In reality the libs lie about gasping for air, many observers say he was SNORING.
PHOENIX (AP) A condemned murderer took nearly two hours to die and gasped for about 90 minutes during an execution that quickly intensified America's debate on capital punishment. It is the third prolonged execution this year in the U.S.
The execution Wednesday of 55-year-old Joseph Rudolph Wood took so long that his lawyers had time to file an emergency appeal while it was ongoing. The Arizona Supreme Court also called an impromptu hearing on the matter and learned of his death during the discussions.

"He has been gasping and snorting for more than an hour," Wood's lawyers wrote in a legal filing demanding that the courts stop it. "He is still alive."

Earlier this year in Ohio, an inmate gasped in similar fashion for nearly a half-hour. An Oklahoma inmate died of a heart attack in April, minutes after prison officials halted his execution because the drugs weren't being administered properly.
States have refused to reveal details such as which pharmacies are supplying lethal injection drugs and who is administering them out of concerns that the drug makers could be harassed. States have been scrambling to find potentially lethal drugs as several European-based pharmaceutical companies refuse to supply them if they are intended for executions.
Wood filed several appeals that were denied by the U.S. Supreme Court, including one that said his constitutional rights were violated when the state refused to reveal such details.
