https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/03/us/arkansas-death-penalty-drug.html?_r= Kind of surprising given my state has not executed anyone in 11 years. Equally surprising that this has been pushed along mostly by the issue of obtaining adequate supplies of drugs for lethal injections. Personally, I think they should use firing squads again. Equally lethal. Bullets will never become rare or unavailable. Probably just about as painless (relatively) as a lethal injection anyway. I've never understood the huge effort to make executions literally as bloodless as possible all to make the persons or institutions conducting the executions feel better about themselves. Dead is dead.
