Mother sues over son's execution

Apparently this guy had been a long time drug user. That made it hard for the execution team to find a good spot to put the needle. It took them 86 minutes and 19 sticks for them to find a place. Now his mother is suing for her son's suffering and humiliation because of how long and how many times they had to stick him. He asked if there was any other way they could execute him. I don't know what to really think of this. I mean, for one thing, it was his use of drugs that made it hard for them to find a place to put the needle. Wouldn't that be his fault for that? I know that I've never done those drugs before and it usually takes doctors and nurses a long time to find a place to put a needle. I've even had at one time 20 different sticks. I never even thought of suing the hospital because of that though. What do you think of this whole thing?

I think the word humane is a joke.As long as people keep killing eachother,calling it justice or not, we are lost as a civilization, and this poor man is proof positive.

The first question is what did he do to deserve to die? I firmly believe that people like him have no rights. If it took that many sticks to kill him, he deserved it. He obviously did something horrendous to get there in the first place. I think student doctors and nurses should be used in times like this. The more painful, the better. I have no apathy for people like him.
