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.
you make a very good point. even those who are sentenced to death and demand it ASAP, has some ****org who appeals for them, against there will, for that 25 years. if they want it, give it to them, regardless of what a pro-life group does for him in court! against his will.get them, out of the way, and it becomes cheaper cause no appeal=instent death,not 63,000 per yr per prisioner.let the brain dead be unplugged also,thats 1 MILLION per day per prisioner and every prision could save 60 million in the first year!Hang the rest in public, even kids, as today they to carry guns!snap,piss,dead, gun dropped!

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.
If you knew what was involved, you'd choose a firing squad. Lethal injection is a painful process that works only when administered properly. Most of the time prison officials don't know how to find a vein or mix the powdered drugs adequately. The first drug, if injected improperly, will not cause unconsciousness. The second drug, pancuronium bromide paralyzes all muscles, including those needed to breath. It's at that point that the condemned feel asphyxiation. They slowly suffocate while conscious and unable to communicate. The third drug, potassium chloride, stops the heart. It is not uncommon for an inmate, during the lethal injection process, to take from 30 to 90 minutes to die.

The predominant method of animal euthanasia is an anesthetic-only procedure involving the injection of a single barbiturate. When injected with the barbiturate, usually sodium pentobarbital, an animal quickly moves into a state of unconsciousness and then death - a far more humane procedure.

So 5 in total, randomly handed loaded weapons to volunteers policeman in the sheriffs department and the 5 executioners were chosen in a lottery! EXECUTE ALL PEOPLE WHO COMMIT MURDER!:) Happy day in Utah for sure! 20 years this s.o.b avoided his just dessert! Sorry Ronnie Lee your stupid idea of a garden for kids DIDN'T delay your deth! lolololololol...Let this be a warning to illegals who wanna commit crimes in good ol' Utah!
It's been 25 years since Gardner was incarcerated for robbery & murder (robbed and killed a man at Cheers Tavern). Later, Gardner shot an attorney while attempting an escape from prison.
Question: What does this have to do with
"Let this be a warning to illegals who wanna commit crimes in good ol' Utah"???
This has nothing to do with "illegals"... Gardner was an "Anglo".
OT: BTW, search Joseph Smith, Utah, rape and you may want to reconsider the name you use while posting on the "raped to death" article elsewhwere in these topix boards.
Your maniacal "lolololololol" shows your "mens rea" and is not in keeping with the "beliefs" that your church likely has?
On topic: Gardner wanted the "death by firing squad", which is no longer used in UT, but was allowed Gardner under a "grandfather (ed) law".
BTW, Gardner was a Mormon.
(Most "illegals" are Catholic or Christian if they have a faith.)
So, you cannot delight in any more "firing squads" of "illegals" or any others. "Firing squad" is off the books in UT except in old death row cases. I thought you would have known that.
