If we are going to continue the tenuous bacteria analogy, isn't it possible that we will breed a species of Super-criminal, who are not only resistant to the electric chair, but also too small for the naked eye to see? They will flourish in the back of my fridge, and eventually give me an upset stomach when I eat a bit of cheese that has progressed from "Mature" to "Alive"?


Is it possible THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED???

The is, if you weren't being serious.
You wait till they commit a crime and then remove them from the gene pool by incarceration or the death penalty of course.

It's not perfect but the worlds not perfect so anything else would be worse.

You must understand I'm discussing the realities of what we do and it's effects not advocating any position.

I think that would take longer than we have before we're hit by a planet killing meteorite or the sun snuffs out.

Plus there's no mechanism with the electric chair bit, much like you get antibiotic resistant bacteria but not bleach resistant bacteria the chair would need to be less than 100% effective for it to happen.

The justice system however, not being 100% effective will inevitably improve the abilities of criminals to evade capture.

Or it would if we locked them up prior to breeding age, perhaps that's the true reason for all the teen pregnancies we get now??

Actually, you may recall that the electric chair isn't 100% effective. At least the first one certainly wasn't. Took several goes to do the man in.

I think that's why most states with a death penalty have moved to the lethal injection.

Well, every person put in it dies, wether by the chair or by other means, they don't go on to create a pool of electric resistant humans so from a genetic point of view the process is 100% effective.

Only because they haven't found the electric-chair resistant strain of criminal yet. Because they are too small.

I think hanging out in the refrigerator has slowed down their electrons.

To begin with, I am not an advocate of the chair but your reasons for not wanting to use it are a touch flawed.
The first chair was used in Aug of 1890. Not last year, not 20 years ago. It's history is on wiki.

I could find no other reference to failed electric chair executions. The change to lethal injection came as a result of the public wanting to be more human in killing some one. Same reason the guillotine was dropped. Both did a great job but made us feel no better than it did the person we did in. Just a small point in a senseless thread.
