Don't want to start a debate on the rights and wrongs of the death penalty here, just a discussion about this particular case..........

"Barring the success of any final appeals, Ronnie Lee Gardner will be strapped into a chair, have a target pinned over his heart and die in a hail of bullets from five anonymous marksmen armed with .30-caliber rifles and firing from behind a ported wall."

I don't care what this guy did, just... absolute props to these people using a firing squad. Fucking awesome. Not sure why they're putting him in a chair, though.

He chose, I read.

I would have my hands tied and have myself blindfolded, make my last request a cigarette and shout "iVIVA LA REVOLUCIÓN!" after the call to fire.

I would either request a five-man single-shot firing squad to shoot me from 10 yards with a red brick wall behind me, or a circular ten man firing squad.

This, minus blindfold. I want them to look me in the eye and vice versa.

I wouldn't ask for an appeal myself. Die in a cell or die by a bullet, whatever. Doesn't have much different.

I would have watched Grandma's Boy.

Anyway, I tried to find a clip from "You can't do that on television" from back in the day with the firing squads. Pure hilarity.

Lol, nice choice. There is nothing wrong with it. Noble ending, and the guys who kill him will feel guilt. Interesting if not ridiculous.

Firing squad. Awesome. It's rare these days. Beheadings too. I don't know the details of what he did, so I'm just going to assume that he is guilty of a capital crime. Good to be done with him and not having to pay for his imprisonment anymore.

They shoot the heart and not the head? You don't die immediately if hit in the heart?

Not sure why they're putting him in a chair, though.

So he won't fall and hurt himself.

Awesome. And don't sit on a chair, stand up. laugh.gif

I'd ask for 9 hours of sex, but 9 hours of LotR are awesome too.

I will watch the whole series of Band of Brother or if it's not allowed then Saving Private Ryan. to get in the mood of getting shot.

that chair is epic. looks like a normal electric chair with sandbags next to it. suppose it could be re used. I wonder if they get a prize if each bullet is within the target?

Dunno about his last 'wish' but he watched 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy and ate lobster, steak and vanilla ice cream.

I'd ask for Dick Chaney to be part of my firing squad. My last words would be "Look Out! Duck!", and he'd take out the rest of the squad. At least i'd get lols before i die.

You know, Cheney catches a lot of flak over that, but the fact of the matter is, shooting someone in the face is fucking hilarious.

You absolute child.
