Reviewing the lethal injection scrummages
This morning's New York Times has this article by Adam Liptak reviewing all the recent litigation over lethal injection. Here's how it starts:
Judges in several states have started to put up potentially insurmountable roadblocks to the use of lethal injections to execute condemned inmates. Their decisions are based on new evidence suggesting that prisoners have endured agonizing executions. In response, judges are insisting that doctors take an active role in supervising executions, even though the American Medical Association's code of ethics prohibits that.
