They are using lethal injection. Too bad they can't use a more fitting method like a firing squad with bad aim.

True. lethal injection is too soft on brutal people like that. (IMO)
They just get to nod off to sleep, unlike their victims.

A necktie party at the Gray Bar Hotel sounds better to me.

Same same for the Fort Hood schmuck.

Unless they can't find a vein.

And there are a few ways to look at it.

A firing squad or hanging are quick and relatively painless.

Mentally, I think L.I. is more trying... you have to watch them stick the needles in you.... you watch the chemicals come out.... I believe in the death penalty but think it's effed up to think about dying.

He was declared dead at 9:11 p.m. ET, said Larry Traylor, director of communications for the Virginia Department of Corrections.

"There were no complications," Traylor told reporters outside the Greenville Correctional Center. "Mr. Muhammad was asked if he wished to make a last statement. He did not acknowledge this or make a last statement whatsoever."

Leave out the Sodium thiopental, and lethal injection would be a far more deserving death.

I know that this dude was messed up and that his punishment was to be executed, but its very disheartening to see people here cheering for and celebrating his death.

Would you still feel the same way if one of the victims was of one your children, or one of your parents?

I probably would have done the same for Hitler if I was alive in 1945. I don't think its celebrating but sort of 'good ridence'.

See to me using the death penalty as a form of revenge is just government sponsored murder. Its no different then if you went out on your own and killed the offender. Its about vengeance not justice

Yup. And I feel it's the victim's right to exact revenge. Considering they can't get to him in prison, it's up to the state to do. It's all about revenge.

And that makes it murder, and makes us no better or different than him.

Killing is wrong, and how does the government prove it? By killing the killer. Its hypocrisy in its highest form.

Killing is done for different reasons. Killing a killer or killing in self defense or killing in war is not equivalent to some guy that randomly snipes innocent people just going about their business. It's not a black and white issue. I have no problem with revenge killing if the person in question is responsible for senselessly murdering innocent people.

To me, this guy turned his back on the acceptable norms of our society. He certainly wasn't interested in the rights of those people he murdered and he certainly places no value on human life. He would have continued murdering innocent people if given the chance. There is no rehabilitation for a sociopath like that. He established his own standards regarding life, and he died by them too.
