On Wednesday 23rd July Joseph Woods, pictured, took hours to die a slow, choking, extended death for the murder of 2 innocent people in 1989. It took approximately 2 hours to kill him. This is the third time recently that this has happened, (that we know of!)
The killing by lethal injection of an inmate in Ohio went similarly embarrassingly wrong in January. In Oklahoma in April an execution was halted when the inmate appeared to regain consciousness midway through! It seems the IV tube had not been inserted correctly.
Does it make me the devil’s spawn that I laughed when I heard this news?
How do you feel about these ‘mistakes’ and the death penalty in general?
Are you in the ‘2 wrongs don’t make a right’ camp or the ‘Fry the sucker!’ posse?
I’m just an idiot Editor. School me.
