I agree with you Rick, if the states didnt have to scramble for drugs none of this would be an issue. I wouldnt be shocked if we started to see state legislatures bring back the electric chair etc. Executions are going to happen. The drug companies are going to make executions more painful and are really making it harder on the offenders.

Naturally, an execution shouldn't take two hours. I agree with the others that the inmate is dead, and that's the purpose of an execution, is it not?  We wouldn't be at this point if states didn't have to scramble to find alternative drugs to execute inmates with; because the primary suppliers of the more widely-used chemicals such as sodium thiopental and pentobarbital are no longer making their products available to prisons for execution purposes. Would Arizona ever bring the gas chamber out of mothballs?  Technically, it is still a method of execution that is available to inmates who were sentenced to die prior to 1992, but Donald Harding and Walter LaGrand were the last two inmates executed by lethal gas in Arizona; all subsequent executions have been via lethal injection.

Let's hope so.  Isn't there an obstructionist judge in PA that continues to halt the dates with justice?

Hubert Michael Jr.'s execution set for Sept. 22

By Rick Lee Daily Record/Sunday News

Updated:   07/25/2014 08:05:17 AM

Governor Tom Corbett has signed a death warrant for Hubert Lester Michael Jr., who pleaded guilty to kidnapping and first-degree murder for the shooting death of 16-year-old Trista Eng, of Franklin Township.

This, Michael's fourth warrant, sets his date of execution for Sept. 22.

Michael, 57, came close to execution in 2012, before receiving a stay from the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

That same court lifted Michael's stay three weeks ago.

Michael kidnapped Eng on July 12, 1993, as she was walking to work. He shot her three times and left her body on state game lands in Warrington Township.

After a number of hearings where he changed his mind about pleading to or fighting the murder charge, he entered an open plea in October 1994.

Months later, Michael refused to allow his attorney to argue against the death sentence and was then sentenced him to death.

I normally don't waste time posting PA execution dates but word around the campfire is that this one is the real deal.  PA has only snuffed 3 murderers since 1976, all volunteers so we'll see.  I am sure it will come as a surprise when he is strapped kicking and screaming onto the gurney thinking why am I the first one8)

Botched Execution Nothing to Lose Sleep Over



On July 24, 2014, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

So bleeding heart liberals are in a tizzy over the fact that it took almost two hours for Joseph Rudolph Wood to die after his lethal injection in Arizona on Wednesday.  His attorneys claim their client was “gasping and snorting” for an hour and death penalty opponents will certainly use this incident to complain of cruel and unusual punishment.

You know what I think is cruel and unusual?  What Wood did to land on death row in the first place, that’s what.

According to the Arizona Department of Corrections website, Wood “had been involved in a turbulent relationship for 5 years,” including “numerous breakups and several domestic violence incidents” with his ex-girlfriend, 29-year-old Debbie Dietz.

Twenty-nine years old.  Her whole life still ahead of her.  Now here’s the rest of the story…

“Debbie was working at a local body shop owned by her family. On August 7, 1989, Wood walked into the shop and shot Gene Dietz, age 55, in the chest with a .38 caliber revolver, killing him.

“Gene Dietz’s 70-year-old brother was present and tried to stop Wood, but Wood pushed him away and proceeded into another section of the body shop.

“Wood went up to Debbie, placed her in some type of hold, and shot her once in the abdomen and once in the chest, killing her. Wood then fled the building.

“Two police officers approached Wood and ordered him to drop his weapon. After Wood placed the weapon on the ground, he reached down and picked it up, and pointed it at the officers. The officers fired, striking Wood several times. Wood was transported to a local hospital where he underwent extensive surgery.”

So this guy beats up his girlfriend multiple times.  She breaks up with him.  He shows up at her place of business without warning.  Kills her unarmed father for no reason.  Kills his unarmed ex for breaking up with him.  Then tries to kill two police officers.

And I’m supposed to feel badly that this murderous piece of human garbage didn’t die a quick and totally painless death?

Wood got to live almost 25 years longer than the two people whose lives he snuffed out.  How are their murders not cruel and unusual punishment for both the victims and their families?

As for death penalty opponents who claim the death penalty is not a deterrent, let me assure you that thanks to the death penalty Joseph Rudolph Wood absolutely, positively, without a doubt, will never, ever murder an innocent person again.  He has been permanently deterred

As for the afterlife, I can only hope that when Wood reaches the Gates of Hades, Saddam Hussein is the greeter, takes a fancy to him, and makes him his boy-toy for eternity.

Rest in pain, Mr. Wood.  Rest in pain.

18 -  General Death Penalty / Scheduled Executions / Leon Taylor - MO - 9/10/14

September execution date set for Kansas City-area killer Leon Taylor


19 hours ago  •  By Jeremy Kohler

The Missouri Supreme Court today set a Sept. 10 execution date for Leon Taylor, who murdered a service station attendant in Independence, Mo., in 1994.

Leon Taylor, 56, killed Robert Newton during a robbery that was witnessed by Newton’s 8-year-old stepdaughter. According to trial testimony, Taylor also pointed the gun at the girl’s head and pulled the trigger, but the weapon jammed.

Missouri uses a single heavy dose of the sedative pentobarbital.

"The State of Missouri has its own execution protocol," Scott Holste, the press secretary for Gov. Jay Nixon, wrote in an email. "This protocol has been upheld by the courts, and used by the Department of Corrections to fulfill its obligation under the law and carry out these sentences for the most heinous of crimes in an efficient, effective and humane manner.  The Governor continues to support the ultimate punishment imposed by juries and courts for the most merciless and violent crimes."

The next execution in the United States is scheduled to be in Missouri on Aug. 6. Michael Shane Worthington, convicted of murder, rape and first-degree burglary in the slaying of Melinda "Mindy" Griffin, 24, at her condominium in Lake Saint Louis on Sept. 30, 1995.
