I believe not. In Texas, years ago, our execution method was changed from the electric chair to lethal injection on the grounds that electrocution was cruel and unusual.

No. People have been executed through the ages and will be executed for all time to come. Is it cruel? I say no. There is no pain inolved.

Why was this execution particularly cruel?

It is difficult to determine the specific context of the execution you are referring to as there have been numerous instances of cruel executions throughout history.

The cruelty may be subjective in nature as it depends on cultural norms and perceptions of what is considered humane.

Why is death by firing squad not cruel and unusual?

No. Though it has rarely been used outside of wartime, no case has ever been successfully brought against the practice in the United States. It has only ever been used as a method of execution in 4 states, is no longer used in 2 of those, and is only currently a backup option to lethal injection in 2. The U.S. Supreme Court has only once heard the case that the firing squad is cruel and unusual, and in that case, Wilkerson v. Utah (1878), the Court found that the firing squad did not constitute cruel and unusual punishment. The last case of firing squad execution in the United States was in Utah in 1996 and was elected by the condemned. Utah removed the option for firing squad execution in 2004. A 1993 survey suggested that Firing Squad was more painful to the condemned only than execution by lethal injection, below electrocution, the second most common method of execution in the United States.
