On paper crucifiction is arguably one the most agonising way to die. You have nails driven through you wrists and ankles, and you're left at the mercy of gravity and carrion birds... that will converge on you while you're still alive. Personally speaking, I'm generally against the death penalty, as I think spending the rest of your days in the confines of a Supermax is a fitting means of mental torture. But having said that, there are some crimes that demand the ultimate of restitutions, such as the rape of a minor or mass murder - such as unloading a gun in a packed classroom. Would you support the idea of a convicted pedophile being lead from the courtroom to a place of execution where they're literally nailed to a cross and left to die? If you disagree, could you live in a society/country that resurrected and used one of the Romans' most enduring legacies?
