America gets this wrong how? I mean I had always thought that the objections against compounding pharmacies were spurious - yet apparently this guy was “executed” and “declared unconcious” and then started calling out on the gurney, and then died of a heart attack?
If the chemicals they used are secret then how can anyone learn how to avoid this kind of farce?
From the petty cruelty of denying a condemned man his last meal because it cost more than $15, to a botched execution which obviously caused him suffering. Come on, America. You’re supposed to be a civilised nation.
Did they use the “three drug” protocol and fail to set the IV correctly? Did they mix the drugs incorrectly and cause the drugs to precipitate out of solution prior to the execution? Did they pick some novel drug at random and experiment on the man to see what would happen?
What a PR disaster for the pro-death camp. I mean whoever decided this was a good idea to execute someone in this manner should be put before a court themselves. Fired, removed from their duties, made to pay civil damages.
