Tuesday Open Thread
There is a boring story out there about the lethal injection drugs not allways working the way they are intended to work - causing the people being executed pain. This is the latest effort by the anti-death penalty left wingers to try to alter our justice system. Somehow I doubt that many people care whether murderers being executed feel some pain on the way. Personally I hope they do. It is also amusing that on a lefty site like MSNBC the live vote (that usually goes in the liberal direction) with the question:
" In light of this review's findings that execution drugs don't always work as they're supposed to, do you think lethal injections should be banned?"
1. Absolutely. Lethal injections constitute cruel and unusual punishment. 24%
2. No. Capital punishment shouldn't have to be guaranteed to be pain-free. 71%
3. I'm not sure. 4.6%
I think lethal injection is too nice of a method. Bring the electric chair back!
