None of them

Disgusting and hard question. I went with beheading. Criteria was least potential for prolonged death, or botched execution.

.... They should be killed the way they killed the victim.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T18:00:44.9992978-05:00
@shaancl_716 Why shouldn't the person killing the murderer be killed then?
TBR says2015-04-04T18:01:05.4175414-05:00
Shaancl_716 - What is its spanking?
TBR says2015-04-04T18:01:20.5649472-05:00
If it is spanking

If people kill each other for killing each other everyone ends up dead. In the words of Mahatma Ghandi "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind".

It's cheaper to hold people in prison than to kill them.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T18:12:49.3897160-05:00
After being beheaded a person still has conscience for up to 30 seconds. There is also possible for a person to experience full body phantom limb syndrome which would be very painful. So being beheaded could be like being in full body agony while you feel yourself dying.
TBR says2015-04-04T18:16:55.2893634-05:00
Got any reliable reference for that Mathgeek?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T18:29:09.9619444-05:00
Futurepresident2048 what about adding the method of "cooling the bodies body temperature to 64.4F so that the person is indistinguishable from someone who is actually dead before the execution" Effectively cooling a person down to 64.4F is currently used to preform heart surgeries.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T18:33:12.6636328-05:00
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T18:34:57.6742092-05:00
How about: No execution.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T18:45:29.9114339-05:00
Oh that source was for the cooling of patients for heart surgery I didn't see TBR comment when I was typing.
Dilara says2015-04-04T18:48:46.8108564-05:00
Can someone explain what a firing squad does? I haven't had the stomach to look it up.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T18:52:14.6140162-05:00
@dilara shoots the criminal, presumably in the head.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T19:38:30.7390251-05:00
I would choose gas chambers as it uses the same method as lethal injection but they breathe it in and there's no chance of it being botched. Painless and efficient.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T19:49:14.0441260-05:00
@retrogamer176 Actually execution from firing squad. Quote-The prisoner dies as a result of blood loss caused by rupture of the heart or a large blood vessel, or tearing of the lungs. The person shot loses consciousness when shock causes a fall in the supply of blood to the brain. If the shooters miss the heart, by accident or intention, the prisoner bleeds to death slowly. (Hillman, 1992 and Weisberg, 1991)-end quote. Http://www.Deathpenaltyinfo.Org/descriptions-execution-methods#firing
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T19:51:08.6256838-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe ... That's just cruel... Why not shoot them, oh I don't know... IN THE HEAD???!!!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T19:54:03.8270376-05:00
@retrogamer176 "How about: No execution." I will explain why I support the death penalty with my comment from that poll. The death penalty in the end is a needed buffer. It protects punishments from being to weak, if you abolish the death penalty then life in prison would be soon to follow. Eventually you would get mass serial killers getting out of prison in 20 or so years which has happen in other countries. There is also deterrence which is a hard thing to measure, but I will explain it with logic. If I know a person is about to kill me, which is would affect them more, me saying "well I will be dead but you will be alive in prison till you die of natural causes." or "Well I will be dead but so will you, and you would spend the rest of your life in prison knowing the date you will die."
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T19:55:54.1644230-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe I'm only for the death penalty if it's Hitler.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T19:57:54.8942912-05:00
I support the death penalty for any intentional murder of 1 or more.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T20:04:24.6522782-05:00
With hard DNA and/or witness evidence
briantheliberal says2015-04-04T21:01:59.0024902-05:00
Damn it I accidentally click on one so I am going with lethal injection. Anyway, there is no humane way to kill a human being.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-04T22:22:04.1418294-05:00
@briantheliberal Unless it's hitler.
58539672 says2015-04-05T00:09:03.3035314-05:00
Hmm, what is the most humane form of execution? I don't really know. Its kind of hard to get feed back from the receivers of the execution.
rphk123 says2015-04-05T14:27:04.0827145-05:00
The one that doesn't kill them. Oh wait...
graceafur says2015-04-09T13:47:42.5620683-05:00
Depends on how fast the injection kicks in. Beheading, no. Your head is still conscious thirty seconds after cut off.
