"Oklahoma examines what went wrong in botched execution"

"The governor told a news conference she had called for investigations not only into Lockett’s cause of death, but into whether the Department of Corrections followed execution protocols and even the protocols themselves."

Wonder how long the 'report' will take to be written.

The longer it would take for OK to schedule another execution would be inversely related to public opinion's blood lust; being such good Christians.

1. I am adamantly against the Death Penalty.

Having said that - one of the greatest hazards faced in industry is entering a place with low oxygen levels. People will walk right into an enclosure or climb into a pit, take several breaths, pass out and die. The real problem gets even worse when someone else sees a man down and runs to their side to help them. Now two people are down.

It would be very easy to put someone into a sealed room and gradually replace the oxygen with argon. The person would lose consciousness and die without ever realizing there is a problem. The room could be unsealed and flushed with fresh air with no hazard to other people.

I really think the reason no one has ever used this method is proof that capital punishment is more about vengeance than protecting society.

Firing squad is pretty quick as well. Or guillotine.
