    So, an eye for an eye. Except she was an innocent child.

    Good riddance. God will have a few words with him.

    Referring to the 8th?

    "The Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights (ratified December 15, 1791) prohibiting the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishment."

    They should have brought him back to life and do it again. Kid killers need to have the little extra upon termination of life.

    Yep, that would be it.

    Appalling that these death-penalty freak wags above sit and revel in sadism. Even if one advocates the death penalty the idea is to rid society of the criminal, not to exact "revenge". That these freaks froth at the mouth over the sadism aspect just demonstrates the moral paucity of their position.

    From the link:

    >> "In refusing to grant Irick a stay, the Court today turns a blind eye to a proven likelihood that the State of Tennessee is on the verge of inflicting several minutes of torturous pain on an inmate in its custody," Ms Sotomayor wrote. "If the law permits this execution to go forward in spite of the horrific final minutes that Irick may well experience, then we have stopped being a civilised nation and accepted barbarism."

    The US Supreme Court has described potassium chloride as "chemically burning at the stake". <<

    Bring back the guillotine. Can’t call it cruel. If you do, you still can’t call it unusual.

    I'd be happy if they felt 1/10th of the pain, suffering, and torture they visited on thier victims.
