Governor, Supreme Court reject stay request; inmate awaits execution


www.cnn.com

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request Thursday to temporarily stay the execution of death row inmate Ronnie Lee Gardner, who is set to die before a Utah firing squad early Friday.

The Supreme Court's rejection means Gardner, 49, will stay on schedule to face execution shortly after midnight Friday (2 a.m. ET) for the shooting death of attorney Michael Burdell during a botched escape attempt from custody in 1985 at a Salt Lake City, Utah, courthouse. He would be only the third person to die by firing squad in the United States in 33 years.

The thrid person in 33 years to face the firing squad. Now ATS I ask you what thoughts do you have about this, and the debate:
Lethal Injection vs Firing Squad and being able to choose your fate?

I have to admit I am on the fence here and really don't know what to say about this, really it wasn't my call obviously it was this mans decision.

ATS what do you think?
