Die Rubrik: "Mal Nettes zwischendurch" wäre für dieses ernste Thema fehl am Platze. Nachdem ich dieses Forum, zumindest bislang, als politisches Forum und noch sehe, entsetzen mich die Nachrichten aus den USA. Auch ich war bereits einmal in Ulm, AR und in Stuttgart, AR. Doch deren Ideologie wäre dringend zu hinterfragen.
Nun: HCN ist nicht gemeint. Jedoch krankt dieses System der sogenannten unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten.
All four executions recently carried out by the state of Arkansas were done in accordance with protocols established, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Friday.
Pressed on concerns surrounding the last execution, Arkansas' governor said he saw no signs of problems with Kenneth Williams' death Thursday by lethal injection.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette previously reported, citing information from a media witness, that Williams' body lurched 15 times over a period of 10 to 15 seconds as he was "coughing, convulsing, lurching, jerking with sound even with the [execution chamber] microphone turned off."
"It was obvious to me that there was no indication of pain," Hutchinson said, referencing accounts that Williams showed "10 seconds of movement" before he was pronounced dead.
Hutchinson said coughing can be a side effect of the administering of one of the three drugs: midazolam.
The governor added that there is no reason for an independent investigation into Williams' execution.
A standard review process after the inmates' deaths will provide details regarding any issues that arose, he said.
Over an eight-day span, the state put to death inmates Ledell Lee, Jack Jones, Marcel Williams and Kenneth Williams.
Eight executions had initially been set in April, though four prisoners were spared pending further review of their cases.
