That's A Lot Of Killing Thugs

From Reuters:  Eight Arkansas death row inmates who are scheduled to die over a 10-day period in April filed a lawsuit in federal court on Monday to halt their executions, saying the state's rush to the death chamber was reckless and unconstitutional.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has approved back-to-back executions for April 17, 20, 24 and 27 to make sure a difficult-to-acquire lethal injection chemicals do not expire before the state can implement the punishments.

Arkansas' last execution was in 2005, and it has faced numerous legal challenges since then about its protocols and drug procurement secrecy.

Most U.S. death penalty states abandoned multiple executions on the same day about two decades ago because of factors including the additional strain put on the families of victims, inmates and prison staff, who needed time to review procedures and decompress.

"There is no justifiable rationale to hold multiple executions on the same day. Nor is there a justifiable rationale to hold eight executions within 10 days," according to the lawsuit, filed in Little Rock, Arkansas.
I was listening to NPR and some idiot said the guards may not habe the experience of an execution so the executions should not go forward.  My solution is to have that NPR moron volunteer as an inmate guinea pig and have the executioners practice on him so they get right.
And I have no problem having these thugs killed so quickly.  They are thugs who murdered  people.
Good bye and so long to these thugs.
