Ohio proceeds with lethal injection execution

As well covered at ODPI, James Filiaggi lost his last-minute attempts to challenge the Ohio's lethal injection method and his execution went forward this morning.  The Sixth Circuit this morning issued this two-page opinion explaining its decision to deny Filiaggi a stay. 

Texas has another execution scheduled for this week.  In early may, Indiana, Nebraska and Tennessee all have scheduled executions, so I suspect we will be seeing more lethal injection litigation before too long.

I hear that it's difficult to get a protocol for that because the oath that electricians take prohibits them from wasting electricity

when we grant rights to those who showed no value in other peoples rights we show the weakness and inequality of laws that seek to provide equality. how dare these people on death row claim rights for crimes against innocent people. when you violate rights you should get none in return. it shows a mockery of the system. so the injection may hurt. bad luck. I would say that the next batch of injections be battery acid. do the crime, shame on you, claim your rights, shame on us.
