Another Botched Execution: 2 Hours to Die
Joseph Wood was executed in Arizona yesterday. It took two hours to kill him. The execution was not halted, even though he repeatedly gasped and snorted during it.
An Associated Press reporter who witnessed the execution saw Wood start gasping shortly after a sedative and a pain killer were injected into his veins. He gasped more than 600 times over the next hour and 40 minutes.
Most disgusting comment, from a relative of the victim named Richard Brown:
Why didn't we give him Drano?
