Lots and lots of lethal headlines

As always, there is lots of media coverage and commentary on a variety of recent death penalty developments.  Here is just a sample:

Lethal Injection Issues

  • From the Daytona Beach News-Journal here, "Injection as lethal torture"
  • From the San Jose Mercury News here "Death penalty goes on trial" and here, "Executions' constitutionality the focus of San Jose hearings"
  • From the Virginian Pilot here, "Swift and painless or cruel and unusual?"

Other Death Penalty Issues

  • From the Daytona Beach News-Journal here, "Justice random as a lightning bolt"
  • From the Mail & Guardian here, "For eight minutes we sat there, waiting for him to die"
  • From the San Antonia Express News here, "Shoddy lawyering can prove fatal in death row appeals"
  • From the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader here, "Down on the death sentence? Law changes, attitude shift cut number of decisions"
