generallyso: Doesn't lethal injection render the person unconscious very early in the process?


Yes, IF it is done in a professional and competent way.

But in this case however, we had a penal system Hell-bent on murdering some people even if the drug companies boycotted them, so they had Beavis & Butthead working the buttons.

"Whoah! uh huh huh huh. Look at him gasp, or something. uh huh huh huh. huh huh"

"Yeah! Hmhh heh heh heh heh. Now he's moving up and down. Push another button Butthead. Push em! PUSH EM! BOoOOoOIiiINNNNNnNGGGG!!Mh heh ehehehehheheheehe....!"

COMALite J: Nitrogen is nearly 80% of the atmosphere as it is. It's necessary for life processes, so no need to be concerned about disposal. It would be cheap and very effective. No feeling of suffocation, as that results not from the lack of oxygen but from carbon dioxide buildup, which wouldn't happen with nitrogen asphyxiation. You breathe normally, maybe feel a bit light-headed, then lights out.


Actually, just replace the typical 80/20 mixture of nitrogen/oxygen with an 80/20 mixture of nitrogen/helium, and make them read their final words that way.

/For hilarious justice.

To the anti-death penalty people - The drugs used are the same ones used during surgery.  10 minutes in he wasn't struggling for breath, he was unconscious.  When a brain dead person on life support makes an audible gasp or something like it, the doctors explain it's a reflex, not a conscious breath.  So no, this guy making a noise 10 minutes later doesn't mean he suffocated to death.  He didn't suffer, he had the same medications surgery patients get.  He died quite peacefully.

To the pro-death penalty people - The drugs used are the same ones used during surgery.  10 minutes in he wasn't acting, he was unconscious.  When a brain dead person on life support makes an audible gasp or something like it, the doctors explain it's a reflex, not a conscious breath.  So no, this guy making a noise 10 minutes later doesn't mean he was acting.

For farks sake people.  Lots of reasons to be pro or anti death penalty.  But stop making shiat up.

dittybopper: Theaetetus: dittybopper: Protected by attorney-client privilege, and in any case, "making a show of your death" as a way to protest capital punishment is protected political speech.

The whole thing is hearsay anyways.

Yep, and while it may fall under an exception, because in effect it was a "death bed" statement, it's still the statement of a person who had so little consideration of his fellow man that he raped and murdered a pregnant woman.

But even if every thing he said was completely true, I still think it would be protected, as it is "speech" intended to effect change to a matter of public policy.

First Amendment protects exaggeration.  Fark is proof of that.


Fark is perfect, and never exaggerates.

zimbomba63: I find it odd that, where ethical suicide is allowed, they give the patient an overdose of barbiturates and they simply nod off, with their families around them.  But, when the same is done to these scumbags, it's inhumane torture.  Garbage like this needs to go, I don't care if it's a bullet to the back of the head.


Barbiturates?  Goddammit, I thought they said "bar biatch urates"!

Oops.

Yeah, but you're not a person who cares about those who you might affect, like a convicted murderer does.

What were the dearly departed's last words? Any smidgen of remorse? Did he acknowledge his victims or did he, like so many before him, partner with no less than Jesus himself in forgiving us all?

Allso, does the prison monitor the inmate's vital stats during the execution? I always see the length of time it took from the start (injection of the drugs) till the inmate dies, and observations of the inmate's movements, but do they also monitor things like heart rate, etc., which might give an indication of whether he was actually physically suffering or if his visible movements were more exaggerated than what their monitoring showed?
