ARKANSAS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- After nearly a dozen years without an execution, Arkansas is racing to put eight men to death next month over a 10-day period.

The unprecedented timetable is made necessary because the state’s supply of potassium chloride, one of the three ingredients in the lethal injection, will soon expire, state officials say.

If carried out, the executions beginning April 17 would make Arkansas the first state to execute this many inmates in such a short time since the death penalty was reinstated by the Supreme Court in 1976.

Going Old-School

Since Europe refused to continue supplying the U.S. with the drugs which are key to the lethal injection cocktail a couple of years back, many death-penalty states have been struggling to carry out executions.

Arkansas is the first state I've heard about planning mass executions while they've got some in supply though.

Three other states have simply elected to go old-school execution to avoid the problem.

Oklahoma reintroduced the gas chamber, Utah the firing squad and Tennessee the electric chair in response to a nationwide scarcity of lethal injection drugs for death row inmates.

Mississippi may become the fourth. Mississippi lawmakers want to bring back the firing squad, electric chair and gas chamber as execution methods, but for a different reason. State legislator Andy Gipson said he introduced House Bill 638 in response to lawsuits filed by “liberal, left-wing radicals” challenging the use of lethal injection drugs as cruel and unusual punishment.

^ Proving once again why you're Mock's Worst Troll, Biggie.

A. It wasn't band camp, it was literature camp.
B. There were no men there except the counselors, and only a few boy campers.
C. I only did thirteen, not sixteen of them -- 10 girls, 2 boys, and 1 male counselor.
D. While I quoted Shakespeare the whole time I was having my way with them, only one of them died.

Novice.

Sorry, Biggie, sometimes I still forget to take into account your inability to comprehend and infer the obvious.

Rectification: YOU are a novice at trolling, Biggie.

The counselor who died in the act was named K. Duncan.

Florida

[Image: lambrix_delay_02022016_43_1.jpg?itok=PwBfvF1z]

Florida is scheduled to execute a man today who was convicted of murdering two people decades ago after a long night of drinking.

Barring a successful last-ditch appeal filed with the U.S. Supreme Court, Michael Lambrix is scheduled to die by lethal injection at Florida State Prison at 6 p.m.

He would be the second inmate to be put to death by the state since it restarted executions in August.

Before then, the state had stopped all executions for months after a Supreme Court ruling that found Florida's method of sentencing people to death was unconstitutional. In response, the state Legislature passed a new law requiring death sentences to have a unanimous jury vote.

Lambrix's attorney, William Hennis, is arguing to the nation's high court that because his client's jury recommendations for death were not unanimous -- the juries in his two trials voted 8-4 and 10-2 for death -- they should be thrown out. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that Lambrix's case is too old to qualify for relief from the new sentencing system.

Lambrix was convicted of killing Clarence Moore and Aleisha Bryant after a long night of partying in a small central Florida town, Labelle, about 30 miles northeast of Fort Myers.

Lambrix has claimed in previous appeals that it was Moore who killed Bryant, and that he killed Moore only in self-defense.

"It won't be an execution," Lambrix told reporters in an interview at the prison Tuesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "It's going to be an act of cold-blooded murder."

Lambrix told the Miami Herald his final meal will be a Thanksgiving-style turkey dinner, which is what his mother promised to cook if he was exonerated. The paper reporters he went on a hunger strike last month to protest his death sentence but it ended after 12 days.

"We're the only Western country in the entire world that kills its citizens under the pretense of the administration of justice," Lambrix told reporters.
