Utah wants to bring back execution by firing squad as a more humane alternative to lethal injection

Even though lethal injection has been used in the US for decades as a “more humane” way of sentencing people to death, the practice has come under heavy scrutiny in the past several years as being just the opposite of humane. Chemical mixtures differ by state, chemistry reacts differently in each person, and if the exact things aren’t given at exactly the right time, an inmate may die a horribly painful, violent death instead of being quietly ushered into the great beyond. And even chemicals that are used correctly often cause intense pain to an inmate, even if the person is unable to express it. So as an alternative, Utah wants to bring back the firing squad— it’s quick, it’s pretty much guaranteed to do the job and there’s nothing too complicated about the whole process.
