  • The death penalty is legal in 30 states with approximately 2000 individuals awaiting their date.

  • With the grim reaper hanging in, firing squad used to be the chief way to implement the death penalty until states switched to the gas chamber in the electric chair for a more humane way to kill, turns out both of those were far from humane, and today, lethal injection remains the primary method for killing.
