Arkansas continues to experience challenges, pitfalls, and delays that have halted their efforts to execute eight death row inmates scheduled to occur in April. The key reason ... the drug protocol to be used may cause too much pain.
Perhaps Arkansas should just abandon their death by injection policy and go with the same method that each murderer used on his victims, all women or children.
That would include strangling with a coffee pot cord, shooting with a high caliber revolver, throat slitting, striking 36 times with a tire iron, and just left to die after being bound and beaten.
Would that be deemed more fair and square?
