HOUSTON (AP) Texas has obtained a new batch of the drugs it uses to execute death row inmates, allowing the state to continue carrying out death sentences once its existing supply expires at the end of the month.

TX going to use some of that drug in 30 minutes.
“Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty... mine’s putting in an express lane.”
Let the good times roll!
Hooray! Now let’s git r movin’.
I think the idea of executing someone who is undeniably guilty is a great idea. If someone is so obviously guilty like Ted Bundy, they should be executed within a year and a day of conviction/sentencing.
Hope they share their supplier with Oklahoma.
Remington makes Drugs?
I really admire Texans for their self sufficiency.
Likely; a new growth industry in the Southern States, manufacturing drugs used in lethal injection executions.
Well, I hope the stuff isn’t veterinarian quality. Someone could get killed.
Just had the thought that maybe they’re using high school or university students in need of some extra credit and tuition assistance.
Hehe, everyone here is on a roll today.
Let the killin’ begin.
I think it would be educational for juvenile delinquents to be forced to watch executions to show them what will surely happen if they don’t straighten themselves out.

The smell of gunpowder makes good aroma therapy.
I stand by my position that anti-death penalty is a conservative principle. The State should never have this much power and the fact that innocents have been executed should be enough to stop this practice.
And yes. I prosecuted my fair share of death penalty cases. But the power to the State AND killing the innocent is not overcome by the horror perpetrated by some of these Defendants.
It is important to note that capital punishment is the flip side of gun liberty, because if the state refuses to execute savage murderers, the citizenry must be equipped to do so, and without the legal folderal.
For this reason, states should cut through the mustard and use means of execution that are unquestionable in their effectiveness, and so ubiquitous that they may be obtained throughout the state. Namely, bullets.
Federal judges have taken it upon themselves to try to end capital punishment by a “death of a thousand cuts”, using minutiae arguments to delay it for decades. Currently, they argue about drug manufacturers, what type drugs, how quickly they are past their ‘freshness date’, etc., etc.
But bullets go beyond that. By using a firing squad, Texas could expedite the journey to Hades for a whole bunch of these fiends. I mean the prisoners, not the federal judges.
where there’s a will, there’s a way.
