May 17 - S.C. requiring death row inmates to choose firing squad or electric chair
 

 
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster signed a bill Monday to require death row inmates to choose between firing squad or the electric chair, as a lack of drugs for lethal injections has stalled executions, AP reports.

The big picture: State executions have been steadily dropping for two decades, as the U.S. generally shifted away from the punishment. South Carolina is moving in the opposite direction.

It has been 10 years since South Carolina last executed an inmate on death row. Lawmakers have said that's because pharmaceutical companies have refused to sell states the drugs to carry out lethal injections.
Worth noting: Lethal injection is still the primary method for executions under the law, but the state will mandate that prison officials can use an electric chair or firing squad if they don't have the drugs.

The big picture: 24 states have a death penalty law in place. Fewer than 50 death sentences have been imposed each year for the past six years. Biden opposes the death penalty and has said he wants to end its use.

Three other states — Mississippi, Oklahoma and Utah — allow firing squads to carry out executions, AP writes, citing the death Penalty Information Center.
Zoom in: Three South Carolina inmates had chosen an execution method — lethal injection — that the state was unable to carry out, due to a lack of drugs for lethal injection, AP reports.

While the electric chair is ready to use in the state, prison officials are still researching how firing squads operate in the three other states that allow them for executions.
Lawyers for the three inmates are considering suing, per AP.

The victims family should be the ones choosing. Why the fu*k would someone pick the worst option for themselves?

to be honest i would choose firing squad over lethal injection if given that option too. there's too many stories of people just being paralyzed and not dead. that's torturous. electric chair too, way too many possibilities for a fu*k up. just peace me the old fashioned way.

Especially with the U.S. Governments stance on allowing people to do a*sisted suicides and all that sh*t(Not saying I support a*sisted suicides at all smh, just saying)

Its like...you can't be dying from cancer and choose how you wanna go out, but if you go down to South Carolina and murder someone and lose the trial you....can?

It just seems stupid

It has more to do with heinous crimes. I think everyone agrees we gotta get them outta here. But people with cancer can still be a good citizen and pay the all important taxes.

I figure they want to squeeze as much out of someone with cancer as they can.

No fuss, no muss.

This is definitely a concern of mine, but if a person committed a gruesome series of murders and is found to be 100% guilty, I’m OK with the death penalty...

I work with wiring electrical components and testing them. I've taken jolts before, one of which has knocked me on my a*s (not at work) and that sh*t wasn't fun. I can't even imagine being electrocuted to death
