Episode 26 (Law And Criminal Justice): What is the most humane method to execute an inmate?

Episode 26 (Law And Criminal Justice): What is the most humane method to execute an inmate?

Is it lethal injection, the electric chair, or other methods? I define 'humane' as 1. The amount of time that an inmate lives after the execution method has been administered, and 2. How consistent the method of execution is in delivering a guaranteed death. Did you know that the electric chair once set an inmate on fire? How about a rope that is too long, when used for a hanging, thus resulting in decapitation? Or that an inmate, in Tennessee, survived two lethal injection execution attempts to then be released by the prison warden? Listen to learn more about these topics, and more, in this Podcast.
