    And why did they need the new drugs? Why did we need new methods in the first place? The old methods were tried and true and cheaper. But somehow the weak in the knees thought a few seconds of possible suffering was just too much for condemned murderers.

    Were those drugs tested before they were used?

    How about we get rid of the penalty all together for several reasons
    1.)Possibility of innocence
    2.)It causes pain, and suffering which is cruel and unusual.

    Well, it isn't an unusual form of punishment so that really only leaves the question of whether it was cruel or not. The way I see it they knocked the sucker out and juiced him. If he was unconscious the whole time I really don't figure it was cruel either so there you have it!

    Hmmmm, wonder how much he cared about what his victims went through. At worse, this calls for a much more efficient method. Somehow, we got into the idea that it's more humane if we leave a prettier corpse. The guillotine would be much, much quicker.

    Re: Inmate Dies 2 Hours After Execution in Arizona

    From the article…

    Gov. Jan Brewer issued this statement: “I am concerned by the length of time it took for the administered drug protocol to complete the lawful execution of the convicted double murderer, Joseph Wood. While justice was carried out today, I directed the Department of Corrections to conduct a full review of the process.

    “One thing is certain, however, inmate Wood died in a lawful manner and by eyewitness and medical accounts he did not suffer.
    This is in stark comparison to the gruesome, vicious suffering that he inflicted on his two victims – and the lifetime of suffering he has caused their family.”

    Wood, 55, was convicted of first-degree murder February 25, 1991, and sentenced to death July 2, 1991.

    Wood was involved in an unstable five-year relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Debbie Dietz, during the time of the crime. On August 7, 1989, Wood walked into the local body shop owned by her family and shot Debbie’s 55-year-old father, Gene Dietz, in the chest with a .38 caliber revolver, according to a statement from the AG.

    Wood later located Debbie, and shot her once in the abdomen and once in the chest, killing her as well, the document stated.

    So all suffering is cruel? I guess you want to ban prisons too? Do let me know when the victim garners the same sympathy from you (I won't hold my breath).

    When it slowly kills someone for 2 hours and leaves them conscious gasping for air and snorting.

    If he was unconscious the whole time I really don't figure it was cruel either so there you have it!
    He was apparently conscious. From the first link: ""he was apparently left conscious long after the drugs were administered."
