En Oklahoma is niet de enige staat met dit probleem:
States around the country are struggling to administer lethal injection death sentences after a number of pharmaceutical companies have denied them drugs. Many states have turned to unregulated compounding pharmacies, which has triggered a series of lawsuits from inmates. Because many corrections departments have tried to keep compounded pharmacies’ identities anonymous, death row inmates argue that without knowing where execution drugs are produced, it’s impossible to know if they’re manufactured in a way that would produce a humane execution and therefore be constitutional.
Sommige staten overwegen hierdoor terug te grijpen naar de elektrische stoel of het executiepeleton.
Maar vinden burgers die oudere methoden nog acceptabel?
