arbitrary... again: the geo-politics of lethal injection...

psssssssssst...look - just between you n' me, all execution methods are barbaric ... ever since executions began we humans have been trying to make it less gruesome, more sanitary, a public relations no brainer...

and the "geniuses" who thought up lethal injection thought they'd hit one out of the park (no you silly person, the oklahoma legislators who enacted the first law not the nazi doctors who invented it as a method of killing the "unwanted" during the reign of the terror under the third reich)...

seems they were wrong...

on tuesday a federal judge found that missouri's revised lethal injection procedure was not adequate to ensure that condemned inmates did not suffer unnecessary pain...the state had modified its protocol in response to a ruling last month by u.s. district judge fernando j. gaitan jr., who barred executions until missouri made significant changes to its procedure, which is similar to those used by about three dozen other states...

missouri tried...seems state officials contacted 298 anesthesiologists in missouri and southern illinois, but none was willing to participate in executions...

so the ban on executions in missouri stands...

as does the one in california...

but wait, tennessee has the same protocol - the same set of drugs ... but we still get to kill people???

maybe it's just me but that seems arbitrary II...

peace out - <3
