Botched, like John Kerry’s joke:
Gov. Jeb Bush suspended all executions in Florida after a medical examiner said Friday that prison officials botched the insertion of the needles when a convicted killer was put to death earlier this week.
As a result of the chemicals going into Diaz’s arms around the elbow, he had an 12-inch chemical burn on his right arm and an 11-inch chemical burn on his left arm, Hamilton said.
Separately, a federal judge in California imposed a moratorium on executions in the nation’s most populous state, declaring that the state’s method of lethal injection runs the risk of violating the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
Aww, what a shame. You know what the convicted killer could have done to prevent this so-called botched execution? Wait. Wait. Not murder someone.
One liberal/socialist blogger went as far to hold Gov. Jeb Bush responsible. Silly lib, it was George Bush’s fault.
It’s one of those rare occasions Oliver Willis is correct:
Florida is halting death penalties because one guy supposedly suffered? Certainly not as much as multiple victims and their families did as they waited 27 years for him to be executed.
