Apparently, following in Rick Perry’s footsteps by killing people through lethal injection is just too slow and burdensome for a Republican Representative in Florida. Who needs to waste time injecting three different levels of poison in a human being, putting them to sleep and stopping their heart beat, when you can just line them up and shoot?
Well, that’s exactly what the bill Brad Drake proposed will allow done to Death Row prisoners in Florida;
Saying it’s time to stop letting convicted killers “get off that easy,” a Florida state lawmaker wants to use firing squads or the electric chair for those on death row.
Rep. Brad Drake filed a bill this week that would end the use of lethal injection in Florida executions.
Instead, those with a death sentence would choose between electrocution or a firing squad.
Drake, a Republican, said the idea came to him after having a conversation with a constituent at a Waffle House over the legal battles associated with last month’s execution of Manuel Valle .
Valle’s lawyers tried to stop the execution by arguing that a new lethal drug cocktail would cause him pain and constitute cruel and unusual punishment.
So, to stop lawyers from arguing “cruel and unusual punishment,” Drake wants to line ’em up and shoot, or just fry ’em in the electric chair! Yay for morality!0
