Electrocution via Electric Chair

The electric chair is still used in the United States for the purposes of execution. Ironically, it is the inaction of the very people who oppose capital punishment, the ACLU and similar groups, that cause this practice to continue. These groups feel that taking a stand towards lethal injection would taint their overall opposition to the death penalty.
