Clayton Lockett, 38, was administered a new drug combination

A bungled execution in Oklahoma in which the condemned prisoner writhed and moaned as he received a lethal injection outraged death-penalty opponents, invited court challenges and attracted worldwide attention.

But the inmate's agony alone is highly unlikely to change minds about capital punishment in the most active U.S. death-penalty states, where lawmakers say there is little political will to move against lethal injections

This belongs in Domestic Politics but here goes,

My heart bleeds....not....we make it too comfortable a death.

And most of those states weren't using their death penalty anyhow, so big woof.

I moved the topic as per request.  It's best to double check where you're posting something before you do so.

Bad enough you kill these people, but torturing them to death makes you worse than they are.

While I have nothing against death penalty (keep in mind most of them do deserve it) but this...this was just torture.

I have to agree somewhat, it should a humane death but they are murderers who calculatedly planned the death of someone else, they don't really deserve much mercy.

 

What's wrong with asphyxiation? It's been shown to be the most humane death and people who die that way don't even realise what's happening. Even a firing squad would be more humane than what they're doing just now.

If it has to be lethal injection, what's wrong with a large dose of morphine. It'll do the job nicely, and the subject goes happy.

We were just discussing that among some nurses earlier, there is so many politics to all if thus that things like this wonte happen.

Not surprised, one botched execution is not going to change that specific states view on the death penalty.

It may find a more reliable method that pasts legal muster.

Nitrous Oxide would be the easiest and least unpleasant method.

I sure hope you're never falsely accused of a crime worthy of the death sentence.

In Palliative Care they tend to give higher levels of Morphine; if they O.D. it's not too big an issue. I agree it's probably a nicer way to go.

 

Personally I just hope when I die I'm so damned senile that I think I'm visiting my Great Grand Kids. As it should be.

It is very sad people even do not talk abolishing death penalty but judging which method would be the best to death, it is a pity, then they give human right lectures here and there.

^ I see no need to embolden the USA in your list.  Or do you have a particular axe to grind that makes you want to single them out over all the others?

Put them under with nitrous, then deliver a spike to the brain stem from a captive bolt gun. Guaranteed.
