Is being struck with enough electricity to cause the eyeballs pop out of their sockets any better than being beheaded? (Guernsey, 59) Is the death penalty 'cruel and unusual punishment'?

Most importantly we must make the appeals process more orderly to cut down on the glut of inmates on death row, and therefore cut down on the money wasted housing prisoners during the appeals process.
