Death by Starvation and Dehydration sign now

Whereas thirty-nine states and the federal government allow for the death
penalty to be imposed:

The undersigned are petitioning the residents of said states to be allowed to change the manner of death from injection, electrocution, hanging and shooting to death by Starvation and Dehydration.

Death by Starvation and Dehydration has been ruled by state and federal appeals courts, specifically the Florida 2nd District Court of Appeals, Florida Supreme Court, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Atlanta, Georgia re: Terri Schiavo, to be a totally humane, peaceful, painless and even euphoric form of death. The sentence has been upheld, without comment, by the Florida Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court.

Said manner of death could possibly save taxpayers approximately 22\% of current costs on average per prisoner, depending on the number of inmates actually executed. Those funds could then be used for crime prevention programs, additional law enforcement, drug rehabilitation programs and other education and social programs as determined by the legislatures of each state.

After appeals have been exhausted: The day the execution is to begin, the condemned inmate would be transferred to a designated hospice, hospital or state owned and maintained execution facility. The condemned prisoner would be restrained in a comfortable, hospital-like setting in a darkened room and starvation and dehydration will commence. The darkened room will hasten the condemneds' sense of tranquility.

The Starvation and Dehydration process would last approximately two weeks, more or less.

As previously stated, a major benefit of this form of execution is the financial savings to states with the death penalty. Also, Starvation and Dehydration would effectively do away with the main argument of death penalty opponents, i.e.; that death by injection, electrocution, hanging and shooting are 'cruel and unusual' punishment. As stated above, death by Starvation and Dehydration has been deemed by numerous courts to be painless, blissful lapses into a coma-like sleep, then death. An additional benefit: Activist judges would be more likely to uphold a lower court death sentence.

Our condemned brutal murderers deserve no less than our condemned disabled and mentally impaired.
