Would you face the firing squad?

Asked by jeanmay (3419 points ) April 23rd, 2010

Under state law in Utah a condemned criminal convicted before 2004 has the choice of death by lethal injection or by firing squad. One such criminal has recently chosen to face the firing squad.

Why do you think one would choose such a death? Is there such a big difference between the two methods of execution? Is there a sure-fire way of killing a person immediately by firing squad, or is it somewhat trickier?

What would you choose?
