Finally the "Bali Bombers" are going to face the firing squad in not too long, finally justice will be served.
So is anyone against the executions?

Even though I'm not against the death penalty, I think you're approaching this whole thing from the wrong perspective.
Saying stuff like, "Fire Away" just makes you look heartless

I think hanging would be more appropriate. Firing squads are for spies.

My take on these things is that such a trait is only considered bad because the people looking at it are themselves heartless and for their own sake would seek to make that person be 'heartful'.
At any rate though, a thread title is nothing but a title that has something to do with the subject. I doubt it was put there to dliberately express any viewpoint.

The firing squad was the best option in my view, they made the victims feel pain, so now its their turn.

I don't know who they are. They may want us to want them death to give false sense of security.

You really think shooting someone in the head (and therefore instantly killing the person) makes them feel pain?

Really?

It's not the head, it's the heart but it does kill them on the spot.

A drop from gallows breaks necks. The noose then tightens in short order, blocking the major arteries and veins in the neck as well as the windpipe.

Pain enough.

That's what "blocking the windpipe" means. Please learn to read. D;

Are you people writers for Saw for something? GORE.

I personally think either lethal injection or gallows should be used, instead of firing squad. Firing squad hurts to think about.

They don't deserve a firing squad, thats a soldiers execution and a waste. Hang them, inject them whatever I don't care if they feel pain or not just get rid of them.

He was talking about the fring squad.

But yeah, could someone post a link giving details of what this is all over? Being in Britain I don't know quite what this is referring to and hence cannot give an opinion.

I'm against it. To be honest, I think a Saw-type punishment would be far more appropriate. Let them suffer properly. Death is far too good for people like that. Psychological torment coupled with physical pain seems a far more effective way of dealing with things to me. To be honest, I think society is too soft with those that break its rules, which is why so many people do. If they were enforced properly, with SEVERE consequences for those who did things like this, then perhaps so many people wouldn't do these things. You never know.

They set bombs and killed some people. If you don't know anything about the topic, why are you posting here? ;

Why don't we be like Norway? In Norway they have an island where every law breaker goes and people chose to stay. You can came and go when ever you what. Maybe the best way to deture crime is to let the people feel apart of the community instead of imprisoning or killing them.

PS. I post here because I still have stuff to say.

I'm kind of for and against the death penalty. On one hand, it doesn't seem like using the excuse that one person killed another person is good enough to kill that person in turn. It seems barbaric to me, like society is just as bad as the criminal. On the other hand, it's a deterrent, and if people choose to ignore the ramifications of their actions it throws into question whether they are truly evil, or "unfixable," if you will.

Then there's the whole prison over-crowding thing and whatnot. We're running out of room stateside. That and it costs more to keep people in prison for life than to kill them.

Gah. Complex subjects are difficult to entertain when I'm trying to enjoy my weekend. '

Just kill them, why should they live? Who pays for the prison buildings, their food, their water and all their facilities? Who pays to keep them alive? We do. Their not putting anything back into society by being in jail, their just taking from us so lets not bother keeping them alive and just kill them. They have lost their right to live by taking other peoples lives. No we are not as barbaric as they are, they set off a bomb and killed many innocents who had done nothing wrong, we are killing these few to bring justice, they are not innocent. It dosn't matter how they die or if they feel pain; preferably the quickest, easiest way to kill them and just get rid of them; There it's done.

Why not kill the lame ass losers who go out of their way to hurt others? I'm all for living life but don't stop others living theirs. It could only improve the quality of the human race...Although not a whole lot to reduce it

Capital punishment is pretty expensive. I know for a fact that in the US its much cheaper to put someone in prison for life than have them put to death.

As much as I despise people who do these kind of things, I can't say I support their execution. Executing these men does not help anyone, I remember in the news reports the men were happy they were being executed, they believed that they would be rewarded for their acts.

Capital punishment is inhumane. :(
