Not quite the same...but I could never imagine BEING on death row, let alone requesting the manner in which I will die.
Last I heard it was a legit firing squad.

Nope...as I read...although I cant find the linkey-doo now...it was going to be a line of law enforcement officers.

but I do know that in some places not all the guns are loaded...or some are loaded with blanks or something...so as none of the officers know who will kill, and no single person can be blamed.

If I remember correctly growing up in the area, they use the old 30-30 lever rifle with a 170 grain bullet, five officers with one blank round.
