8 Death-Row Inmates Will Be Executed In 10 Days. Here’s Why!

PRESS TV      Posted Sun. April 02, 2017

The US state of Arkansas is scheduled to execute eight death-row inmates over the course of 10 days this month amid an outcry from death penalty opponents.

The inmates will be executed between April 17 and 27, a move that critics have denounced as “unprecedented.”

The state is rushing the death warrants because the supply of one of the drugs it uses in lethal injections is reaching its expiration date.

“I know that Texas has executed a lot, but none, not even Texas, on that kind of schedule,” Dr. Allen Ault, who has been a commissioner of corrections in three states, told NPR.

“The other problem is that pharmaceutical companies and all medical professions will not involve themselves in executions. So this is the problem. They can’t get the appropriate drugs anymore,” he added.

In addition, the state is having a hard time finding enough volunteers to witness the executions. The Arkansas Code requires that at least six “respectable citizens” be present when a convict is put to death.

Typically, family members and relatives of the inmate are present. But sometimes, a state requires that people who have no stake in the case be a witness as well.

“It’s not natural watching the intentional taking of a human life,” Robert Dunham, director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington DC, told CNN. “It has an emotional impact on people.”

Arkansas allows people to witness several executions.

If carried out according to plan, the executions would be the first time Arkansas has put someone to death since 2005.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
