Scientists leave labs, take to streets to defend research April 22, 2017 at 9:39 p.m.

Perhaps somebody should look up the definition of 'settled science' if we are claiming that opinions and editorials qualify.

What specifically would be bogus research?

Arkansas carries out 1 execution; at 11:56 p.m., drugs end Lee’s life April 21, 2017 at 5:52 p.m.

"But when a state misleads to get a supply I have to question whether they are acting on ethical grounds."
.
I don't disagree. But manufacturers, inmates, and lawyers have made drugs impossible to get. The state should be able to follow its laws - including the ability to execute a prisoner. As I said elsewhere, it's somewhat ironic given that a drug that would probably be more amenable (pentobarb) has essentially been cut off from use as an execution drug. But that isn't the point of these cases. The point is basically to try and abolish the death penalty. And THAT I have a problem with.

Arkansas carries out 1 execution; at 11:56 p.m., drugs end Lee’s life April 21, 2017 at 2:43 p.m.

"My point is that I want all options exercised before someone is put to death."
.
Except, the options were exercised over and over. And even things that shouldn't be options - like claiming a drug near expiration is less potent. Or that the manufacturer is trying to regulate third party sales and wants the state to give back the drug. Or that this is cruel and unusual given that the SCOTUS said it was less than a year ago. All things that should NOT have come up in this case but did.

Arkansas justices clear stops on lethal drug April 21, 2017 at 9:37 a.m.

The state spends enough money that I doubt many businesses will voluntarily decide not to sell drugs to the the state. As for challenge proof, given how often this particular cocktail has been challenged in court, even after courts let it stand, I submit that there will no such thing. Interestingly, drugs that would be far more amenable (e.g pentobarb), are unavailable due to manufacturers restrictions in selling the drugs (due to court challenges and the resulting bad press). The inmates and lawyers, ironically, are essentially the reason this cocktail is used.

After Pine Bluff shooting, deputy resigns April 15, 2017 at 8:33 p.m.

That assumes the guy here posed no threat to the cops life OR that the cop could overtake him in a fist fight (like Jonesboro). I'm not sure how one can make that assumption with the facts presented here. Well, one that isn't automatically anti-cop, that is.

Arkansas AG: Remove circuit judge from executions case, reverse order April 15, 2017 at 5:55 p.m.

Rutledge is the AG and is tasked with upholding the laws of the state. Her comments are part of her appeal. Griffen laid down on a cot and pretended to be an executed criminal during an anti-capital punishment rally. And then he granted a stay (or was the stay before?). If you don't see the difference, there is nothing any of us can say that will change your mind.

Arkansas AG: Remove circuit judge from executions case, reverse order April 15, 2017 at 2:03 p.m.

What's your point, Jake? That some people are hypocritical idiots? Good for them. And who the hell is Aqua Blue? I think judges should be very careful what they say outside of the court regardless of topic. Griffen fails time and time again. As I said originally, capital punishment is but ONE example. It is not the ONLY example. Therefore, your point is, well, pointless in response to mine. Nice try, though. Well, no, it really wasn't. Sorry.
