  • *facepalm* Really?




    Instead, the state will use an intravenous combination of midazolam, a sedative, and hydromorphone, a painkiller, in the Nov. 14 execution of Ronald Phillips of Akron.

    [....]

    Ohio's revamped execution policy calls for it to try to buy specialty batches of pentobarbital from compounding pharmacies, which mix individual doses of drugs for specific patients. If that fails, the policy calls for the use of the two-drug approach.

    A plan by Georgia to use a similar specialty batch of pentobarbital has been put on hold by a federal lawsuit challenging the state prison agency's refusal to identify the compounding pharmacy that provided the drug.

    The lawsuit also questions the drug's safety and effectiveness.
    Really? Seriously?




    You're worried about whether or not a drug specifically intended to kill someone is safe?

    What's it going to do? Kill somebody?




    Good grief.
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

    Actually they are concerned about not killing him well enough. There was a case where an IV access infiltrated during an execution and it didn't go "humanely". That's the concern.

    They ought to just put Veternarians in charge of this. Get someone with experience.
    If it pays, it stays

        I think common household bleach at 2 bucks a gallon would work.
