Ohio judge: state must change means of execution as 2 of 3 drugs used can cause pain.

Notice the posters behind him. Kind of speaks for itself. Perhaps the judge would prefer execution by firing squad, the favorite of his boy Che Guevera in the background. Bullets are quicker and cheaper than the methods Ohio uses now, plus you can eliminate hindrances like a court system….if you’re following the Che/Castro methods.

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — A judge in Ohio says the state’s method of putting prisoners to death is unconstitutional because two of three drugs used in the lethal injection process can cause pain.

Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge said Tuesday the state’s lethal injection procedure doesn’t provide the quick and painless death required by Ohio law.

Burge said Ohio must stop allowing a combination of drugs and focus instead on a single, anesthetic drug.

The ruling is likely be appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court.

Ohio has executed 26 inmates since it resumed putting prisoners to death in 1999.

    Oh Bull !

    Pentothal and pancuronium do not cause pain especially if they are injected slowly and preceeded by lidocain. Once the condemed is asleep (after a few seconds) potassium chloride can be injected.

    Of course the IV must be in a vein.

    It will never happen but GW Bush and Cheney deserve lethal injection for war crimes. If it looked as if it could happen Cheney would flee to Debai and Bush would go to Paraquay where there are no extradition treaties.

    Not sure what the previous post is all about…anyway, I think what pisses me off most about this is not that the judge is an idiot, but that he has a partisan poster in his office…Aren’t judges considered non-partisan elected officials? I guess he just advertised his partisanship.

    I also wonder at the Che/Obama connection here. Is that the new ticket for the Dems? I heard that Obama has that same poster in his offices. Also, I believe that Guevara was an adherent to the philosophy of bringing other countries to your point of view through force. But isn’t he against the Iraq war? I’m so confused.

    PS…Che is dead and has been for some time. Either that or he is hanging out with Elvis at the McDonalds down the road.
