Readings for Feb. 14 on execution methods

Readings for Feb. 14 on execution methods

Shoshana and Kate have provided two law review articles for posting/review in preparation for our class session on Wednesday Feb. 14:

Accompanying these reading they asked to pose the following questions:

1. What do you think about the Court's view that instantaneous death equates to painless death?

2. How do you feel about the theory that society's current values shape the acceptance/rejection of capital punishment and how this relates to current and past Constitutional methods of execution?

They also have provided this document regarding the Constitutional methods in each state:

As they explained to me, "we plan to go over the information contained in the law journal articles and also plan to discuss past methods of execution and current Constitutional methods. We also plan to discuss the current debate surrounding the Constitutionality of lethal injection."
