A death row inmate in South Carolina set to be executed later this month has chosen to die by firing squad rather than the electric chair, according to court documents filed Friday.⁠

Richard Bernard Moore, 57, has spent more than two decades on the state’s death row after he was convicted of killing a convenience store employee in 1999. A circuit judge had set his execution date for 2002, but prosecutors said at the time they expected years of appeals.⁠

Now, two decades later, Moore is set to be executed on April 29; he’ll be the first person put to death in South Carolina since 2011. He’s chosen death by firing squad — what led to this?⁠

  1. Capital punishment, a bias judicial system used against non-whites …not judge by they’re peers. °👁️

  2. The fact that it takes this long to kill people like this is upsetting. How much money went into keeping this vermin alive for 23 years? Why does it need to be such a complicated process to rid the world of him?

  3. I dont beleive in firing squad much less the electric chair that hasnt been right off and on. Alone in a cell. Colorado. .When we do these things we become worst then the guy.
