NBC News is following the developing story of Joseph Wood’s botched execution in Arizona. They highlight the lack of transparency in death penalty drug acquisition and the untested new combination of drugs used in the execution. NBC quotes Marc Hyden, stating,
“After last night’s botched execution in Arizona and the national spate of executions marred by mistakes, it appears that the government cannot execute someone without committing serious errors,” Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty said in a statement.
“This is a perfect example of why an inherently fallible system run by human beings must be limited especially when the system is veiled in secrecy.”
