    .... Time To Change The Death Penalty ...

     
    With the recent execution in Ohio of Dennis McGuire its time to reconsider how we execute our death row prisoners. McGuire who was found guilty of rape and murder of a young 8 month pregnant woman was given a two drug lethal cocktail. According to witnesses he gasped for air for about 25 minutes before expiring. Previously the State of Ohio used a three drug cocktail but the European manufacturers stated they would cut off supplies of these drugs to America if they were continued to be used for executions.

    So what method should we use ? I propose we go back to a firing squad. The members of the squad would be the top five senior elected officials of the state. The Governor, Lieutenant Governor and heads of both chambers of the legislative body.
