I'm sure that Broom was not haphazard in killing people. Why doesn't the judge come on down and let them give him a real show from start to finish how the process works on himself.

I agree but not in this case. Judge Frost is one of the better judges on the District Court. The State really needs to follow their own rules and protocols. But generally, I agree with you. Too many federal judges received their lifetime appointments based on pure political patronage and not competence.

If inmates and judges are worried about "efficiency", lets go back to the electric chair or gas chamber.

Forget about using all of the drugs and the stupid protocols. How about strapping 10 pounds of plastic explosive to the bad guy and detonating it? Death would be instantaneous, but the down side is, who would clean up the mess? Oh, we could have these stupid, arrogant federal judges clean up the mess!

Hang em in the public square instead of hiding the execution behind closed doors, should make the scum bags think twice.

The firing squad
or bring back hanging.
Use them as a secondary method. If an inmate sues because he doesn't want to get stuck with a needle ten times trying to find a vein, let's get ten marksmen who can hit his heart.

ODRC is a mess, and the new guy is not making it any better. These accusations are accurate. The department and it's leadership are to blame.

I am about tired of people pussy footing around about whats humane and whats not concerning death row inmates.Try considering if what they did to their victims was humane.As far as I am concerned once you enter prison you lose all rights period.If you cant find a vein then either shoot them in the head or fry their sorry butts.

I believe that the prisoners on DEATH ROW have rights, they have the same rights that they showed to their Victims....can't find the vein, hook up old "SPARKY" or get a hemp rope with a 13 loop slip knot, both are proven and worked for years...those bleeding heart judges could push the buttons via remote control...

>>Frost made clear that, "when administering the ultimate punishment to an individual as a consequence for breaking society's laws, the State be required to follow the law as well,"<<

Re-write the states death penalty law with one rule - "Upon issuance of a death warrant, anybody available can and will assist in the execution by any available means until such individual expires"

How can this rule then be broken?

The judge is very concerned about everything being efficient. Rope is very efficient. It gets the job done. AND IT'S REUSABLE. How do you get more efficient than that? Will somebody please explain that one for me. The judge's ruling just doesn't make any sense. If we used rope to hang Rommel Brown, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

Unconstituitionally haphazard my butt? Execute the murderer. Walmart sells rope and bullets. Take your pick and limit appeals to five years.
