    Seriously, just hang them. It's more humane than the drug cocktail. Death is instantaneous, and there is not problem with supplies.

    Death is most definitely not always instantaneous when hanging. And even when making very specific mathematical calculations (length, knot type and placement, etc.) for a "long drop" when you are specifically trying to break the right vertebrae, it can still go wrong and leave the person slowly suffocating to death.

    Thanks, I was pretty sure I'd read some historical accounts of that exact thing happening but wasn't sure about details.

    Yes, it is 97% effective. Only 3% of hangings are botched. Half the botch rate of lethal injection.

    They (the hangees) if they were rich or had family there used to pay someone to pull their legs to end it quickly.
    Horrible and horrifying.
