End The Death Penalty In the news

Execution of Alan Miller abandoned by Alabama officials after failing to find a vein for lethal injection

Vice News reports on the botched execution of Alan Miller in Alabama, the latest in series of similar events in the US state.

“Officials knew it was likely they would subject Alan Miller to the very same long and agonizing procedure as Joe Nathan James and Doyle Lee Hamm and yet they ploughed ahead anyway—adding to the state’s horrific history of botched executions,” Reprieve US said in a statement.
