I’m not usually a fan of the block-quoting epidemic in blogging these days. Today, I make an exception. I’ll let the quotes do all the talking.
From the Northwest Florida Daily News:
State Rep. Brad Drake filed a bill Tuesday that would eliminate lethal injection as a method for execution in Florida. Instead, people facing the death penalty would be allowed to choose execution by firing squad.
Now for the bombshell:
So, I say let’s end the debate. We still have Old Sparky. And if that doesn’t suit the criminal, then we will provide them a .45 caliber lead cocktail instead.

I am sick and tired of this sensitivity movement for criminals. Every time there is a warranted execution that is about to take place, some man or woman is standing on a corner holding a sign, yelling and screaming for humane treatment.
I have no desire to humanely respect those that are inhumane.
I really hope this man is making a bad joke…
