    Re: Arkansas Executes its First Inmate Since 2005

    I have registered with this forum, because I feel the urge to speak to some American about the news of frequent executions in the US and the reported lack of useful medication for it.

    I don't bother too much about the death penalti that has it pros and cons.

    But how in the world could a decent and serious country be unable to execute a person properly without cramps, and gasping?

    Your own laws forbid cruel and unusual penalties. Please get honorable, decent and true, and change the laws, if you want to give evil felons a hard time dying for 40 Minutes. Anything else is bigotry und is a public disgrace for the U.S. that I have to read in the media all the time. And it upsets me.

    Midazolam is a benzodiazepine. These replaced the much more toxic barbiturates, just because it is very hard to kill a human with that. Hydromorphone, well, is clumsy at best in my view.

    Why don't you just gas people to death decently, effectively and cheaply with inert gas (Argon, Nitrogen)?

    But a country that sent a rocket to the moon with astronauts and isn't able to kill a human being? That is so far beyond ridiculousness, it sheds a very, very bad light on your nation.

    Odd, isn't it? You'll find just as much crazy stuff in the Torah as in the Quran. And yet, no Jewish suicide bombers that I'm aware of. Or beheading and whatnot.

    It's almost like the words in the book aren't actually the key factor.

    It ensures they will never, ever kill again.

    I have zero sympathy for him. He got what he deserved.

    It has nothing to do with sympathy. It has to do with being a civilized society.

    Considering its source, I will take that as a compliment. And I am not about to go anywhere.

    Murdering people is not civilized. These assholes deserve it.

    I agree with you 100%. This is why I'm opposed to murder...be it the cold-blooded killer or the government executioner. Yes....those men were assholes. They deserved to be punished severely. But state-sanctioned killing is just as wrong as the act that the murderers committed.
