Lethal Injection Under Scrutiny

Lethal Injection Under Scrutiny

There are 153 comments on the The Associated Press story from Sep 28, 2007, titled Lethal Injection Under Scrutiny . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“What causes it to go wrong is that the protocols aren't carried out properly”

Lethal injection was supposed to be the humane, enlightened way to execute inmates and avoid the pain and the gruesome spectacle of firing squads, the electric chair and the noose.

But now it, too, is under legal attack as cruel and unusual, with the U.S. Supreme Court agreeing this week to hear arguments that lethal injection can cause excruciating pain.

Some supporters of the procedure say the notion that inmates suffer is unproven. And they argue that there is nothing wrong with lethal injection itself; instead, they say, the problem is inadequately trained executioners. Read more

Dear brother of Dan Short,

You should be 100 percent sure of making accusations before you say them. I hope that you are 100 percent sure that Sahnnon and his brother are guilty because you will be called to judgment someday. It's stupiid people like you that believe what they read. I hope that you get accussed someday for something that you didn't do and a jury of stupid people, like yourself, will sit in judgment of you.

TIme and again, however well we know the landscape of love,
and the little church-yard with lamenting names,
and the frightfully silent ravine wherein all the others
end: time and again we go out two together,
under the old trees, lie down again and again
between the flowers, face to face with the sky.

Funny all you people that crop and claim to love Shannon. I happen know for a fact very few of you take time to write him or send him money or assistance with his many endeavors. Maybe the Agofsky family shows love differently huh.


We people didn't just "crop" up. Shannon knows why "I" don't send money. And I wrote my nephews for many years and again Shannon knows why I stopped. So you shut up also! This family has immense love for those boys and with that--immense pain. How dare you!!

The night of the kidnapping and murder I was 16 working for Hudson foods. When I got off work I drove down main street to drop my sister a chevy van was parked in front of bills booze. I drop off my sister and drove to sulphur springs the van was at state line. Some thing about the van created me out . It was a Chevy van not a Ford.. I was interviewed a PI but never by the police. My name is Mitch Rogge. I swear it was a Chevy van.. a lady driving it with big glasses.. an antenna on driver mirror. But nobody would listen. I am almost 45 now an I'm still haunted by that van.

Any of these women who write this guy have a self respect problem. Do you realize you are actually writing and flirting with a convicted murderer? If he ever gets out and shows up at you door you better hide the duct tape. You will be next when you puss him off.
