-- After trying unsuccessfully for months to obtain lethal injection drugs, Oklahoma officials said on Wednesday they plan to use nitrogen gas to execute inmates once the state resumes using the death penalty, marking the first time a US state would use the gas to carry out capital punishment.
“We can no longer sit on the sidelines and wait on the drugs,” the state attorney general Hunter said. “Using nitrogen will be effective, simple to administer, easy to obtain and requires no complex medical procedures.”
“This method has never been used before and is experimental,” said Dale Baich, a federal public defender and one of the attorneys representing Oklahoma death row prisoners in a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s lethal injection protocol. “How can we trust Oklahoma to get this right when the state’s recent history reveals a culture of carelessness and mistakes in executions?”
