Default Updated Death Penalty Methods- State by State

I hope folks find the following information useful.
This is the current Death Penalty Methods- State by State.

The reference link is from Findlaw.com

Lethal Injection
  • Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut*, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico*, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming, U.S. Military, U.S. Government
  • *New Mexico and Connecticut abolished the death penalty but their laws were not retroactive, leaving inmates on death row in each state.

  • Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, [Oklahoma], South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia

Gas Chamber
  • Arizona, California, Missouri, [Wyoming]

  • Delaware, New Hampshire, Washington

Firing Squad
  • Utah: The state authorized the use of a firing squad in the event that the drugs required for lethal injection are unavailable. Prior to this, the firing squad was an option, but was only allowed for inmates who chose this method prior to its elimination in 2004.
  • Oklahoma: The state allows firing squad only if lethal injection and electrocution are found unconstitutional.
"One of the casualties of [prison life] is the numbness of the heart"- Man on Fire

There is no question that in virtually all circumstances in which people are doing things in order to get rewards, extrinsic tangible rewards undermine intrinsic motivation." the New Scientist (12th April 2011, pp 40-43)

" Every life you touch, every fear or pain you ease, every loved ones' heart that you ease the burden from is the reason you are here."
