Execute Painfully?

“Why make executions more painful? People were burnt at the stake, drawn and quartered, skinned alive, beheaded and more. None of that has deterred more murders.

We as a society try to execute humanely. Not for the sake of the criminal but for society’s own sake because it is supposed to be about justice and not revenge.”   -LaDon Aridge quoted in USA TODAY, May 2, 2014
