ABSTRACT
The author comments on issues related to the use of three-drug lethal injection in executing capital punishment in the U.S. He argues that specific chemicals used in lethal injection and procedures in executing capital punishment are inconsistent with the principles of the Eight Amendment's proscription of cruel and unusual punishment. He provides a background on the history of capital punishment in the country. He also offers information on the chemical combination used by different states in executing death penalty.
