Wouldn’t this be considered cruel and unusual? What if you don’t die immediately? Just stand there bleed out till you do?
Yes, I'm now a ? Block. Now how do I stop people from punching me thinking they will get power-ups?

I'm fine with firing squad, but I thought the electric chair was banned what the f***?

The choice should be firing squad or lethal injection imo. Though there are those completely against the death penalty, which is understandable.

Next matter on the agenda - selling the right to join the firing squads.

Followed by a TV deal.

This is why I chose my username... ffs
though I honestly don't know if it's less more cruel than the injection...

Actually,it may be the least cruel of the 3 (chair, injection and firing squad).
But they're all cruel

Yeah it's kind of messed up, but I'll take it over a random chemical cocktail that potentially will cause you to be in extreme pain and misery while you're dying.

It might be even more sadistic than that.

It has inmates choose between firing squads and the electric chair.

That's because they haven't been able to execute people for years because they can't get the chemicals for lethal injection. The entire point of this is removing the loophole that keeps them from being able to execute people by keeping inmates from choosing the method that can't be done.
