American death penalty

Arkansas is in the news again over its death penalty. Last April, Governor Asa Hutchinson gave the go ahead for 8 people on death row to be killed by lethal injection.
Why 8 people all in one month? well the opponents of the death penalty claim it was partly due to the expiry date of the drugs which are used in the executions . One of the drugs used is Midazolam. this drug has many people claiming it is in-humane. It has a history of leaving people semi-concious and at risk of serious pain.
The stock of Midazolam was due to expire in January 2019. Another of the drugs used in the executions , Vecuronium Bromide was due to expire in March 2018.
4 of the 8 prisoners were executed. A programe on TV on BBC3 from Sunday is featuring the story.

I have had fetanyl twice for freezing back of throat for a tube insertion (endoscopy) to examine my bile duct.
Instant numbness, they could have shoved a 2 inch diameter tube down my throat I doubt if I would have known. The effect was short lived and all back to normal 15 minutes later, if that. Although they do want you to hang around the hospital for an hour or so just in case of after effects.

I suppose it depends on the dosage.

I trust your not in a prison cell in Arkansas?

As a thought, using out of date drugs to execute people, is hardly going to result in a law suit is it? I doubt the recipients are going to complain!

Re: American death penalty

I must say Laurence , despite their best and most kind intentions it did feel like it at times . Job done and grateful for the NHS at its very best .

Re: American death penalty

I don't like the death penalty, but I don't object to it, either. The main thing I am concerned about is if they have the right guy.

Well, between the death penalty and mass shootings, there won't be many left for us to complain about.
