MISSOURI: A federal judge has just stopped all human executions after findnig out that the doctor in charge of mixing up the lethal injections was dyslexic.
"The court is gravely concerned that a physician who is solely responsible for correctly mixing the drugs ... has a condition which causes him confusion with regard to numbers," the judge writes.
He also doubled the level of one drug which the doctor had been mixing. The deal is that first you get an anaesthetic, then you get one which paralyses you, then potassium chloride, which stops your heart and is fucking painful if you haven't been knocked out. Guess which one the doctor had been dishing out at half-strength levels?
