Hmmmmm... I could think of a million questions like this.... For example why does a person get executed for killing 4 people but a person who sets fire to a cabin full of people "accidentally" goes free with only 2-5 years in prison.?

I didn't know they did, but maybe because in case the person doing the injection slipped and stuck themselves with the needle they would want it sterilized. Otherwise, I'm not sure why it would matter.

I never really thought of it...it really shouldn't matter..what they should do is give them any old needle they find and use that for the injection...

Really? Just heared that. Maybe they do that just to prolong the procedure of lethal injection.
