Executions are down 12% in 2010.
Yay, the upside of America being a brokeass! Racially disproportionate executions take a modest holiday!
The United States is experiencing a shortage of the lethal injection drug, sodium thiopental, and we’re too poor to buy more.
Arizona imported some from the UK, but the UK isn’t exactly thrilled to provide the drug since they abolished the death penalty.
Jesus Christ! We can’t even manufacture this! Must the world make everything for our spoiled asses?!
Five states postponed or canceled executions in the last year.
