    Doctors won't give Ohio execution advice

    Doctors won't give Ohio execution advice | Cincinnati.com | The Cincinnati Enquirer

    COLUMBUS - Ohio is struggling to find medical professionals willing to advise the state on the best way to put condemned inmates to death.

    Attorney General Richard Cordray says in a court filing that ethical and professional considerations are deterring doctors and others from offering advice about lethal injection.

    Executions are on hold in Ohio while the state develops new injection policies following a Sept. 15 execution that was stopped because the inmate had no usable veins.

    Cordray's concerns came in a filing in U.S. District Court Friday.

    He says his office has reached out to judges, police and lawmakers for help trying to find medical professionals willing to talk to the state.

    He also says five lawmakers he didn't identify have agreed to try to find medical staff to help.
    I guess they don't want my advice on how to put convicted murderers to death, but if they do I'd tell them. I do see how it could be an ethical dilemma for a doctor. I'm sure there is a doctor somewhere in the state that is willing to help though.

    Well, I'm not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Seriously though, they need a doctor to figure this out??? I'll give some free advice, 1 bullet between the eyes. Problem solved!

    In either lake Erie or the Ohio River, that would constitute cruel and unusual punishment.

    They could be used to hold targets on Marine live fire ranges, making the targets more interactive.

    We could just feed em buckeyes, they are supposed to be poisonous nuts, and then we wouldn't have to deal with any gators.

    Seriously, why not return to the firing squad. What is actually required? A post, blindfold, 5 rifles, 1 bullet, 4 blanks, and 5 willing shooters. It's cheaper than the other methods, and the only thing you'd need a doctor for is to pronounce the time of death afterwards.

    I'd prefer 4 bullets, and 1 blank. Or forget the blank and get 5 guys who don't need the possible out of having maybe drawn the blank.

    Or an automatic chain gun 3 feet from their chair.

    I like that idea. I vote for the chain gun.

    Cerate a "new" Gas Chamber and arrange for an internal combustion chamber gasoline-powered engine (from a remote location to produce the lethal Carbon Monoxide required to produce death). At the Warden's cue, pipe it into the Gas Chamber with a remote stethoscope attached to the ISDP (Inmate Subject to the Death Penalty). 1 minute after the heart has stopped beating, exhaust fans will remove the deadly gas through the roof of the structure (as was done in the old days).

    This is both humane and cost effective.

    Problem solved.
