Default Only in AZ....Inmates offered ‘do-it-yourself’ execution

Montini: Inmates offered ‘do-it-yourself’ execution

The Arizona Department of Corrections has had trouble killing people.

It hasn’t been able to get the drugs it wants, and the drugs that it has gotten have transformed the already gruesome act of executing a person into a ghoulish, unacceptable freak show.

But the department persists.

The latest move, unique in – the world – offers Arizona death-row inmates the opportunity to perform a kind of do-it-yourself execution.

That is so wrong on so many levels that it's hard to begin to untangle all of them.
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.

No, said Dale Baich, an assistant federal public defender who represents the inmates in the lawsuit.

He explained that the policy is unfeasible because the Controlled Substances Act prohibits attorneys and inmates from getting the drugs.

"As a lawyer, I just can't go to local Walgreens and pick up a couple of vials of pentobarbital," Baich said."

Sorry for the Fox News post, but it was the first thing I pulled up that had a clear why this is legally not happening.

Oh, Arizona.

I wonder if anyone took 5 seconds to ask themselves why an attorney for the condemned prisoner, the one that is fighting to save his or her life, would be willing to assist the state in killing them? Even if it were legal?

This is insane, even for AZ.
