I don't really think it matters HOW the government decides to kill people, it's all pretty sickening. Beat them to death with a broom handle, gas them, electrocute them, it's all the same, it's the government deciding who gets to live and who gets to die.
Actually it's the jury who decides the punishment during a separate phase of the trial if/when guilt is established. The death penalty is only an available option; another new one that's more palatable to the jurors, is 'life without the possibility of parole'.
While it's never a pleasant prospect to put another to death; it's 100% insurance against recidivism. Other nations have their own policies, and as such we have to respect them. If the Norwegians turn him loose, and he kills again; they will have brought it on their own society.
A point of interest, 'Old Sparky' (our electric chair has it's own name) is now a museum piece. Lethal injection took it's place, and it is far more humane than the sort of death that the victims usually suffer. ....James.
But I am extraordinarily lucky. I have only had minor infringements imposed on my freedom of choice and I don't have to compromise my beliefs or attitudes very much or very often.
