Bombers’ lawyer: “We seek a painless execution.”

July 29, 2008

CNN is reporting that three confessed criminals who helped plan a 2002 suicide bombing that killed 202 people in Bali don’t want a firing squad… because it will hurt.

The lawyer for convicted killers Ali Ghufron, Imam Samudra and Amrozi Nurhasyim maintains that his clients will suffer needlessly if their deaths are not immediate.

It seems to me there is a simple and just solution: Grant these three the same consideration they afforded their innocent victims.
