On Bringing Back the Firing Squad

• The Agitator
Florida State Rep. Brad Drake is taking heat for suggesting the state bring back the firing squad. He’s actually sort of right. But as is usually the case when a politician says something sort of sensible, he’s right in ways he didn’t really intend. Drake wants to bring back the firing squad because, “I have no desire to humanely respect those that are inhumane.”
