Judson Phillips Suggests Conducting Executions With Heroin, Hanging, Firing Squad

Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips is reacting to Tuesday’s horrific botched execution of Oklahoma inmate Clayton Lockett with his typical nuance and sensitivity.

“Who really cares if he suffered a little?” Phillips asks of Lockett, who died of a heart attack 43 minutes after a lethal injection gone wrong.

“If the left insists that we use drugs to execute people, why not just a massive overdose of opiates?” he wonders.” According to some press reports, when actor Phillip Seymore Hoffman overdosed, death was so fast, the needle was still in his arm. Why don’t we simply use very pure heroin to execute inmates?”

“If the left doesn’t like lethal injection, there are lots of other ways to kill condemned inmates. Hanging works pretty well. So do the firing squad, the gas chamber and the electric chair,” he concludes.

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, lethal injection became the vogue solution for the death penalty. Liberals claimed that the existing methods of execution were barbaric; lethal injection was introduced in an attempt to make executions more “humane.”

When most states went to lethal injections, outside groups insisted that states use a three drug cocktail, which is unnecessarily complex, and now critics claim that it doesn’t work.

It does work. Every condemned convict it has been used on has died.

If the left insists that we use drugs to execute people, why not just a massive overdose of opiates? Every big city cop who has worked for any length of time tells stories of finding heroin addicts who shoot up pure heroin, OD and are found with the needle still in their arm.
