How do you run out of lethal injection drugs?

I've got a dozen things underneath my kitchen sink with skull and crossbones on them, and any hospital will probably have hundreds of concoctions that'll kill you if you take too much.  They can probably even tailor the amount of suffering involved in the sentence to your particular state's amount of bloodlust.

When was the last time we killed a millionaire?

Think about that for a minute.

The Straight Dope has a report on this.

And yet we want to make it public knowledge anytime a whore steps out on her man and uses birth control/gets an abortion/has a hitman falcon punch her.

Why not just write a law that says to give a big dose of morphine?

This is free market capitalism at its finest.

You see, the drug companies, whose products usually serve the purpose of extending or improving life, don't want to be known for their products being used to kill people.  Especially since the rest of the developed world considered capital punishment to be barbaric and outdated.

And give the criminal a possibility of enjoying his final moments? These vermin must suffer, because even though I call myself a Christian I don't really believe in heaven and hell. So we must punish them here.

My guess is the lethal injections used, and the whole ceremony involved in the strapping folks down and administering a sequence of drugs, came about from some legislators dark and twisted fantasy.

There are a lot of ways the death penalty could be quickly, cheaply and painlessly administrated without the weird and questionable drug cocktail that's commonly used.

Thunderdome would be cheaper, more entertaining, and more expedient. In fact, you could even broadcast it live for the ad revenue.

The current batch of heroin seems pretty effective.

Pharma companies don't want to sell you the drugs (which are used because gas chambers, hanging and "the chair" are too cruel and painful) and doctors won't help because it's a violation of the Hippocratic oath. Why can't states just take the hint? Killing in the name of the people is barbaric. Life imprisonment is a much worse punishment and if you've killed a prisoner and later discovered he was innocent, it's not like you can undo it.

Why not have him smoke pot until he od's? You've got plenty of that in the evidence locker.

Maybe the pharmaceutical companies should be working on drugs that give worms to ex-girlfriends.

I heard PA has a big stash and is selling them to the states who actually kill their prisoners.

Is there any effective difference from the pentobarbital that every vet's office gets by the pint?  Seems like it should work.

FWIW, the SCOTUS hasn't found either hanging or shooting to be cruel or unusual.

This is why I don't consider the US a civilized country.  We go to greater lengths to execute (sometimes falsely-convicted) criminals than we do to feed and clothe the unfortunate.

We as a society are no better than the Taliban.

Just go scoop up some cat shiat in a gel cap.

Killing really isn't that hard, and if the goal is for a relatively painless death...the ice pick.
just line up a little spring loaded ice pick do-hicky at an upward angle at the base of the skull, add some stirring motion to it.  Like in Goodfellas.

It is killing someone, the who pretentious idea of making it painless and non-horrible pisses me off.

\Of course you could just have them not killed, and give them a lifetime to consider what they did.  And if it turns out they were innocent, yeah, you can free them.  But Texas would not like that idea.
