    Default What is wrong with extra innings?



    Every now and again topics on the news puzzle me.
    The latest one is,
    If a state or government sets about a task. And the planned end result of that task is the death of a person in state or government custody. And at the end of the planned task, the person is dead.
    Why do some call the activity “Botched”, when the person ends up dead as planned?

    Do these same people complain when those Sunday tennis contests on TV last 3+ hours?
    Or when they go to a Base Ball Game and it goes into extra innings?

    Anyone who has worked in hospitals and observed people in Critical condition, the 'gasping' effect they talked about on TV regarding this guys death occurs what a patient is in a comma and his brain is dying due to lack of O2. The are not awake or aware, it is just the natural process as one dies in this way. If he had been awake or aware, he would have been vocalizing.

    This is just the 'bleeding heart' press sensationalizing the death of a murder!

    They could have saved a lot of time and headache if they would have just used a firing squad, hanging or electric chair.

    Things that make me go HMMMMM.......

    The fact that when we go to the vet to have a dog put down, it's over in under a minute and the dog exhibits no sign of pain. Why is it different for humans?-Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.

    I too wonder why they never talk about how the CRIMINAL'S victims suffered or what their families went through because of their loss. The "botched" execution in Oklahoma was a prime example. That murderer buried her alive and it was rarely mentioned when they "reported" his execution. Makes me sick how victims and their families are brushed aside in these stories.

    I believe my vet told me that it was phenobarbital, that is used to euthanize pets.

    Always believed if Capital punishment were to have any benefit, it would be done in public and televised on National TV networks.

    Yes Vets may give a sedative first to calm a nervous dog down, but they got the amount of phenobarbital dose by weight a science.

    I hope every criminal put to death is subject to a longer and more painful death than their victims.
