Brutality → Electric chair execution

In 1886, after a particularly gruesome and bloody hanging was reported, New York State established a committee to determine a new, more humane system of execution to replace hanging. How humane this execution method is you can see in the images of execution of Allen Lee Davis (aka "Tiny") on July 8, 1999 on the Florida electric chair "Old Sparky". He was a pedophile and murderer of three. Davis' face was bloodied and photographs taken, which were later released by the Florida Supreme Court.

The electric chair is an execution method in which the person being put to death is strapped to a chair and electrocuted through electrodes placed on the body. This execution method has been used only in the United States and for a period of several decades in the Philippines (its first use there in 1924). The electric chair has become a symbol of the death penalty. However, its use is on a decline, with Nebraska being the last state that uses it as a sole method of execution.

There is nothing more barbaric than feeling sorry for murderers. While it's terrible that we have to take a life of a person, the death penalty is entirely necessary. It is the only measure that can return equilibrium, and thus provide us with justice.
