A 9mm pistol round in the back of the head works just as well.

I also think filling the job of executioner should be filled by conscription. All other methods of execution are designed specifically for people to kid themselves about the guilt of what they have done.

Personally I think each death row prison should have a separate modern “death chamber” constructed on site so as to facilitate the sentence of death by “Claymore.”

The walls would of course be made of 1” thick high tensile steel and “blast vents” would have to be included in the ceilings and floor to release the expanding gases from the explosive charges.

The person to be executed would be shackled to a thin but strong pole running from floor to ceiling in the execution chamber. A ring of 6-8 Claymore anti-personnel mines would then be erected around the condemned at a distance of about nine feet.

Of course to keep things politically correct the manufactured inscription on the Claymores will have to be changed from “Front, Towards Enemy” to something more neutral like “Front, Towards Convicted Felon.”

To supporters of the death penalty this should provide a level of satisfaction never achieved previously by any former execution method. Hanging when done correctly snaps the neck cleanly rendering the felon incapable of twisting or jerking in an entertaining fashion. The same can be said about a properly organized firing squad only more so. A person tied to a pole simply cannot fall down face first in a satisfying manner.

Don’t even get me started on the disappointment faced by those witnessing an execution via the gas chamber or lethal injection. Neither execution method is even worthy of attendance or viewing by any true aficionado of lethal retribution methods.

That is why I am proposing that the death by Claymore standard be made a recognized option for legislatures struggling to find a “humane” yet intensely satisfying method of killing people.

Just imagine it, this would be an execution style worthy of being included in a Michael Bay movie! It would have the advantage of being an instantaneous (no in-politically correct suffering) kill but at the same time would include spattering gobbets of felon flesh!

Think about it, wouldn’t you like to see an actual “blood mist” in real life instead of just on your computer monitor or game console connected T.V. screen? You can, but only if you support my “death by Claymore” proposal with your local legislature!

3 First As Tragedy, Then As Farce  Sat, Jan 18, 2014 12:15:27pm

If we’re going to insist on being The Big Stupid Thing That Eats The Future, we might as well do it The American Way and go all-out with corporate sponsorships, a pre- and post-execution parade and play-by-play voiced by loud meat-heads with those stupid, unnecessarily large NFL-style microphone headsets, etc etc.

Shamelessly stole those ideas from George Carlin, I see…

Firing squad works for me as would the guillotine. Only I’d suggest using the German version, since that proved the fastest and most error free.

The lawmaker proposing this bill should be assigned the first shooting, since he’s so gung-ho about it. Looking down the barrel of a rifle at a real, live human being might give him pause to think whether any execution method is humane, or even necessary.

No matter what form you endorse, you’re endorsing state murder of innocents.

re: #7 Uncle Obdicut

I think we should just stick with life without parole. The death penalty is a burden on too many levels. Moral, judicial, global reputation.

But you overstate it. Else why bother with the trials, the appeals, the mandatory reviews? Capitol punishment supporters are backing it in the context of a robust judicial system that is extremely careful about the death penalty, particularly at the Federal level.

The state does not murder. It punishes. Equating capitol punishment for Tim McVeigh with a convicted hit mans work makes no sense to me.

Why is jail not enough?

It’s a busy Sunday for me so I subscribed to the thread.

Well,it looks like the little rascals can still cause mischief even in the lockup. Now maybe if they redefined the terms of life-without-parole…

re: #8 Political Atheist

Eventually, in any system of judicial execution, an innocent person gets put to death, with premeditation, by the state.

I really don’t give a shit about the semantics of what that’s called.

Well if I follow & apply the logic of how you said it to lesser crimes, we are all endorsing kidnapping and false imprisonment. Since innocents can get arrested and serve time despite the strength of innocent until proves guilty.

Responsible for our judicial system? Yes we are. Endorsing the murder of innocents? Not really.

Added EDIT- Yes our system gets it wrong sometimes. Some states especially. I agree that happens. And it’s tragic. And a part of why I think we should refrain.

IMHO the conditions in our prisons are at least as big a deal as capitol punishment.

Kind of. The difference is you can’t make restitution for killing someone. But given our current scheme of prosecutors as politicians, we are all somewhat complicit in a lot of horrible stuff.
