Arkansas Set To Execute 8 Inmates In 4 Days

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson has set execution dates for eight death row inmates, even though the state lacks one of three drugs needed to put the men to death.

According to copies of proclamations given to the secretary of state’s office Monday, the state will conduct the executions in pairs on four days between April 17 and April 27.

However, it remains unclear if the Department of Corrections is capable of conducting executions, as one of the three drugs in Arkansas’ current protocol expired last month.

A prisons spokesman said Monday the state’s supply of potassium chloride has not changed since it expired last month. He also said he was not aware of any efforts to find another batch.

Arkansas hasn’t executed an inmate since 2005.

    “the state lacks one of three drugs needed to put the men to death.” Go down to Home Depot and buy a length of rope. It’s reusable with no expiration date. I see 4 black guys and 4 white guys. Pair them up, one white, one black. Stand them back to back and hang them simultaneously so there are no allegations of bigotry.
