To me, tracer, what you mention and ask is a matter of apples and oranges.
Because to those who oppose capital punishment and/or the death penalty, the issue is not a humane death nor a painless
death. It is the fact
that there is any type capital punishment that decrees death; simply, the bottom line is that there is a death sentence that puts people to death,
As for what you ask, all current methods, including lethal injection have been and are argued to be inhumane and cause pain:
Personally, use a stronger anesthetic and then raise the dosage of that anesthetic given, to the point of death--and skip the lethal injection.
Opps, but the issue still remains, cause then it moves from being painful and inhumane to simply giving a death sentence as being inhumane. Still a
matter of "damned if you do, damned if you don't."
