The late Joseph  Wood, yet another botched execution, this time in Arizona. Time out with the new and bring back the proven technology of the firing squad, from the Washington Post:

The execution of a convicted murderer in Arizona lasted for nearly two hours on Wednesday, as witnesses said he gasped and snorted for much of that time before eventually dying.

This drawn-out death of Joseph R. Wood III in Arizona prompted the governor to order a review and drew renewed criticism of lethal injection, the main method of execution in the United States, just months after a high-profile botched execution in Oklahoma.

It does not take two hours to tie a convict to a post and to shoot him.
