Meanwhile, in South Carolina

Ready… Aim… Fire!

The Gret Stet of South Carolina (usually the seething hotbed of unbridled lust) is un-retiring the firing squad:

The South Carolina Department of Corrections can now carry out executions by firing squad for death row inmates who choose the method, the department said Friday.

The state becomes just the fourth to allow the method, joining Mississippi, Utah and Oklahoma. Only three people have been executed by firing squad since 1976, according to NPR.

We note for the record that there no scheduled executions in SC… yet. But we wonder when they do have one, how this sort of savagery will play out with the white lace and smelling salts set.

    From what I understand there is a choice to be made by the lucky inmate between the electric chair, lethal injection, and now a firing squad. I’m guessing the Great state of South Carolina doesn’t want to pay the costs of a lifetime spent in prison…

      Do they offer all three at the same time? That would seem to be the logical choice it seems.

    And in other news, unconvicted murderer Kyle Rittenhouse sees a new career path to coincide with his interests.

    I should imagine that the white lace & smelling salts set would only object if they were not allowed to take a shot or two themselves. Or, you know, if the person in their scope does not suit their image of what a guilty person might look like – if you know what I mean, and I think that you do.

    I guess a well-placed bullet is quicker and less painful than some botched concoction of drugs bought from someone who couldn’t get a job counting pills at a Walgreen’s…

    when will someone introduce a bill to have them televised? then, bring back the quillotine. surely it’ll be a bigger draw, especially in some knitting circles.
