Don't fry; season instead.
Execution is wrong. It's way, way too lenient. I mean, think about it: thousands of people voluntarily commit suicide every year.
That's why it's time to bring back HARD LABOR. No one voluntarily does HARD LABOR (at least not without compensation). That's real punishment.
So let's end the death penalty and stop letting people off lightly. Instead, let's put them to work in the salt mines. If we don't have any salt mines, we'll build some, just for convicts. The point is not to get more salt. The point is to make criminals shudder every time they see a salt shaker.
