However, an expert doctor recently testified on the execution, stating that “this was not a humane execution.” Executions in Ohio are currently under a moratorium, as Ohio studies lethal injection more. However, Ohio, like many other states, has made many attempts to find a safe and dependable execution protocol and it has failed repeatedly. The death penalty is a system broken beyond repair. Th

Botched Arizona Execution Most Recent Death Penalty System Failure

The death penalty has made national news again, this time due to another botched execution in Arizona.

The recent botched execution has sparked outrage from both sides of the aisle. Also check out this recent piece from the Washington Times, “A Conservative Case Against the Death Penalty.” The death p
