I COULD but it's not something I'd particularly enjoy. And I'm sure it wouldn't pay enough to make it worthwhile. For sure being an executioner is a thankless job. You're killing someone, regardless of their crimes. Try going home to your family after that without being somehow affected. It's easy to sit on the sideline and say that we'd enjoy it, speaking from an emotional POV. I'd imagine that it's an entirely different story if/when you're the one whose throwing the switch. And if the person doing it is emotionally involved and 'enjoys' the act of killing murderers, then he shouldn't be in that position for professional and ethical reasons. I'd be willing to bet most executioners don't love what they do, but it's something that needs to be done. And thank God they're there to do it.
