Vote for firing squad shows frustration with drug shortages

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A vote by Utah lawmakers to bring back executions by firing squad is the most dramatic illustration yet of the nationwide frustration over bungled executions and shortages of lethal-injection drugs.

Utah and several other states are scrambling to modify their laws on the heels of a botched Oklahoma lethal injection last year and one in Arizona in which the condemned man took nearly two hours to die. Meanwhile, Texas executed a Mexican mafia hit man Wednesday evening with its second-to-last dosage of drugs.

Utah Republican Gov. Gary Herbert has declined to say if he will sign the firing-squad bill, a decision that's not expected for a week or so.

"States are wondering which way to go, and one way is to send up a warning flag that if you don't allow us freedom in this lethal-injection area, we'll do something else," said Richard Dieter, executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Death Penalty Information Center, which opposes capital punishment. "This might be a message rather than a preferred route of punishment."

States have struggled to keep up their drug inventories as European manufacturers opposed to capital punishment refuse to sell the components of lethal injections to U.S. prisons. The Texas deadline is the most imminent, but other states are struggling, too.

The Utah bill's sponsor, Republican Rep. Paul Ray, argues that a team of trained marksmen is faster and more humane than the drawn-out deaths involved when lethal injections go awry.

Huh Huh Huh
With death penalty opponents law suits and campaign against the drug manufactures, I suspect more states will bring back some of the old tried a true methods! I wonder if Florida will bring back old sparky? Outside of a few heads catching on fire it always worked pretty good!

On the upside MSNBC has something to talk about being that they have been dying for an alternative to Hillary's inability to do two things at once...

Actually, the electric chair is still secondary method in those states that have one.  WA state still hangs people, or did before that glorious moratorium.  HUZZAH!

I find it terribly amusing that those same people that barely trust the government enough to deliver their mail, happily give that same government the legal authority to end a citizens life, some sentenced as children!  The U.S.  being the ONLY nation in the world that proscribed the death penalty for minors and the reason for all the hoopla now.

Capital Punishment must end.

"From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death," Justice Blackmun, the Court's 85-year-old senior member, wrote in an emotional, highly personal and solitary dissent from the Court's refusal to hear the appeal of a Texas inmate.

"don't do the crime if ya cannot face the consequences and time"

Its a Wonderful idea. I think every state should do this and do it live on tv  and right after the perps walk out of court after found guilty ..10-4!
