LETTER: Horror story

The Independent Online
I WAS shocked to have all the evidence regarding various methods of execution laid out across the majority of the third page in the newspaper ("The cruel myth of `humane' execution", 9 April). I understand that these matters need to be researched and the evidence published but I don't think the gruesome details should be written up in full in a quality Sunday newspaper. I equate the contents of the article with that of a horror film and not suitable for family reading.

To write this I read the whole article. It left me feeling sick. Who would want to read this as casual Sunday reading? Finally, I express my support for Amnesty International and others who work in support of human rights.
