    Arkansas Execution of Kenneth Williams ‘Horrifying’

    http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/let...n-week-n752086

    CUMMINS UNIT, Arkansas — The lawyer of a convicted killer who was put to death by lethal injection Thursday has demanded an investigation after his client repeatedly convulsed during the "horrifying" execution.

    Media witnesses reported "coughing, convulsing, lurching, jerking" for a 10 to 20 second period during the execution of Kenneth Williams at the Cummins Unit, where the Arkansas death chamber is housed.

    The allegations come amid questions around the use of the controversial lethal injection drug midazolam.


    The state's stocks of the drug were due to expire and it has been racing to execute a record number of inmates — Williams was the fourth to be executed inside of a week.

    "This is the most I've seen an inmate move three or four minutes in," said Associated Press reporter Kelly Kissel, who witnessed his tenth execution Thursday night.

    We should use a lethal dose of heroine and fentanil to put these people to death. I'm told it is a very peaceful way to go and fool-proof.
