South Carolina Execution

Pick Your Poison: South Carolina Death Row Inmate Chooses Method For His Execution

Richard Bernard Moore is set to be executed on April 29th, and per South Carolina law he has been given the option to choose between the electric chair and firing squad for his mode of death. Moore has opted to die by firing squad, which means he’ll face a team of three prison guards armed with rifles pointed at his heart. Moore would be only the fourth American to die by firing squad since 1976.
