Thank god they switched to lethal injection, its so much more humane.
I’m remembering a song from the 101st airborne "Gory, gory, what a helluva way to die"
That’s a shocking picture, everyone just waiting and watching.
Fuck I’d hate to be the guy to pioneer that
I’ve never understood how electrocution could be seen as more humane than hangings, hangings are pretty quick, you drop down and die instantly, but here you literally electrocute someone to death, having them suffer for 20-30 seconds until they die, idk it just seems like a step backward to me 🤷♂️
