The most recent actions of the South Carolina Senate have resurrected the antiquated methods of capital punishment by way of electric chair or firing squad. South Carolina is one of twenty-eight states who remain pro-capital punishment.

This past Tuesday the states Senate voted in favor to restart state executions after a decade-long moratorium. The bill will implement older practices such as the electric chair, the new default for capital punishment, with death by firing squad as an “alternative”.
