Florida Execution by Firing Squads or Electric Chair - Legislation Seeks to End Lethal Injection Method of Execution

Right now, the Florida House of Representatives has before it a bill that would end lethal injections as a method of execution.  This bill doesn't end the death penalty, though (that's a different bill): this proposed legislation, if it becomes law, will return Florida to its prior methods of carrying out capital punishment.

That's right.  Old Sparky or the Firing Squad would be back as the two ways that executions would be carried out here in the State of Florida.

Who's responsible for this?  Florida State Rep. Brad Drake -- and he's getting lots of news coverage from this, too.  Coast to coast. 

We've already written on the method of killing people in electric chairs; go here if you want to know more about it.

We have lost a lot of law enforcement officers in the last few years. Miami, Tampa, St. Petersburg it seems, took the brunt of it. I, being a past law enforcement officer myself, cry over these killings.

Could you please add to this proposal that if found guilty for killing a law enforcement officer with a gun, it should be an automatic firing squard offense.

Thank you for taking the time in reading my input.

Respectfully, Ben Rettka Seminole, Fl.
