People may strongly disagree with me, but Iran needs a change. It should either surrender to a willing democratic nation and let a more civilized system, dictate goverment, or we add that to a list of reasons it may be in our interest to Invade Iran. All in the interest of nations moving away from barbaric acts.
A typical witnesses view of gassing is as follows "At first there is evidence of extreme horror, pain, and strangling. The eyes pop, the skin turns purple and the victim begins to drool".
A study of the execution records of 113 prisoners executed at San Quentin showed that the average time taken to kill them was 9.3 minutes.
Donald Eugene Harding Arizona - April 6th. 1992.
...Cameron Harper a reporter for KTVK-TV said, "I watched Harding go into violent spasms for 57 seconds. Then he began to convulse less frequently. His back muscles rippled. The spasms grew less violent. I timed them as ending six minutes and 37 seconds after they began. His head went down in little jerking motions. Obviously, the man was suffering. This was a violent death, make no mistake about it."; Harper went on, "It was an ugly event. We put animals to death more humanely. This was not a clean and simple death". Another Witness, Carla McClain, a reporter for the Tucson Citizen said, "Harding's death was extremely violent. He was in great pain. I heard him gasp and moan. I saw his body turn from red to purple."
