Protocol for Virginia’s lethal injection

Unlike some other states, Virginia holds its death chamber protocols very close to the vest, refusing to release them except under the most limited circumstances, and then only when compelled by a federal judge.

But some of the contents of the state’s executioner’s manual have been allowed to leak into the daylight via court proceedings, interviews and firsthand observations.
The following is a limited reconstruction of how executions are to proceed in Virginia, based on those sources that have become public:

• Up to two weeks before the execution
Prisoners are removed from death row at Sussex I and driven the 30 or so miles to the death house at Jarratt.

• About 8:30 p.m., execution day
The condemned is led from his cell to a shower, where he cleans up and
re-dresses.

• About 8:50 p.m.
The condemned inmate is led in restraints to the execution chamber, where he is seated on the execution gurney, then placed on his back. Guards then strap the inmate down
at various points.

• Immediately thereafter
A curtain dividing the witnesses from the prisoner is drawn, and the execution team starts two IVs, ideally one in each arm, for the purposes of administering the lethal chemicals.

Once the IVs are started and executioners have made certain that the restraints do not interfere with the flow of fluid from the IVs into the body, the team retreats behind a second blue curtain.

It is from behind this second curtain that the execution team administers the lethal chemicals into the IV and watches a heart monitor previously attached.

The first curtain is re-opened.

• About 8:59 p.m.
The warden asks if the inmate has any final words.

• 9:01 p.m.
Following a final signal from a second prison official — on the phone with the governor’s office for the duration of the execution — that no reprieve is forthcoming, the execution team behind the curtain begins to administer the lethal does of chemicals.

First, a dose of 2 grams of sodium thiopental anesthetic is pushed through the lines, quickly inducing unconsciousness, with most inmates “snoring” after about a minute.

The lines are then flushed with saline solution, and a dose of 50 milligrams of pancuronium bromide is injected into the lines, paralyzing the inmate and hastening suffocation.

Executioners then flush the lines again, and inject the fatal dose of potassium chloride, which stops the heart in most cases within a minute or so.

• About 9:11 p.m.
If a heart monitor does not indicate a “flatline,” a second dose of the two lethal chemicals are then injected via the second IV.

Once the heart monitor does show a flat line, the curtain is closed again and a physician examines the body and pronounces death.

The black Muslim and Black Panther stuff is thoroughly intertwined; Essex met with BP members before his bloody rampage (though of course the Black Panthers claim he was never part of their organization).

Let's not forget the 1973-74 Zebra Murders in California by Nation of Islam members. While the official count is 16 dead, "some members of the Zebra task force suspected that at least 71 murders throughout California might have been the work of various other Death Angels squads. Since many victims were drawn from the ranks of the homeless or hitchhikers, there is no certainty about the actual numbers".

"Later today he meets Allah ?"

Yup, and then he'll learn "Allah's" real name. Starts with S, ends with N, and has ATA in the middle.

This form of execution is too easy for this heartless bastard. I hope they swab his injection site with pork fat.

Used to joke with friends about how they swab injection sites with disinfectant alcohol prior to sticking the needle in. I mean, afterall, why are they trying to prevent infection in someone who is going to be dead within a 1/2 hour anyways?

Then a friend who's dad was a doc pointed out that the alcohol actually makes the needle sting more when it gets stuck in. A little somethings better than nothing, right?

I also have to wonder if, since ingestion of alcohol is prohibited to Muslims just like pork, they use alcohol-based disinfectant (is there any other kind?), he' gets sent off to Allah in an "unclean" state.

Oh, and I have a personal interest in seeing this guy get the needle. If I hadn't been delayed with another errand and decided to go home instead, I would have been pulling into the parking lot at the Falls Church Home Depot center right about the time the guy pulled the trigger.

Same here. If I hadn't gone back to the vase aisle to check one more thing, I'd have been two people in front of the woman at the Fredericksburg Michael's instead of two people behind.

If there were any justice, it would be a large wood chipper.

Did Political Correctness make excuses for this creep like it’s now making for Hasan?
