Judge Orders Convicted Sniper Forcibly Fed

I saw this headline and was kind of amused. It kind of evokes all kinds of pictures.

I immediately thought of ten guards holding this guy down and then forcing porridge into him by the spoonful. My nursing experience, has given me these sort of images as well. When I first started, I spent a great deal of time feeding mentally disabled. They were not always compliant.

I am sure there are other ways they can feed this guy, but he will probably be restrained either by chemical or physical means. Maybe both.

As I thought about this situation the easiest way is just to put a tube down his nose and directly feed him that way. It would be relatively painless, it would be hard for him to remove if both hands and head are restrained.

It may all be a moot point if he gets executed anyway. Gotta die the legal way.
