If you were on death row, would you want to die by firing sqaud, lethal injection or the electric chair? I think lethal injection would be the easiest. I also think firing sqaud would be the fastest. There's no way I'd pick the chair. What would you pick and why?

Jeez, you really want those organs so you can make a final decision, don't ya camomom! If it came to this, I think the lethal injection would be the least distressing. Yes the firing squad option would be quick, but with the injection you would just go to sleep and never wake up. The electric chair definitely sounds like the most horrific of the lot.

Great movie! Penn and Sarandon are excellent in it. Can you imagine having to take that walk to the chamber and hearing those words said over and over again??

Very good and movie! I was watching The Green Mile as I read your posting! I often wonder what prompts some people to ask the questions than they do....Ummm ... On second thought now that I think about it.... No! In some cases I do not want to know! That would definitely be too much information!

Hey camomom! What a cheery discussion you have picked! I would want to go by lethal injection of course! It is painful and you just go to sleep! That's how they put animals down! It is painless and to me way too humane for a murder! I personally think they should endure a more torturous method!

You're right byt I think it would depend on the crime and the evidence against them. I wouldn't want to torture someone unless I knew for sure that they deserved it.

Lethal injection is the most humane because they put you to sleep first, so you don't really feel a thing, then they give you things that just shut down your brain and heart functions, but you are completely unaware that it is happening, so that is the route that I would choose as well. Being shot at would be very painful. The chair would just be aweful.

Supposedly when you are shot, the area goes numb. If that's true, Think about being shot multiple times all at once. Would you just go numb and die? If it's true, I don't think it would be that painful. I still think I'd rather do lethal injection, just incase.

injection, I haven't heard of any failures for that method yet

I haven't either. I guess I'd want to make sure it would truly work too.

Well, if you're giving me a choice, I would have to say none thank you! but if I have to choose one, I too would have to go with lethal injection. Simply because I believe this would be the easiest way to go. In fact I believe in it. Not necessarily for criminals, because I believe we can always make a mistake and get the wrong guy. I believe in euthanasia, because I do think that lethal injection is a peaceful way to die. With lethal injection, they relax you, then they put you to sleep and then they stop your heart. It is a three step process and by the time they actually get around to killing you, you're already mellow from the tranquilizer, and then fall asleep, and then they stop your heart. Personally, I like not knowing where or when my number will come up, but, if I have to know and be fully aware, my vote is definitely for lethal injection. That's just my 2ยข worth. Happy Mylotting!

Thank you. That was very well thought out. I also believe in euthenasia for the ill and animals when it's needed to end suffering.

Oh my it's hard to pick either one of them but I need to because I was answering your discussion. I prefer to pick lethal injection. But before it was administer into my viens please give me a shot of sleeping injection first for I don't know when i was going to die because I was sleeping. At first i was in the middle of my dreams and need not to come back. Ghost, I don't want this to happen to me...... I'm scared

That would be my choice too. Put me to sleep before putting me to sleep, so to speak.

I'd choose lethal injection because it would might not be exactly painless but it's probably the one with the least physical struggle. I believe that one should not struggle to die.

I agree with you.
