And I'm not talking about soft, American executions, like lethal injection. I'm talking about #ing crucifixion folks! Let's bring back crucifixions. A form of capital punishment the Christians and Jews of America can really appreciate. And I'd go a little further, I'd crucify people upside-down. Like Saint Peter, feet up, head down. And naked. I'd have naked upside-down crucifixions on TV once a week at halftime on the Monday Night Football game! Halftime! Monday Night! The Monday Night Crucifixions!

Well, assuming we're talking about the really bad people in society. You know...Murderers, Child Rapists, Politicians... Those sorts...?
I notice society is real squeamish about the actual dying part. People are gung ho to sentence someone to Death Row or to a box for death on the daily installment plan, but they just can't get past the final act of ending it all. Sooo... Funny you should ask, OP. I have an idea! We can get rid of those bad sorts and no one ever has to say they died. After all, no one will ever technically know. Really!
Put them in a little pod, a big bottle of oxygen, wish them well and send them on their way! It may take the fun out of wishing on a falling star for the short charges, but the world is an imperfect place.

How about a practical solution. 100 lashes if they survive that then a 1 year of the most hardest strictest military training known on this planet. Then once done they are no longer an individual they are a expendable assets for the country. Most dangours military mission, keeping the ocean safe by killing pirates. Protecting the boarders. And intergalactic espionage of other alien species if we ever meet hostel aliens. The trick is to put the soldiers through torture so extreme that they no longer fear the pain or death that they are about to receive. And to top it off have a nano bot attached to the pinel glan and if the person is not obeying orders or it out of control the nano bot releases a toxin or shock into the brain.
