offer this as a choice, though most prefer to die in their sleep
I agree, there are other ways to kill him, the problem is many states have legislation in place that would prevent alternative forms of carrying out
We can find examples of this in States where prisoners are permitted to choose how they die. We see the outrage on the news when Prisoners, in States
where they are able to do so, choose firing squad or hanging. The truth is, when this happens the Public gets outraged and cries and whines about
"humane ways to execute" prisoners. We can see this, for example, in Utah.
Utah for many years allowed prisoners to choose death by hanging or death by firing squad. Then in the mid 80's lethal injection came onto the scene
as a more humane method of execution. The truth is however, that lethal injection has proven not to be more humane as you can find case after case
after case of injections being administered incorrectly causing extreme pain and leaving a prisoner gasping and suffering for extended periods of
time. Today in Utah, prisoners who were sentenced to die before mid 1990's can still choose. Anyone else must take lethal injection.
We find these examples in many States and Ohio happens to be one State where there is no alternative method of execution. There is no choice. In Ohio
if you are sentenced to death, you will die by lethal injection. As a matter of fact, Ohio is one State that has had numerous battles over it's death
penalty sentence with the Federal Government, even causing some who were sentenced to die to then have their sentence commuted to life in prison.
