"Lawyers for two men on death row in Oklahoma say the state has informed them it has a new execution protocol that would allow it to choose from any of five lethal injections.

I think they should go green with solar powered electric chairs.
That would please the Greenies and likely end up lowering the bills. If they solar powered the death house it would likely end up saving a lot of cash in the long run.
I like the way you think.
May the other states who still execute follow suit to avoid any delays therein!!
How about 100cc of Morphine? They can’t very well claim opiates are cruel and unusual when half the guys in the big house are there because they were so desperate to get them they were willing to commit crimes to do so. And it’s cheap and available from a million places.
Why the superfluous energy conversion?
Have you ever seen (and smelt) what solar power can do to an ant, no photovoltaics needed?
Or the same “uncut heroin” that dead junkies are always ODing on in every cop show. Why is this hard?
So these 2 douchebags get to choose which combo, just like going to McD’s? Sweet!
I really get a snarky kick out of how wickedly creative people are on here.
I like it.
Chinese menu execution.
“ please pick one from column A and one from column B”...
More like Burger King.
“Have it your way”...
Or beheading from a windmill.
lol on that
I find it so stupid that we put millions of people a year under anesthesia for surgery and we cannot do it here and then administer a narcotic hotshot or simply an air bubble.
