I have trouble understanding why a criminal sentenced to death is allowed to choose the execution vehicle. In South Carolina's case, they have been unable to perform lethal injections since the drugs are currently not available, which means that all those sentenced to death immediately choose lethal injection. I think the jury should decide the means of death. If I was on the jury for one of these child killers, I would vote for firing squad using shotguns with high capacity mags and #8 shot.....keep banging away until they are done.

You kind of need to ask yourself, Would you be a part of a firing squad?

I believe unless one of mine was a victim I'd allow that opportunity to pass.

Some people do need to be shot. Treasonous people for sure.

One is always loaded with blanks.

We keep hearing that the drugs are not available. If any of us can have surgery and be put to sleep the drugs are available. The only difference is the dose. So the FDA hasn't cleared the drug for execution, big deal. We all know that we can humanely (I hate that term) put our pets down when needed. I have no problem with firing squads but who has ammo?

Warden should be allowed to choose, not even the jury or judge.
