You Want Painless, How About the Guillotine?


RALEIGH, N.C. Lawyers for a condemned inmate are objecting to the state's proposal to use a brain wave monitor to be sure the execution is as painless as possible.
In a filing in U-S District Court, attorneys for 61-year-old Willie Brown Junior say the state's plan to use a bispectral index monitor to be sure Brown is unconscious doesn't comply with the court's order.

Brown was sentenced to death for the 1983 slaying of a woman during a convenience store robbery in Martin County and is scheduled to die next week.

Correction officials told a judge that a doctor and a nurse normally in the execution chamber's observation room would watch the monitor as well as a heart monitor and order more drugs if Brown showed signs of wakefulness.

The judge said he would stop the execution if he weren't satisfied that Brown would be unconscious when fatal drugs were administered and that properly trained medical personnel were present.

I'm getting tired of all the fuss about death row inmates and their laywers cry about the pain they might, not will but just possibly might feel during the lethal injection process. Suck it up and take your medicine (pun not intended). You gave no concern about the pain your victims went through so why should we care about yours?

If you want a quick and painless death then request the guillotine.
