03:31 am - blood forming in the shape of a cross
http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/botched.html

if you're gonna do this shit, at least do it right. what ever happened to guillotines? seems like that's a pretty fast/efficient way to go about it. lay the person down, drop the blade, and you're done. how long can someone live sans head? just make sure the damn thing is sharp enough and you're all set.
state: disgusted
np: reveille - get me outta here

Executioners with great big axes would be cool... Or guillotines, yes. The thing is the condemned seems to get multiple choice on how they die. And why isn't "ripped by tigers" one of the choices? Or say, gladiatorial games or something? Make a sport out of it to feed the Amuck public's bloodlust! That way, if they emerge victorious they can go free! A chance at redemption or bloody death!! =) No offense, Americans, I am just being silly.

Even better! We make it a *live* broadcast! So people flick their TV on, and watch it *LIVE*. And then, we make sure we give those people a device with pushbuttons (no more than 2, otherwise they might press the wrong one). So, while the execution is happening, they can choose for 'More!' or 'Stop!'. Or we could do it on the Internet: InterActiVe ExeCution. With Pop-Under ads from Amazon!



Sorry. No offense meant here either, just plain disgusted too. Hrrr-brr.

Pay per view. Let's make a profit on the poor guy's misery.

Hmmm. Great idea! And then make it taxable too! I mean, nothing is for nothing, right? ;-)

the poor guy's misery? ok, i may not be in favor of execution, but they're hardly some poor innocent soul. unless he was wrongly convicted, i don't feel terribly sorry for him

(disclaimer: i'm not sure exactly what your disclaimer covered, so if this is included, don't mind me)
