    Ohio killer to get 2-drug injection untried in US

    Ohio killer to get 2-drug injection untried in US | Fox News

    COLUMBUS, OHIO – Ohio will use a two-drug combination untried as an execution method in the U.S. to put to death a condemned inmate who raped and killed a pregnant woman, the state prisons agency confirmed Tuesday.
    The determination means the state was unable to obtain an unregulated batch of pentobarbital, the drug Ohio used until its manufacturer put it off limits for executions.
    Instead, the state will use drugs from its untested backup execution method in the Jan. 16 execution of Dennis McGuire, according to the decision contained in a memo by Southern Ohio Correctional Facility warden Donald Morgan and released to The Associated Press after a public records request.
    The untested method: an intravenous combination of midazolam, a sedative, and hydromorphone, a painkiller. No state has put a prisoner to death with those drugs in any fashion.

    I dont oppose the death penalty but a lethal injection of drugs that has never been tested seems wrong.

    I prefer the guillotine. Swift and sure.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It hasn't been tested? Did they just randomly come up with it?

    I am guessing here, but I assume that theorhetically it will work and be humane.

    It kind of sounds like the state will be testing the effectiveness of those drugs on Mr McGuire.

    I wonder what they will do if the drugs don't kill this guy?

    IOW: what's their back-up plan?

    If there is any information on it possibly being "cruel and unusual" his lawyer should challenge it.

    If you believe in the death penalty, you should have no problem with this. Testing? Why should untold rats, guinea pigs, and monkeys have to die in order to "test" the lethal dose of a chemical? With thousands of prisoners on death rows in dozens of US states, I see nothing wrong with doing the "testing" on them, provided there is no possibility they were convicted wrongly. Better a deserving sub-human should suffer and die than an undeserving innocent animal.

    I have never understood the complication of finding the right drug cocktail.
    Morphine and Exsanguination, should do the job nicely, and cheap.
