Condemned Utah killer will face firing squad


"Ronnie Lee Gardner, 49, was given the choice of being killed by lethal injection or shot by a five-man team of executioners firing from a set of matched rifles — a rarely used method of execution that harkens back to Utah's territorial history." - AP article, via Yahoo!

When reached for comment, Scottish national hero William Wallace was unimpressed. "Pfft. Kids these days have it too easy. Back in my day, we had to be executed by getting pulled on by horses...both ways! I'd have jumped at the chance for a firing squad! It was bad enough when these whippersnappers started getting all worked up about electricity...and pants. Now all these punk kids can do is complain about their evaporating home equity, global warming, and being shot to death."
