Make-believe that executions are taking place, where as they are not.
With the shortage of execution cocktails in the US,
proceeding with capital punishments is becoming more
more difficult. To solve this supply problem,
government can "fake" the
executions. No one will ever know the executions did
take place, except classified officials. Also,
show, the convicts will be disfigured by any creative
you can think of (e.g. listening Bieber 24/7).
This will allow more executions to be conducted, less
guily, and the
convicted murderers to believe they are going to be
executed in few months, not decades, like the placebo
effect. To make it believable the government will still
have to conduct executions, but at a lesser rate.
give the convicts anesthesia and make them wake up on
"judgement day" in front of "God". Maybe they will
confess to their crime
give other information in order to go through the
"heaven" gate. After they are done, they are locked in
solitary confinement for life. Economical? No.
To extract funds and rip off people interesting in subsidizing evil. [bungston, Jun 17 2014]
||You got this whole 'fake' thingy going lately. I dig it.
||Well, there's that whole thing about mock executions being
considered a form of torture and thus banned by
international convention that might represent a minor
impediment to the widespread adoption of this idea.
||I'm waiting to see how [xenzag] will weigh in on this idea:
for (unlikely), against (even more unlikely), or execution is
just a state-sponsored form of barbaric retribution that has
no place in a civilized society and we're worse than the
love child of North Korea and Iran (almost certainly).
||I don't understand why we picked such a roundabout
way of killing people. Out of all the different
methods, why an obscure drug cocktail that only
works most of the time?
||//why an obscure drug cocktail that only works most

||Because supporters of execution are morally
degenerate bloodthirsty assholes who want revenge
but can't come out and say it.
||[Voice], don't hold back, tell us how you REALLY feel...
||Interesting? No. Economical? No.
||//To make it believable the government will still have to conduct executions, but at a lesser rate.// Maybe they'll stop executing the mentally disabled; the under-aged, and those unable to afford expensive lawyers. Any idea that makes or tries to make executions more acceptable in any form receives a bone from me. Executing people is the work of psychos and diseased societies.
||No shortage of executioners, then.
||Executions should be made illegal, but could still
take place, but the executioner would be
executed, setting off a chain of executions until
the final executioner is executed by his own hand,
finally achieving the goal set out in law.
||Alternatively, the whole legal system could be
overhauled, and instead of being found guilty or
not, a person is deemed a good person or a bad
person. If found good they are encouraged to
continue living their good lives, if found bad they
are encouraged through immense social pressure
to take their own lives, or for lesser badness to
||i gave you a bun because i think this would go down
really well if broadcast over facebook.
||call them fakesecutions by facebook.
||Oh gee. Yes I am barbaric. It seems like same enlightened
flock that supports euthanasia is supporting the removal of
d-penalty. So, have the good people commit suicide and
bad people like Breivik enjoy their accomplishments in 5-
star prisons? I get it. Listen, son. Civilization is psychotic,
always been. I am sure you have not eaten any meat in the
last, err, five days. You know, those red things they put in
food that used to make up an animal that used to see, hear,
feel, and breathe. Yeah, love bird you are. Not even going
into the murder of babies. Don't make me bring my tea
bagger buddies. Touche, libbie.
||What about the fake fake executions? Bound to happen.
