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.

Yes I think people should go to prison. But like
the really bad cases they should be killed
immediately. Who wants to sleep when rapists
and serial killers are in a prison.

I stand for freedom and responsibility. If there's a death penalty in the code of laws a person who commits a crime killing someone knows the punishment is death. So shouldn't beg for mercy and whim cos deserved the capital punishment. Persons like that put themselves to death by breaking the law. Executioner isn't a killer.

These thought made them what they are. In normal these deranged people just experienced similar horros in their childhood. They are murderers - but they are victims, too. Don't forget this on your rage against humanity, because after killing the first murderer you are a murderer, too.

The only methods that should be used is the electric chair or 10 man firing squad in ALL 50 States. It costs way too much to keep one of these animals in prison for 40-50-60-years. Executions should take place within 20 days of sentencing, not 20 years with endless appeals. These monsters showed no mercy to their victims, no mercy should be shown to these monsters. Send them to HELL, I'm waiting!
