Attorneys for Ricky Gray said in a federal complaint that there is a serious risk that Virginia will "chemically torture" the man to death when it uses compounded drugs for his execution scheduled for Jan. 18. A firing squad would be a more humane alternative, his attorneys argue, although that execution method isn't permitted under Virginia law."It is both humane, quicker, more effective, and would frankly be completely feasible in Virginia," Lisa Fried, an attorney for Gray, said of a firing squad.
If he would prefer a firing squad, let him have it. It would take away his chance of appealing the method of execution.
This is why things are going round and round in circles.There is far too much red tape and legal wrangling. The law is squarely on the side of the criminal and the only people who benefit are the lawyers who look for ways to get rich at the expense se of everyone else.It would be so simple if you got one appeal and then it was lights out by a method of your own choosing (with a default should you not choose)I know this cannot ever happen but what a great deterrent it would be!
