Who deserves justice?

Those who object to the Florida death penalty method of lethal Injection which is now the state law in Florida as well as other states, I ask, "Where are the priorities?"
While cruelty to another human being is not the intention of lethal injection, I find it difficult to understand the whys of the objectors.
After countless appeals on the behalf of those criminals who are sentenced to death, by the court, the possibility of five minutes of pain by a condemned murderer seems unimportant in comparison to the pain and suffering of an innocent victim or victims. Who deserves justice, the victim or his killer?
I ask again, "Where are our priorities?"
