Real News. Real Funny.
wildcardjack: We got to a weird point about executions. A bottle of nitrogen gas could be the most effective execution chemical, but they insist on using complicated chemistry. More NASA employees have died from nitrogen flushed spaces than in rocket flight. They collapsed and died unconscious almost instantly, since it's an excess of CO2 that causes gasping. Pure nitrogen just zonks out the victim.
King Something: why lethal injection executions routinely "accidentally" under-dose the anesthetic that's supposed to paralyze and render unconscious the prisoner, and why Florida stopped using the electric chair after a fault in the wiring caused a prisoner to die instantly (read:too quickly to feel even the slightest bit of pain).
Munden: I'm opposed to state executions, with the exception of incontrovertible evidence of the crime committed of the most heinous of crimes, because I don't have faith in the systems to do it right.
lucksi: Ah yes, the US motto "Better to execute 100 innocent people, than one criminal to go free"/not saying that this guy was innocent//but he could have been seeing that you denied him DNA analysis
haywatchthis: what did that guy do to be sentenced to be executed
Private_Citizen: Arkansas had 8 people lined up to be executed - 4 black and 4 white. 3 of the 4 white guys already have stays (the last wants to die). Let's see how many of the black guys Arkansas will kill before the poison expires./If justice is blind, why does it seem to focus on the brown people with laser like focus?
Katolu: Hell, a Kurt Cobain shotgun blast would be more humane.
