If a prisoner gets the death penalty, how are they executed?

In America.

Most by boredom from sitting around exhausting endless appeals, unless they're from Texas. Then it's a peaceful slumber into hell, no matter how despicable the act they committed

Just my opinion, they should void their life the same way they did to the victim. If they beat the victim to death they should go out the same way! $exual assault, Viagra up the biggest inmate possible, and until death do they part!

I believe the chair is still around, but not sure. Lethal injection is probably the most likely.

Depends on the state. I think firing squad and hanging are still active. Mostly lethal injection the chair and the gas chamber

by lethal injection, the prisoner is strapped to a gurny and 3 diffrent medications are injected into the prisoner. The first one is an anesthetic which relaxes the prisoner, the second is pancuronium bromide which is a paralytic agent , and the third is potassium chloride which causes the heart to stop beating.

Two injections. One is inserted into the body but does not effect the human and the second combines with the other one and becomes lethal.

Some die from old age by the time they exhaust their final appeals! Most states with the death penalty use lethal injection. It is supposed to be the least painful way of execution. Too bad the victims didn't go that way!
