This cost about 50 cents to get the job done. A great savings to Utah taxpayers.

Well done, Utah. The state will certainly catch flack from "human rights activists", but this "man" got what he deserved.

I think if ever ended up on death row, firing squad is not what I would pick to be put to death. Just saying I would pick something not quite as brutal, like lethal injection, if I ever ended up in that situation.

Cool! San Juan Co. should follow suit about three times a week. Cope whould do the honors for free. I'd buy the ammo, from Cope of coarse.

Eye for an eye!! He deserved it! He took two lives, and he chose execution by firing squad over lethal injection. To bad it took 20 years for it to happen.

Should have given him a sporting chance ... a gun with five bullets ... let him run off into the woods and have them five "marksmen" hunt the man down .. that would make great Pay Per View ..

Now all we need is the other 49 states, to shoot, or hang, those on death row!

WHY?

Because there are crimes commited that DESERVE the death penalty!

Yes it is highly expensive to get somebody execute, but the cost involved has nothing to do the method of execution. That money is what it costs for the legal process to work, filing the appeals etc. Regardless of the method the tax payers will be out the same amount of money.
