That'd work. I'd hate to have to clean the execution chamber, though.

“States around the country have had difficulty obtaining lethal injection drugs, as international pharmaceutical companies refuse to supply them for ethical reasons.”

So let me get this straight, they can refuse to sell drugs for ethical reasons, but a baker can’t refuse to make a gay wedding cake????

Seems like a double standard to me

Critics have pointed to the execution in January of an Oklahoma prisoner who reportedly said he could feel his “whole body burning” as evidence.

I suppose that those little girls that he murdered felt really good while he was murdering them.

He needs to be slowly skinned alive with salt poured into each exposed flesh area as it is stripped and hopeful it takes a very, very, very long time.

Tommy Lynn Sells is suspected of over 22 murders, he claims he committed around 70.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

The manufacturers of lethal injection drugs have been threatened in the past by opponents to the death penalty.

The State of Texas agreed with the new supplier to not disclose their identity.

So.. tough toodles. We juice him anyway and to hell with the whiners.

I’m thinking that if a state were to go back to using the chair, an appeal for stay could be made that the power has to come from “green” sources.

This Tommy Lynn Sells has a history that should take him beyond any delays by the bench.

Why not use illegal drugs seized by the state? I’m sure that a meth or heroin overdose would be effective.

Indeed. Adios, Mofo.

There should be no mercy toward those who wantonly murder and show none to their victims.

If you kill someone in Texas, Texas will kill you back.

Years ago Texas Monthly ran a snippet about lethal injection drugs having to be proven “safe and effective.” The headline was “One out of Two Ain’t Bad”.

Judge are not Judges any more, fifteen minutes of fame superceeds any Voter or jury decision. When the mandate is clear and a Judge intervenes they should be thrown off the bench and disbarred! We have become a Country of a voice of one, unless another Judge steps up to the plate! The Supreme Court can’t even follow the mandate of law without Politics coming in to play! Enough is enough!

I think families of the victim could pedal a bicycle powered generator if they wanted. Sure it won’t be as powerful, and will take longer, probably have to let several family take turns to get it done.

Going to be a while, granny wants her turn to spark the child molester...
