Oh well, it was a nice thought

With only hours to go before the first of seven death row inmates were scheduled to be executed, the Arkansas Supreme Court halted the procedures, putting yet another legal roadblock in the state’s plan to conduct an unprecedented number of executions before the end of the month.

    Bullets and rope are cheap. Stones are free. Take your pick.

      Yup give the “Garry Gilmore” treatment. Back in 1977 the State of Utah gave the murderers two options: Hang or be shot. Garry opted to catch some .30 cal. rounds in the chest.

      His last words are one of my favorite credos: “Let’s do it”!

    just wondering—why do they broadcast their intentions to execute? Why not just do it ? Seems like the whole thing was a set up to be stopped by a so called judge that wants 5 minutes of press.

      They have to announce the executions a certain # of days in advance so the govenor has time to decide if a repreave will be given.

    Why the three drug cocktail crap??? All you need is a plastic bag, a hose, and a cylinder of pure nitrogen with a regulator. Bag the dirtbag’s head, run the hose in and let the N2 flow at 20 l/min or so so the bag stays inflated. As soon as the O2 level drops the dirtbag falls asleep, and a few minutes later his heart will stop from hypoxia. No muss. no fuss, and nothing a bleeding heart can ban. He doesn’t even struggle because the CO2 level never gets high enough to trigger anything.

    Same thing happens when you enter a enclosed space or a deep pocket in an industrial facility..

      Yup. And nobody is going to retrieve your dead ass until they have suited.

      I’d use H2S. It works faster and just shuts off neural functions before killing you.

      This method is under review in Oklahoma due to the fuss created when one of our shitsbags took too long to die, note: I say “too long is subjective, since the desired outcome was realized.” All you really need is a pair of handcuffs, a garbage bag, zip tie, and a little patience; expiration dates do not apply.

    Shucks, bus accidents happen all the time. Just load the inmates, some cigarette cartons with matches and a couple of barrels of open gasoline barrels and let nature takes its course.

    Only government can fuck up killing people.

    My cost to reload a .45ACP was like 12¢. What’s the cost of the chemicals? The administering equipment room?

    These guys need to take a hint from No Country For Old Men.
