California Won't Resume Executions This Year

May 04, 2011  | 

The state of California will postpone executions for any of the 713 condemned inmates on death row until at least 2012.

The request by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to delay review of newly revised lethal-injection protocols until January at the earliest follows a decision last week by Gov. Jerry Brown to scrap plans to build a new death row facility at San Quentin State Prison.

Aw come on. These sorry excuses of human miscreants need to be put out of the taxpayers misery. Screw the lethal injection, bring back the firing squad. It's messy either way, they still sh#t in their pants when it happens.

Hey i've got an idea. Instead of wasting time AND MONEY to review the new "protocol", how about we, and stick with me here, how about we go with an easy approach? Yes, there is such a thing; its called a bullet. About 37 cents give or take. Here's the new protocol; insert one bullet into the weapon. Point the weapon at the heart/head of the offender. Pull trigger. Repeat until desired effect, or death row population decreases to 0. Mind blowing isn't it? Stop wasting money. Kill the bastards.
