Resource: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/political-fix/article_2a60d84c-f66b-5262-9da9-bb2a59264c81.html
A Bill proposed by Sponsor: Brattin, Rick Co-Sponsor: Fitzwater, Paul HB 1470 would bring back the firing squad in the state of Missouri. Bill sponsor Rep. Rick Brattin said adding a firing squad option would offer the state another way to carry out executions in light of pharmaceutical companies’ halting sale of drugs for executions.

Quoted: “People look at inmates who will be executed as victims,” Fitzwater said. “But the real victims have no voice because they are gone.”

well you sorta of took me out of context there, but thats okay. my point was, i am not a fan of the death penalty as it stands. it isn't dont correctly...if only as you point out that it takes too long.

my apogees... I live in a state that puts more people to death than any other and still not enough. right now we have a Mexican immigrant from Mexico that shot a cop in Houston 20 years ago and still has not been put to death. I can understand the process but these convicts have nothing but time to write letters and tie up the legal system trying to give some form of doubt and get a new court date.

if your caught with a smoking gun and your are convicted...... "HANG THEM HIGH"
