    Georgia doesn't have firing squad as a method of execution.  This would effectively commute his sentence to life in prison.  Even if Georgia went through the process of making firing squad a sanctioned method of execution, he could just argue it was not valid when he was sentenced and thus would be ex post facto if applied to him.  Of course, what this was about specifically was the form of motion he could file to argue his case.  SO, the state could take up the new type of petition and then tell him to get stuffed.

    Of course, given today's ruling, the state of Georgia couldn't restrict access to guns legally based on place, so I guess giving them to a few other prisoners and letting them unload on him would be perfectly fine...
  • So the court is pro choice now?
  • I'm 100% anti death penalty.

    But if you're going to kill people, damn it the people doing it should know that they've killed someone. And the people that support it should see that it's a real thing.

    The governor of the state or the president should do the executions.  Have them saw off the heads of the criminals with a sword.  Isis style.  And make sure the public gets to watch.  And steam it all on youtube in 4k hdr 60hz.  8k where available.
  • That the conservative position is not that government should not have the power to kill one of its own citizens baffles me.
  • South Carolina's primary method is execution

    South Carolina's primary method of execution is ... execution?

    The snozzberries taste like snozzberries.
  • No civilized society would consider this in any way "good."
  • aleister_greynight: So he gets to die by a slightly less barbaric method.


    No.  He gets to sue to try to die by firing squad.
  • Four states have the use of a firing squad as an approved method of execution -- Mississippi, Oklahoma, Utah and South Carolina, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. South Carolina's primary method is execution, while the other three use lethal injection as a primary method.

    Execution by execution would be the way I'd want to go. Not sure if I'd be saved or ironically murdered by stack overflow.

    "one of its own" is doing a lot of work in that sentence.
  • LrdPhoenix: No.  He gets to sue to try to die by firing squad.


    Uh. So lethal injection can be pretty frickin' horrifying, especially since the people who know what they're doing refuse to assist - leaving you with clueless clowns.

    If I absolutely had to choose, I would also pick the bullet. Corrections officers at least use the firing range on the regular and can presumably hit their target most of the time.

    Why? Conservatives are authoritarians, have been since they were trying to restore the Bourbon monarchy.
  • Death by firing squad in Georgia?

    So they put him in blackface and let him drive around the state with a broken taillight. Should take under an hour, if what I know about GA is accurate.

  • aleister_greynight: So he gets to die by a slightly less barbaric method.


    I would say a vastly less barbaric method.

    Dana White would be all over that PPV opportunity. They could even have a card of executions at shiate like CPAC, Trump klan rallys, and flyover country county fairs. "This execution is brought to you by John Deere!". "Next up, the My Pillow main event of the evening, stay tuned!"

    It's like they took the original photo of his face...photoshopped all of his pores away...then photoshopped fake ones in to replace the originals.

    No. They don't refuse to assist (or maybe they do but it's irrelevant). Licensed medical practitioners are legally forbidden to assist - that whole pesky hippocratic oath thing. Someone without a medical license must push the drugs that kill a condemned person.

  • I could have called this......anything having to do with gun use is now a full go.
    Tool up!

    Yeah, but can it be guaranteed the people with the weapons will hit the target?  I'm thinking the condemned will end up with about five bullet wounds to the gut and another in the shoulder.

    Even getting hit in the heart has to suck , briefly.  Maybe you're just so high on adrenaline you don't really notice before you lose consciousness.
