment? And conversely, if the point of the death penalty is to punish, what good does it do to anesthetize it so much?

"Because some folks aren't animals. Whether it's the animals on death row or the animals like you who don't mind stooping to their level of inhumanity."

Hahaha, don't give me all peace, love & hippy bullsh*t! The real "animals" are the people that prey on others robbing, raping & murdering. Those people don't deserve a peaceful & humane dead, they sure as hell didn't treat their victims humanely.

It's fast.

I'm not in favor of the death penalty, but the Chop was a quick way, and more certain of quick death than hanging.

Well I feel physically sick. Execution is just something I will never be okay with.

"But the major problem with lethal injection, as testified by Carol Vieler (sp?) in the video, is the first chemical only knocks the victim out for a short amount of time, not long enough for the other two drugs to induce death. so after the first drug runs out the victim suffers the horrendous effects of the paralyzing and cardiac drugs for several minutes following it"

So what? They wont remember it? Added to that, the fact that it is a nicer death than being raped for 5 hours before having your throat slit. They should have had a little more compassion from themselves in order to gain compassion for themselves.

strap a 10 cent paper dust mask on 'em, and start a diethyl ether drip on it- stuff used to kill surgical patients in the late 19th and early 20th century- as well as doctors that used it for recreation.
Cheap, low tech and a peaceful way to go.

The whole point of the word is that we are human and should strive to be above our animalistic urges.
