Firing Squad set to go in Utah

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

In Utah, things are done the old-fashioned way. Mr. Ronnie Lee Gardner is set to be executed by the State for a pair of murders in the 1980’s. Sentenced before 2004, when the law changed, Mr. Gardner is allowed to choose his manner of execution, between lethal injection or firing squad. His choice? “I would like the firing squad, please,” Gardner said. Naturally, not everyone is happy with the decision. Including the victim’s friends and family.
