The closest I'm seeing to enjoyment is an expression of not caring about the condemned man's suffering or wanting to focus on the suffering of the victim. I write in the comments to stress that executions must reflect our values — due process and refraining from cruel and unusual punishment — and the hateful values of the condemned person cannot change that. Personally, I oppose the death penalty, so I am not in the category of persons that Attaturk believes enjoy torture-executions, but I assume many of my commenters support the death penalty, and I don't see anyone disagreeing with the point I made, that if there are to be executions, they must be done humanely.
Incidents like yesterday's erode support for the death penalty, so I don't think death penalty proponents are happy to see anything that can be used to promote the theory that executions can go wrong and inflict unnecessary pain anymore than they want to hear that an executed person may have been innocent. If a botched execution is erotica for anybody, it should be the opponents of the death penalty.
From the comments at Firedoglake:
One of the many key distinctions between those of us on the left VS the teabag extreme right is that we don’t support torturing people. Killing human beings is very terrible but I guess in this country as long as it isn’t an infant anything goes huh?
thanks, attaturk, what the hey? If we really wanted to save money we could just let ‘em starve. Give the right a thrill down their collective leg.
As long as it isn’t a fetus-American anything goes.
