Capital punishment: How Missouri administers lethal injections

December 17, 2010
When a Missouri inmate is sentenced to death, he or she is strapped down and injected with three chemicals. Measured doses of thiopental and pancuronium bromide paralyze and render the prisoner unconscious before an injection of potassium chloride stops the heart. In 2009, Dennis Skillicorn was the 67th and most recent prisoner executed in Missouri.


However they do it, it was done to perfection tonight. It accomplished it's task  8) 8) 8)
My reason for supporting the death penalty? A murderer has less of a right to live than his victim and already presents a danger while incarcerated for life. They have nothing to lose when the most they can get is Life in prison without parole.


I kind of wish they would have included some Draino.


When looking at the chart above, it certainly seems plausible that if the procedure isn't followed to the letter, then problems could arise.
