    But you made the other line in your post, so it's reasonable to comment on it. Yes, worrying about the safety of a killing drug sounds amusing, but their is an underlying point to it. Not sure I agree with that point, but I do not know the details of the case in question either.

    I find lethal injection lacking as an execution method. Drugs are inherently unpredictable in addition to being expensive and complicated to administer. A mechanical machine that delivers massive and precise trauma to the brain would likely be more reliable, painless and cheaper.

    Then I guess we should just use a crossbow instead. After all, it's the most fiscally responsible desion to begin with considering one arrow can be used multiple times.

    That last line is golden. How moronic. If it's goal is to kill the person, the only way it's not "safe for intended use" would be if it was ineffective right?

    Nice! Glad to see another Venture Bros. fan here Actually I think it is from the first season episode where Brock, was trapped in the virtual reality machine and Dr. Orpheus had to rescue them.

    But I could be wrong about that, I found it on a google image search.

    As previously mentioned, there's the possibility that it doesn't kill them, and instead leaves them in horrendous pain and severe brain damage. I guess you'd have to read the actual trial documents to know for sure, but to assume someone's reasoning is moronic before knowing their reasoning at all is a bit silly in a court-of-law context. I can't tell you how many times I've heard a decision and thought "Wait, what the hell?" only then to read the supporting argument and go "Ooohhh... hadn't thought of that."
