I don’t want to be indelicate, but a bullet is cheaper and works better

Rope is even better; a good sturdy length of sisal or hemp rope can be used multiple times.

Arizona has run out of execution drugs, including a sedative implicated in botched lethal injections, according to a filing in a court case challenging the US state’s execution methods.

The Arizona Department of Corrections’ supply of midazolam, a sedative, expired on May 31 and it has not been able to replace it, state lawyers said in the filing in Phoenix’s US District Court.

“What is more, the department’s source of midazolam has vanished under pressure from death-penalty opponents,” the court document said.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of seven death-row inmates who allege that Arizona’s use of midazolam and two other drugs violate the US Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.  

Since midazolam was at the heart of the lawsuit, the filing asked the judge hearing the case, Neil Wake, to decide whether the suit was moot.

The document said the Department of Corrections also lacked the execution drugs pentobarbital and sodium thiopental.

Just shoot them, or hang them. They claim that being put to death with drugs is inhumane…be careful what you wish for.

Arizona has not carried out an execution since the July 2014 execution of Joseph Wood. He was administered 14 times the allowed doses of midazolam and a narcotic, hydromorphone, and took almost two hours to die.

I hope it hurt on the way to hell.

One other way could be to outsource the job to China. They are pretty good at the process.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
