Utah May Bring Back Firing Squads; Cartoon Shows Liberals Are Freaking Out BIG TIME

No comments
The State of Utah is considering bringing back firing squads to execute prisoners if the courts rule the drugs currently used as “cruel and inhumane. As you might expect liberals are freaking out over this.
The cartoon below is a perfect example of liberal hysteria over this as the cartoonist equates the use of the firing squad to ISIS beheadings:
Here’s a more reasonable look from Guns.com at using firing squads to execute the most evil and vile prisoners for their crimes:
Utah did away with the firing squad option a few years back, in 2004. Lawmakers back then said giving the inmates the option to choose death by firing squad gave them too much media attention.
Even so, inmates sentenced before 2004 could opt to be shot. The last one was in 2010 when five officers blasted the condemned with .30-cal Winchester rifles.

Presently, proposed legislation would again allow inmates on death row to the option to be shot by a firing squad–which makes a lot of sense for a number of reasons.
I think one of the main reasons Utah is looking at reinstating death by firing squad is because it’s way cheaper.
The company who makes the ultra lethal concoction for “death by lethal injection” used by the state has been taking heat recently after it was proposed, and then championed by certain media forces, that the drug might cause pain before death.
With this claim came a slew of anti-death penalty lawsuits across the country and the cost of the drug is now sky high.
Sure, it’s also humane, if that’s your concern. Frankly, I feel that anyone who says lethal injection, firing squads or the electric chair are not humane should go ask the victims about the terror, pain and “humanity” they felt while they were being killed and since they can’t do that–because these people are dead–maybe they should speak with the family members whose loved ones were mutilated, raped, tortured and dismembered by these evil men on death row.
Killing a person is not a violation of the Eighth Amendment, which deals with cruel and unusual punishment. In this case, it’s executing the law.

Unfortunately though, it seems a lot of media folks who oppose capital punishment are too eager to report on the moans and pains of murderous inmates who struggled because the guy putting in the IV missed the vein the first time.
To them I say, concentrate on the stories we know are real: about why these murderers ended up on the executioner’s block in first place, and why their appeals were all denied for over seven years.
