I'm confused why we're so concerned about using the best lethal injection chemical. Why not have five or six different ones available and use the cheapest one?

I understand "cruel and unusual punishment" but is there really much of a difference between these chemicals? Sounds like a lot of time, energy and money being wasted to me.

A sad day for humanity and for Ohio in particular. It's tragic that we think the proper way to deal with killers is by killing.

Seems to most of us, that they've "EARNED" the right for us to pay for a chemical cocktail. But don't worry, we'll pay for some appeals and a nice last meal. Do you think any of them offered their victims a last meal? BTW, what would you like to eat?

Ok, then you can take them to your house to "rehab" them on your dime. Give them what they deserve, a chance to meet their maker since they took it upon themselves to send those unfortunate, innocent lives to meet theirs.

I said nothing about rehabilitation--keep these people in prison until the day they die. They're no longer a threat to society and are, by many measures and according to many experts, costing taxpayers less because of appeals and the seemingly infinite cost of legal fees.

There is no place for murder in a civilized society--either by individuals or by the state.

I don't think that there is a shortage of bullets, trees and rope, and it's cheaper!

Actually, with all the appeals, it costs more to execute them than it would if they got life without parole.
