State finally gives in to opponents of death penalty

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:02 pm by rkuhn

Since the advent of lethal injection as a method of administering the death penalty, sceptics have labelled it as "cruel and unusual."  Advocates of the method have long insisted that the method is the most humane method available and dismissed complaints by sceptics as those by death penalty opponents guised as lethal injection opponents

Tally one for the oppositionalists.  To quote the Dispatch:

"It don’t work. It don’t work," he said five times, according to media witnesses.

Medical technicians returned and the curtain was closed at 10:37 a.m., blocking the view of authorized witnesses, who later heard what they described as "moaning, crying out and guttural noises."

It took almost an hour and a half, but by 11:26 a.m., the 57-year-old killer from Toledo was dead as planned. It took two tries, and much of the work was conducted behind the curtain, preventing the official witnesses from viewing the process of inserting needles into Clark’s veins after one vein collapsed, or "blew out."
