Third thread response:

Ronnie Lee Gardner CHOSE to die by firing squad. Did you get that? HE CHOSE IT.

The people he shot and killed didn't get a choice. Did you get that? THEY HAD NO CHOICE. He DECIDED to SHOOT and KILL them.

Frankly, right now, I am thinking about all the people in this world, infants especially, that have died at the hands of 'human beings' that CHOSE to KILL them.

I'm not really feeling any injustice here.

I believe in the death penalty for some cases. However, if the objective is to render this person "gone from the face of the earth"....then why must it be done in such a gruesome fashion? There is medication that will stop your heart, which could be given with some anesthesia. It wouldn't take 14 people to administer the process, and the agony of guilt for the shooters wondering "who got the blank"...... and end result is the same.
Why the ceremony of the "lethal injection" or the DRAMA of this firing squad? The process seems as sick as the individual being disposed of.....
Concerned, get over yourself.... First, the shooters VOLUNTEER for this duty, so they believe in it and from interviews with past executioners, they do NOT feel guilt afterward. Secondly, many medical experts have deemed this a very humane execution method. Within seconds of the impact, the condemned go into shock, and while there are muscle reflexes, death comes relatively quickly. Last, HE CHOSE THIS METHOD OVER LETHAL INJECTION based on input from his advisers about the process!

Death penalty means that the government fights crime and cruelty with the same methods that everyone adjudges. So basically every country that has not abolished death penalty and torture are just as bad as the people they are punishing!

Quick question: Killing this guy will bring back to life the people he took when he did his bad deeds?
To me, death penalty is not about justice, is about rage, revenge, retaliation, vengeance, vindictiveness or whatever you want to call it. It is something to make apparently “feel good”(an eye for an eye) to the families of the victims but that actually doesn't bring anything but more hatred.
Lastly, I laugh when I read people writing about taxpayers' money to keep people in jail. Jail, ladies and gentlemen is not a 5 stars hotel. People there get raped, abused, beaten and who know what else. They are not having fun in there with your tax money.
My heart is bleeding.
