Televising Another Execution

So, early this morning I was rudely awoken by my alarm clock, which is set to a local radio station. Their topic for the morning show was the possibility of televising the executions of Sadam and Osama, if we ever actually capture him. Apparently TiVo did a survey of ten thousand people and over half of them actually wanted to see this.

So I decided to poll you, the public of PBN. Personally, I don't think it should be televised. But if it were to be televised atleast I don't HAVE to watch it. I thought broadcasting the Timothy Mcveigh execution was a little much, but then again I didn't have any real connection the Oklahoma City Bombing, not to mention I was ten years old when he actually did it.

life in prison > insta-death, in terms of punishment

Cost to me of life in prison of Saddam > cost to me for death of Saddam. I'm going to have to argue for the cheaper solution.

I would watch it.

I definetly think they should kill the fools. However, if it were to be televised, I sure as hell don't want it to be like the superbowl. Exposing all of those bare breasts and all. The very thought of it is ridiculous!

Mercantico - Thank you, sir.


Edit: I don't think they plan on killing Sadam, atleast yet. I think it was a hypothetical type of thang.

I think the debate would be more to let them suffer in prison for life or killing them quickly and efficiently.

Id watch it

I wouldn't mind watching Hussein die. When we catch Bin Laden, I don't think we should execute him. The Islamic Jihad terrorist guys would call him a martyr, and they would have more faith to do crazy stuff. We should just have him rot away in prison. Just my opinion though.

I think we should strap them both to a pole, side-by-side, in the middle of a desert somewhere, and let an Apache gunship take them out with its 20mm cannon from a couple miles away. Televised? Me thinks yes

I'd pay to see them execute anyone, the fact that it was Saddam or Bin Laden or some other america hater wouldn't change that in the least

I think they need to put them in prison and let all the big scary black men know they're there and make sure they have a lot of time to rape them every night. : )

I've watched in execution before. If they do it by lethal injection, he'll just lay there yelling stuff and then pass out and die, yay!

This is utterly stupid. Do you know what happens when you execute controversial people who have a fanatical following? They become martyrs. Especially osama bin laden who is a religious leader for islamist fanatics.

Televising it is even worse, it just glorifies the whole thing. That and I don't like the idea of people makeing money off this ****, People are going to be tripping over each other to get advertising space for the execution. Theres already enough profit involved with imprisoning people for big private prison companies, to the point where crime does pay if your in the business of locking people up. Which corrupts the whole justice system.
