The Bill seems OK but more money would be saved by stopping the feeding of the prisoner 3 weeks before the date of execution. Reduced food bill and elminate the expense of a hangman.
Note though, that juveniles and servicemen stand a good chance of avoiding the ultimate deterrent. I propose an amendment in which juveniles are notionally aged by 21 years and service felons receive a back-dated discharge from the forces to a month before the crime. The latter part of the amendment will save even more money.
It is too expense to kill some body: It costs $500,000 to execute somebody by electrecution, and $200,000 to execute somebody through lethal injection. It is also too expensive to keep somebody in prison: It costs an average of $25,000 per year to keep somebody jailed. The bill will save a lot of money for the government.
By cutting off the food supply of the offender, you are forcing a re-calculation of the drop required to snap his neck efficiently. I say feed up the offender, give him too much drop and rip his head clean off. It means a messy pit, but hey!, thats showbiz!
49 convicts stood against the wall, national lottery, each ball represents a convict, bonus ball decides method of death, ie 1 to 10 is hanging, 11 to 20 is firing squad, 21 to 30 is gasing, 31-40 is injection, 41 to 49 is death by kidney punches.
Pressing them under large granite stones works as well..........or.....get HM Tower of London to re-open Little Ease. A cell so small you can neither sit or stand in. Below the tide line of the Thames. Or put thier heads in a glass bowl full of hungry rats. Or send them to a Sunderland game........
How about we use the lions from the Zoos around the country.
Imagine it, two chavs that have done your car over and had the stereo out of it for the 3rd time in 12 months.
The judge gives them the option of swinging by their Burberry scarved necks or spend 20 minutes with 'kitty' unarmed in exchange for a second chance at following the straight and narrow path that most of us tread.
Top quality entertainment, reduced meat bill for the zoos, reduced prison population. Law abiding people win all round.
