    Without going into the debate whether death penalty itself is wrong , lets think about a humane method of death penalty .

    The reason is that I read in a book written by a muslim author that the Saudi Arabian method of beheading a person is much more humane as the person dies instantly , while the Indian method of hanging a person is much more barbaric as the person takes 2 minutes to die , and is left chocking and writhing to death for 2 minutes .

    Also barbaric is the electric chair , as the person literally ' fries ' to death . Also electric chair is messy , and those who have witnessed it say that the person can be seen visibly writhing with pain due to the electric current . Also it is messy .

    I think that the condemned person should be given general anaesthesia just like a patient about to be operated is to be given , and after he is unconsious , he should be given lethal injection . As he is already unconsious due to general anaesthesia , he will not feel a thing , just like a patient undergoing operation under general anaesthesia does not feel a thing .

    What say ??

    Hanging is the most humane method, it renders the condemned unconscious immediately, even before the rope tightens around the neck due to shock. Death comes quickly after the cervical vertebrae is fractured. The condemned doesn't choke to death in judicial hanging.

    Killing when the person is sleeping by injection poison.

    But death penalty is always given in some cases which usually involves inhumane acts, so i think a bullet to the head is the best and a quick death and deserving.

    Some years ago GoI tried to replace hanging with Lethal Injection but some doctors & medical bodies protested against it.
    In US all except 2 states use lethal injection.

    Hands down lethal injection. The condemned person first slips into a painless coma (unconsciousness), and then dies.

    The body has no structural damage (like in case of hanging or firing squad), or superficial damage (like electric burns in case of electric executions) and so the last rites can be performed peacefully, and to the whole body.

    The whole objective is to kill the person in accordance with law, so justice is delivered. The other methods tread into areas of retribution, which is anything but humane.

    Retribution is the evil twin of justice.

    Humane?

    Scare the chap so badly that he has a heart attack!

    He dies on his own and none is responsible!

    Sedate, take out vital organs(which can be useful) and kill them when they are unconscious.

    They are all Badass , but still can be utilise them . No need to kill them .

    I think , send them to military training camp on some unknown island .

    Train them and use them , the same way as France use their French Foreign Legion .

    some thing from wiki :
    The purpose of the foreign legion was to remove disruptive elements from society and put them to use fighting the enemies of France. Recruits included failed revolutionaries from the rest of Europe, soldiers from the disbanded foreign regiments, and troublemakers in general, both foreign and French. Algeria was designated as the foreign legion's home.

    French Foreign Legion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Send them to Pakistan.

    Oh sorry, that would be the most inhumane way of death penalty.

    Apologies for this post.

    For someone like Kasab,

    Day 1 - Pull his nails out.
    Day 2 - Chop his arms off. Treat him to stop the bleeding. Keep him alive.
    Day 3 - Chop his legs off below the knee. Treat him to stop the bleeding. A bullet in each knee cap. Keep him alive
    Day 4 - Gouge his eyes out, puncher his ear drums.
    Day 5 - Break his ribs
    Day 6 - Feed him a nice spicy meal
    Day 7 - Impale him - Feed his body to the crows.

    And this would still be a very humane way of killing him.

    Firing squad is my preferred method of getting terrorists killed. Not just that but having them taped and send the video like a viral disease around through grey markets to intended targets.

    Firing Squad is an honorable method of execution, it must not be used against terrorists.

    why not use their own bomb, just make them sit on it and blow it by remote and post the video on youtube for all to see.
