I have no problem with this.
From the Chicago Tribune: An Arizona inmate took almost two hours to die by lethal injection on Wednesday and his lawyers said he "gasped and snorted" before succumbing in the latest botched execution to raise questions about the death penalty in the United States.
The execution of convicted double murderer Joseph Wood began at 1:52 p.m. at a state prison complex, and the 55-year-old was pronounced dead just shy of two hours later at 3:49 p.m., the Arizona attorney general's office said.
During that time, his lawyers filed an unsuccessful emergency appeal to multiple federal courts that sought to have the execution halted and their client given life-saving medical treatment.
The appeal, which said the procedure violated his constitutional right to be executed without suffering cruel and unusual punishment, was denied by Justice Anthony Kennedy of the U.S. Supreme Court.
"He gasped and struggled to breathe for about an hour and 40 minutes," said one of Wood's attorneys, Dale Baich.,0,33517.htmlstory
So, if the guy was not conscious while he was snoring, the guy was not suffering.  Hell, my poor wife has to listen to me snore, that's probably cruel and unusual punishment.
And look what this thug did- he killed his ex-girlfriend and her father in his auto repair shop in cold blood.  He killed the father, after waiting for him to get off the phone and then shot the daughter.
Of course, you  wouldn't find this out by reading the Chicago Tribune as they are clearly anti-death penalty and their feelings got in the away of reporting the facts.
So, good bye you thug.  Even if you suffered during the execution, it is nothing tat you put the victims and their families through.
