In case of a last minute reprieve, they do not want to risk the condemned of getting an infection.

Something like this is used to euthanize animals, so I see no reason it wouldn't work on people. Nitrogen is much cheaper than other gases like argon or neon.

Good question.

Wouldn't the needle already have been sterilized, at the manufacturing facility, before they knew where exactly it was going? And if you're already going to sterilize some needles, isn't it easier, in a manufacturing process, to sterilize all needles, rather than make an exception to sterilize only some? And wouldn't sending unsterile needles specifically for the condemned expose risk to the person setting up the IV? And finally, Human Dignity.

You are correct. The comic that originally asked this question used the term needle, when, in reality, he meant injection site.

Yes, but the needle is an IV needle. More than one person presses the switch to activate the flow. The condemned may have the needle in for as much as a half hour before the poison is turned on.

Believe it or not, no. A few guys didn't die the first time around. They get to appeal after not dying.......

Well it's because they want them to die of a lethal injection not dirty equipment, sounds harsh but true.

One reason thay hanging went out of vogue. An overweight convict was being hung. The trap door was big enough for him to go through, but his weight was so great, that when the rope stopped his head, his body continued to the ground, decapitating him.

Yikes. I suppose decapitation, even if accidental, would fall under the "cruel and unusual" category.

It's long been my belief that the method of execution should be on par with the actual crime. Someone that killed a man by putting him in a woodchipper, for example, must not feel the punishment is cruel or unusual, lest they would not have done it. Some executions could stretch over months. Though.

I kind of agree with you on this one. This kind of punishment might be more of a deterrent to would be murderers, rapists, etc. However, I suppose some of these perpetrators aren't really thinking about the personal consequences, when they commit these crimes. And I think what you're referring to is the Social Contract theory, where a violation of the implicit contract automatically exempts a perpetrator from its protections.

I prefer the "Karma is a b**ch" philosophy. But, yeah, pretty much.
