    TOLEDO, Ohio - The mother of a condemned inmate whose execution took an hour longer than is typical sued the head of Ohio’s prisons on Monday.
    It took almost 90 minutes to carry out the execution of Joseph Clark in May 2006. The lawsuit, filed in a Cincinnati federal court, said the execution amounted to unconstitutional cruel and unusual punishment. Executions last about 20 minutes on average.

    The purpose of an execution is to...execute someone.
    Legal Manslaughter by the State.
    Did the inmate suffer debilitating injury or damage as a result of the "botched" execution?
    Is execution itself: unconstitutional or the right of the State to dispatch murderous vermin?
    Did anyone bother to ask him?? I wonder what his answer would be?
