COUNCIL OF EUROPE CONDEMNS 'CRUEL' EXECUTION OF OHIO KILLER, CALLS FOR PROTEST

January 17, 2014: The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe expressed outrage at the "cruel and inhuman" execution of a convicted killer in Ohio with an untested drug that lasted an unusually long time, calling on Americans to protest against "such atrocities."
Denis McGuire, 53, spent the last 15 minutes of his life gasping for breath on Thursday while being executed with an "experimental" drug cocktail. The execution that lasted 25 minutes from the lethal ejection to the pronouncement of his death has been described as one of the longest since Ohio resumed capital punishment in 1999.
Marina Schuster (Germany), General Rapporteur on the abolition of the death penalty for the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), expressed her outrage calling the people to protest against the use of "inhumane" punishment. "For a quarter of an hour, Mr McGuire suffered horribly, in front of his wife and children, from pain and panic caused by drug-induced breathing distress," Schuster said, according to the PACE website. "No execution method is ever humane, but this terribly botched state killing shows, for all to see, what a cruel and inhuman punishment the death penalty is. This punishment has no place in a civilized society. I call on the American people to protest against such atrocities being committed in their name."
Family members of the death row inmate called the execution unconstitutional and planned a Friday news conference to announce a lawsuit over McGuire's death.
McGuire was put to death by intravenous doses of two drugs, the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromorphone. The method was adopted after supplies of a previously used drug dried up because the manufacturer refused to make them available for the purpose of capital punishment. (Source: rt.com, 17/01/2014)
