Only one bullet needed to end a murderer’s life

After all the discussions and news articles about the botched execution in Oklahoma, and the outrage for the treatment of the self-admitted murderer, I have to agree it is terribly inhumane. We, as a compassionate society, believe in showing deranged killers the mercy that they so happily denied their victims. We, as taxpayers, believe in shouldering the enormous expense to maintain prisons to lock them up when they are caught and also to pay for a very expensive and cruel method of execution when the law allows.

I can offer up only one solution to this much-debated method. It requires one minute, one gun, one bullet and one mother of a slain child with the convicted killer. Problem solved.
