But things are not so simple.
That is why the debate rages on throughout the world on the issue.

Then came a truly infernal invention - the Chair of Death. The method is still performed in Utah and Idaho, as an alternative to lethal injection.. To carry out executions, the prisoner is tied to a chair with leather straps across the waist and head. The doctor locates the heart and attaches a circular target. At a distance of 20 feet are five shooters. Each of them aims a rifle through a crack in the canvas and shoots. The prisoner dies as a result of loss of blood caused by the rupture of the heart or large blood vessel, or rupture of the lungs... If the arrows miss the heart, accidentally or intentionally, sentenced dies a slow death ..
Composition of lethal injection has developed physician Stanley Deutsch. It consists of three chemical components. The first ingredient - Sodium Pentothal - sentenced plunges into a deep sleep. . Pavulon, paralyzes the muscles. Finally, potassium chloride stops the heart muscle. After the examination of the University of Texas, this method has been approved. He soon became widespread. The opponents of the death penalty gave him the name "Texas cocktail. Today the 38 states that after 1976 re-entered on its territory the death penalty, only Nebraska does not resort to injection, preferring them to the electric chair.
Is human society still civilised? There surely must be a more productive, more humane way to 'punish'.
