Accuracy in Media

As the Washington Examiner reported:

“In a victory for death penalty proponents and states, the Supreme Court ruled Monday that a part of the drug cocktail used to execute inmates does not violate the Constitution.”

“The 5-4 ruling found that the use of the drug midalozam does not violate the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment.”

“Midalozam is one of the drugs used in a new three-drug cocktail employed to execute inmates, which had never before been used in executions. The plaintiffs, three death row inmates in Oklahoma, argued the drug, the first administered to an inmate, doesn’t relieve pain and increases suffering when the other two drugs are administered to stop the heart from beating.”
