A painstaking reconstruction of a real-time execution by lethal injection that highlights some of the very specific issues relating to the USA’s preferred execution method.

Between 1976 and 2016 the US has executed 1442 people by lethal injection.These executions are carried out using medicines originally designed to save and improve the lives of patients. Because these drugs were not designed to kill, and are administered in experimental dosages by wardens who are not medically trained, these executions are frequently botched.

    I love how so many people are ready and willing to protest the “inhumane” treatment of criminals who are certainly not known for THEIR humane treatment of their victims. Far as I’m concerned, the death penalty should be designed to cause as MUCH suffering before death as possible.
