This thread is about killing people who have ruthlessly and mercilessly killed other humans.
No, it isn't. And herein lies the risk of allowing topic drift...

This thread has mostly been about a moral decision made either by state or parent (I won't use the term for fear of bringing more trolls) and heavily infested with trolls, and even slid into right s of the componets of various food chains (again, avoiding a pair of words that might bring more trolls).

That said, I prefer, for the subject of this thread, the use of a shot in the back of the head. While we may have to do a little study to find the best angle of the shot and velocity of the bullet (preferably a hollow point), lead has no expiration date and, if it is done right, the process is relatively quick, clean (compared to guillotine), reliable, and not overly painful.

Since most prisons have maybe 15-20+ locked doors they must pass through to escape, one must wonder hoe this happens.

Legislatures rarely change laws based on suggestions of those who haven't bribed them.

I am opposed to the death penalty but it really bothered me that one of the inmates who is now on death row had escaped from prison and murdered an Arkansas farmer before being recaptured.

Is Gov Hutchinson getting soft?

Arkansas has new supply of lethal drug; execution to be set
8/17/17 9:13 PM
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas has a new supply of a controversial lethal injection drug months after the state put four men to death over an eight-day period, officials said Thursday, as the state prepared to set an execution date for an inmate.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s office said he planned to schedule an execution for Jack Greene after a request from Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. Greene was convicted in the 1991 killing of Sidney Jethro Burnett after Burnett and his wife accused Greene of arson. He has exhausted his appeals and there’s no stay of execution in place, Rutledge told the governor in her request.

Hutchinson spokesman J.R. Davis said he doesn’t have a timeline yet for scheduling Greene’s execution.
Arkansas governor sets execution for inmate, spares another
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas' governor said Friday he will spare the life of a death row inmate whom the state planned to put to death earlier this year, but he also set a November execution date for another convicted killer.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson issued a proclamation scheduling a Nov. 9 execution for Jack Greene, marking the state's first scheduled lethal injection since putting four men to death in April. The executions were the first in Arkansas since 2005.

The governor later said he planned to commute the death sentence of another inmate, Jason McGehee, who was among eight men originally scheduled for execution in April.
Way behind schedule.
