Of course the Commission will conclude that there were no problems with the execution process, and that the world was flat.
It is unbelievable that this protocol was written in a civilized society--- instructions to kill another human being is never easy, although the actual act of killing by other methods (a bullet to the head) does not require more than five minutes training-- where to aim the bullet.
Jack Kevorkian MD was able to perform a painless murder, as shown on television ("60 Minutes") but he thirty plus years of animal experimentation and human venipuncture as a pathologist in high regard; did the Goons consult him-- now serving a life sentence? He;ll no! What does a doctor know about injections?
The whole debate is an example of how naive, just plain stupid, sadistic and ignorant the officials at Florida Department of Corrections are. They might have succeeded with fooling the public that murdering a human being is both like killing a sick pet, and as peaceful as medical anesthesia, complete with hollywood props, masked executioners, and hospital greens.
IT AIN'T SO!
Now 36 states are in a catch 22; they are using a method of murder they know little about, and are too dumb to realize that. Perish the thought that anyone in Corrections consult the medical literature! The grisley procedure requires a physician's input, and few physicians are willing to help.
And having a physician -- neurologist or anesythesiologist -- monitoring an ECG machine is like using an electron microscope to find the virus that causes colds. It is all for illusion, since I doubt that any diagnosis of pain can be made, given the circumstances, and a dying patternto begin with.
Hollywood gone awry and the results are deadly and ugly.
