Is This Who We Are?
Arkansas's stash of lethal injection drugs (specifically Midazolam, the drug behind several botched executions in past years) is expiring soon.
That's the stated reason for the planned executions of 8 death row inmates in just 4 days this month.
Arkansas hasn't executed anyone in more than 11 years.
Several judges have put a halt to parts of the plan, but the first two executions are scheduled to proceed tonight.
