Due to the recent "botched" execution i have been hearing much talk about Capital Punishment.
Currently i believe the choices that we have here in the USA are :

- Lethal Injection
- Poison Gas
- Electrocution Chair
- Hanging
- Firing squad (multiple chest shots).


Let us brainstorm some alternate methods for execution

Here are some that i thought of

1 Head-shot. A High Caliber Rifle Round .30 and up (Directly to the back of the head) Death is near instantaneous possibly painless possibly would not even hear the shot. Very Cheap and Effective.

2 Guillotine. Bringing back a Classic, A large heavy slanted blade on guide rails and Precession cuts off the head in a flash, sure its messy but we can set it up over a stream. plus the victims family can bring home a souvenir whats better than a head on a spike for a dinner table display?

3 Carbon Monoxide. Simple and easy just a room full of car exaust and fall asleep probly no pain.


im looking forward to hearing some ideas. Maybe a Rube-Goldberg type device

You knew this was coming right....




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!


Peace

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.

Yes, of course.
But the govt isn't about saving money.

having heard of various beheading including one of our former monarchs i'd say that if in the day when we had specialists to do the job and they couldn't do it first time what do you expect some guy who does it one day a week to achieve?

or maybe we can save up a whole bunch of death row inmates and send them off to mars as the first colonists to set up bases, they are going to die anyways might as well do something good for society.

The new Australia? I have a solution. With the nfl moving to safer and more pc images, let them play sarcastaball and move the death row inmates to the coliseum. Being back gladiators, 25 wins and you are free...

Oh, I have one.

Make a big wheel like casinos have, but instead of numbers, there is a packed parachute on every space. Let's say there are 20 parachutes. Only one has an actual parachute (we'll call it a "pardon"), the rest have varying amounts of cash stuffed in them. The prisoner is then transported by plane above a raging forest fire and shoved out.

If he gets the rig with the actual parachute, and manages to learn how to maneuver it without being consumed by the fire, then hike his way out to safety, he is a free man. If he gets one of the cash-filled rigs, his family (or his victim's family) gets to keep whatever cash isn't consumed by the raging forest fire. The cash comes from the pay-per-view proceeds collected before the broadcast.

Another one:

Tattoo "Chivato" on his forehead and across his back, strip him down to his tighty whiteys and drop him in Juarez at high noon in August.

Not only would it get the job done, it would save the taxpayers a whole bunch of money.

Can we shoot the politicians twice? And lets make it a space shot and load the bottle with C02 and oxygen to help with global warming, or is that climate change, either way. But definitely the politicians twice.

Argon gas would an inexpensive and less messy alternative. They use it in the poultry industry as more humane alternative to electrocution.

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.

Except that you'd be creating supervillains. Imagine these guys who could go around stomping Somali pirates like it was nothing. Do you think they'd follow orders?

I've always thought that we should bring back hard labor. Oh yeah, boo hoo, it is cruel and unusual punishment according to the ACLU. Anyway, bring back long hours of work. Not muscle-building work, either. Body-flogging, boring labor that might actually be a deterrent. I would think the last thing a criminal wants to do is bust his ass for nothing.

The reason why I stopped supporting the death penalty

None of this barbarism is appropriate. Not in my name.

Personally I feel the most "humane" method would be severing the spine at about the neck. I am pretty sure that would be instantaneous, but not certain. IF that is the case, then something like the guillotine would seem a relatively humane thing compared with some of the other methods. But I do not believe in capital punishment to begin with. There have been to many cases of wrongful convictions, and I would rather spend 20 or more years in jail and then be exonerated as opposed to being killed and then exonerated, as there is no coming back from that kind of mistake.
