    Don't you think that it would actually be worse punishment for this guy to have to spend the rest of his life rotting away in prison, with absolutely no chance whatsoever to get parole? Isn't executing him kind of putting him out of his deserved misery?

    Just some food for thought....

    This has to be a record span on this board without some yahoo talking about how the chair is cruel punishment for a human being.

    Starman's probably worried about second-hand scalp...

    That is actually my prefered sentence in all murder cases. 3 squares, 60 minutes out of the box per day, and monthly physical/mental checkups. An AM radio and all old copies of Boys Life, Better Homes and Gardens, Luxury Living and Tiger Beat magazines they can read.

    In some ways I agree with you.

    I would be for a much more torturous manner of death.

    But, save that, keeping him jailed is less expensive and helps clear the courts.

    And that is probably the real reason a lot of politicians support capital punishment.

    No, they just like to wave their dicks and talk about how tough they are.

    Anyone who needs coverage, I'm in Richmond tonight. PM me. On second thought, my back hurts. I'm going to the whirlpool ...

    Can't be cruel if you volunteer for it, can it?

    I'd have taken bled to death by leeches, then eat a real salty meal before the execution.

    I'd love to be a witness for this. How do I sign up?
