    I mean seriously?

    How can it take 2 hours to execute someone? A few minutes high dose of helium would do it or a massive dose of opiates.

    I hear the family arguing that they went through hell so who cares.

    I would say if society chooses to use that as a bar and partake in barbaric and torturous practises like this, it is questionable if society is any better.

    Beheading would be better , than a 2hour execution.

    Blame all those do-gooder anti death penalty people for this. A bullet to the head would be instant, but no they rather disallow such methods and force more "humane" methods such as lethal injections that have a higher chance of going wrong. Making those drugs difficult to get hold of makes the situation worse.

    It's disgusting, the practice should be banned outright - that's what EU countries are trying to achieve by banning the supply of certain chemicals.

    You wouldn't put a dangerous dog through a 2 hour death. Take them outside, put a couple of bullets in the back of their head and be done with it.

    It's not our place to interfere with the democratic decisions of another country. The will of the people in the US is to retain the death penalty. We have no right to mess with that.

    I don't agree with the death penalty. That aside, I believe a bullet to the head is more humane than the lethal injection. I find it disgusting that he was alive for two hours. Something is obviously massively wrong here.

    So let's just abolish all foreign policy, then? Seeing as that involves trying to influence other countries.

    It is our right to stop supplying the chemicals and to urge them to end the death penalty.

    There's a difference between influencing and imposing our values on countries who's people have chosen a different path.

    Urging is different to coercing.

    I think what they've done is horrible and inhumane.

    However if I was part of the victims family I would have no remorse.

    Should have shot his **** off and let him bleed to death- he was a double murderer for God's sake! The same should happen to paedophiles.

    We're not pointing any missles at them, that's coercion, it's just a matter of making things difficult as a means of voicing our objections. We have no obligation to supply a thing to any other country, we choose to, so surely we have a right to choose what we supply?

    And while the USA is executing people it is perfectly acceptable to coerce them into ending it.
