Why would you aim for the heart as opposed to the head?You’d think with current technology they could set up a row of unmanned weapon stations with a preset aim to the middle of a chair in the region the heart would be and at the press of a button (with a number of dummy buttons so no one knows who actually initiated the shooting) the weapons each fire a 3 round burst.
Surely better than a human firing squad.
If they actually wanted the best way to do it, it would be to tie tbem down and put a bullet to the head from a pistol to the skull.
Just as a general point, killing somone in cold blood should be brutal and terrible, especially for the people who do it. Making it like euthanizing an old cat robs the act of its inherent wrongness.
And if you had to set the rules for this type of thing, the person making the decision to kill someone should be responsible for pulling the trigger.
