Bring back firing squads? We do worse
Bungled executions by lethal injection are beginning to make firing squads look good. Seriously.
I did not always feel this way. I'm an opponent of the death penalty.
But with lethal-injection drugs in short supply and new questions being raised about their effectiveness, a seemingly humane form of execution is looking a lot less palatable than such old-fashioned methods as the rope or a team of sharpshooters.
