Manufactures of execution drug think Kentucky’s death penalty is broken

From the Lexington Herald-Leader “Companies won’t sell Ky. lethal injection drug“:

Amid a nationwide shortage of a lethal injection drug, documents obtained under a freedom of information request show two pharmaceutical companies declined to sell Kentucky a supply of the sedative.The state e-mails obtained by The Associated Press show one firm, KRS Global Biotechnology of Boca Raton, Fla., explained its refusal by saying there was no doctor involved in the purchase of sodium thiopental, even though Kentucky law bars physicians from being involved in administering executions.

    End the murder by the state of Kentucky and act like human beings. Three cheers for the companies refusing to sell drugs that kill. When will we ever learn? Killing is always murder We are getting the same attitude of China where the world sees the largest number of executions and where more than three million are in slave labor camps. (and we claim to be human0 The companies need to be congratulated!!
