Execution Methods
FILE - In this June 18, 2010, file photo, the firing squad execution chamber at the Utah State Prison in Draper, Utah, is shown. Used mostly in the 19th and 20th centuries, it was also used in 1977 in Utah to execute Gary Gilmore, the first inmate put to death after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed capital punishment to resume, and two other Utah inmates. Some experts consider it the quickest and least painful method. (AP Photo/Trent Nelson, Pool, File)
