People on death row are asking for the electric chair because lethal injections seem to not really be working very quickly.
There is a very fast and painless method of suicide, well publicised but I obviously won't name it here, which takes a few seconds for the person to fall unconscious and then they are dead within about a minute. That's using home made equipment.
Why on earth does the US government or state authorities just authorise this simple euthanasia method rather than going for those other two options, neither of which fill me with confidence in terms of how painless it will be?
Is it because it's related to use of a gas so they're worried about comparisons with nazi germany or something? Really don't understand.
