Which is the most humane method of giving death penalty ?

Post by ashdoc on Sun Dec 04, 2011 2:44 am

Without going into the debate whether death penalty itself is wrong , lets think about a humane method of death penalty .

The reason is that I read in a book written by a muslim author that the Saudi Arabian method of beheading a person is much more humane as the person dies instantly , while the Indian method of hanging a person is much more barbaric as the person takes 2 minutes to die , and is left chocking and writhing to death for 2 minutes .

Also barbaric is the electric chair , as the person literally ' fries ' to death . Also electric chair is messy , and those who have witnessed it say that the person can be seen visibly writhing with pain due to the electric current . Also it is messy .

I think that the condemned person should be given general anaesthesia just like a patient about to be operated is to be given , and after he is unconsious , he should be given lethal injection . As he is already unconsious due to general anaesthesia , he will not feel a thing , just like a patient undergoing operation under general anaesthesia does not feel a thing .

What say ??

i think anesthesia followed by lethal injection is the most humane. but what sort of an example are we setting by being humane to convicted criminals? there was a case in california recently where a death row convict abused the last meal of your choice privilege by ordering a dozen items and he never ate one of them. the privilege was revoked after that incident for all death row inmates. when convicts display such apparent disdain for any act of kindness, there should be no mercy shown to them -- on the contrary, a relatively barbaric system of killing should send a message of deterrence to them.
