Death Penalty

Utah is considering adding the firing squad to it's methods of execution.  Right now they only have lethal injection as a method.  The problem is that European nations that don't support the death penalty won't sell the drugs in the United States so that states cannot execute prisoners.

Lethal injection is wrong.  It should not be used to execute prisoners.  Doctors should have the job of saving lives, not taking lives.  Therefore medical procedures should never be a source of execution.  I do believe in the death penalty.  Many murderers deserve the death penalty.  I think those who commit sex crimes should also be executed on the third conviction.

There are fewer than a dozen on death row in Utah.  This in a state with an average of 45 murders per year.  In ten years that's 450 murders, yet few than a dozen on death row.  I think they should be executing many more prisoners; first degree murder should almost always bring a death sentence; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
