    In other words, on 17 January the drugs will be a tested execution method? I do not understand, why they use drugs in the first place.

    I am not opposed to the death penalty at all but I do believe it should be done in a fairly painless and in a humane manner when it is used. I would strongly prefer a physical execution to a drugged one.

    Just another problem with the death penalty.

    It is inhumane, period.

    States deciding if someone lives or dies is a problem indeed.

    The biggest problem being that there is always a chance of killing an innocent person. That is just unacceptable.

    But yeah, to not derail the thread further, Ohio shouldn't use this untested method to kill someone. It just screams of being wrong.

    No idea why his lawyer is not challenging it as we speak.

    I'm not sure why they don't just give a big dose of a sedative with a direct injection of potassium chloride.

    That is where the problem comes in. Some people have been wrongly convicted
