    actually firing squad is pretty fast....they use people who are crack shots....where as hanging has complications and math involved....if you dont hang them high enough..the neck does not snap and they dangle and choke....hang them too high (we are talking the trap door types) and you can pull the head from the body....

    the inventor of the electric chair swears that when maintained properly and all...the chair is the most humane way to go...but chairs have not been maintained nor updated leading to some horror stories...

    lethal injection is not as humane as its cracked up to be either...

    yep, but hanging is the fastest and optimal way to execute criminals, it's used in Iran, Japan, KOREA...ETC.

    firing squad or former french guillotine is barbaric

    ahhhh apparently you have enough blood in your brain to live about 15 sec after your head is severed

    i dont see why you are all about hanging....it involves math did i mention that?

    torture....drawn and quartered....pressed to death...

    From a military standpoint firing squad was the honorable way of being executed. Hanging was seen as an embarassing way to die. Keitel and Jodl requested death by firing squad over hanging after Nuremberg and were denied.

    Interesting that the protectors and servers that manned the firing squad were "volunteers".
    That really defines the mentality of cops.

    I went up to the Old Wyoming State Prison in Rawlins, had Boy2 sit in the Gas Chamber, and took a picture.

    I'm thinkin' on framing it for him for his 15th B'day.:razz:
