Notable editorials on lethal injection scrummages
Besides making great fodder for a modern-day Kafka novel, the litigation scrummages over lethal injection also provide grist for the editorial mill:
- The San Francisco Chronicle today has this editorial entitled "Kinder, gentler executions." Here's its opening: "As California readies for its third Death Row execution in two months, the spectacle of killing an inmate just keeps becoming more absurd."
- The Bradenton Herald today has this editorial entitled "Sad, not cruel." Here are key passages: "No question the nation could use a serious, in-depth debate on the death penalty.... But the issue here is lethal injection. The cruel-and-unusual punishment argument is really grasping at straws by death penalty opponents."
