Texas Execution With Single Drug

Sextuple murderer Robert Wayne Harris was executed in Texas yesterday.  See AP story here; prior post here.

How did Texas's single-drug method, adopted in July, work?  Michael Graczyk reports in the AP story, "He snored briefly as the lethal dose of pentobarbital began, then all breathing stopped."

California's three-drug method remains mired in litigation because of the risk of extreme pain when the second and third drugs are injected, if the first has not been administered properly.  The single-drug method carries a risk of snoring.

Get off your duff, Jerry.
