Some lethal injection headlines

As the lethal injection scrummages rage on, here are some Sunday headlines:

  • In Montana, as detailed here, the "legal wrangling over the scheduled execution of David Dawson 12 days from now is playing out against a national debate over whether lethal injection is, indeed, the most merciful way to impose the ultimate criminal punishment."
  • In Missouri, as detailed here, the dyslexic doctor who had presided over lethal injections has been revealed as having been "sued for malpractice more than 20 times, by his own estimate, and was publicly reprimanded in 2003 by the state Board of Healing Arts for failing to disclose malpractice suits to a hospital where he was treating patients."
