Cruel and Unusual?

The Sound of Ideas

Last week's execution of an Ohio inmate was called "torture" by the man's daughter. He gasped for air and took an unusually long time to die. The ACLU says that's reason enough to suspend executions until we know Ohio's new two-drug lethal injection method preserves an inmate's constitutional protection against cruel and unusual punishment. Others say inmates have no right to a pain-free death. We'll discuss it tomorrow at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
