A monster burned an 82 year old man to death in his home. Why in God's name should anyone care how long it takes him to die and whether he feels any pain?

People don't get on Death Row "just" for killing someone. Only the worst of the worst are even eligible for a death sentence. All the concern for the criminal makes me sick. Where's the concern for the victim and the families they left behind?

The constitution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Not cruel or unusual punishment. So it can be painful so long as it is not unusual. Thus he could be put to death the same way as his victims. I for one have no problem burning stabbing skinning or shooting a democrat voter, err I mean criminal.
