Alabama became the third state to allow the execution of prisoners by nitrogen gas Thursday after Republican Gov. Kay Ivey signed legislation permitting the practice as an alternative to lethal injection.

The new law would allow execution by nitrogen hypoxia if lethal injection drugs are unavailable or ruled unconstitutional. Breathing the inert gas causes oxygen depletion in the bloodstream.

According to AL.com, inmates on death row also could choose to be electrocuted, though none have done so since Alabama adopted lethal injection in 2002.

The bill overwhelmingly passed the Alabama House of Representatives on Tuesday after it was approved unanimously by the State Senate last month. Supporters argued the state needs another method of carrying out death sentences as drug companies become hesitant to supply chemicals for executions and lethal injection faces continued court challenges.

“It would simply put him to sleep. It’s humane. It’s quick, and it’s painless,” Republican Rep. Jim Hill of Moody said during debate.

Opponents of the bill questioned how lawmakers could assert it would be painless since the method hasn’t been tried.

“We had Yellow Mama. Now, we are going to bring back the gas chamber,” Rep. Thomas Jackson, a Democrat from Thomasville, said, referencing the nickname for the state’s yellow-painted electric chair.

Last week, Oklahoma officials announced that they would use nitrogen to execute inmates once the state resumes using the death penalty. State Attorney General Mike Hunter said the administration of the gas likely would require the use of a mask placed over the inmate’s head, but he said the mechanical details still have to be worked out.

Oklahoma put executions on hold in 2015 after a series of execution mishaps. In 2014, a botched lethal injection left an inmate writhing on the gurney. The following year, one inmate was executed with an unapproved drug, and a second inmate was just moments away from being led to the death chamber before prison officials realized the same wrong drug had been delivered for his execution.

Since then, several top officials connected to the bungled executions have resigned and the state’s multicounty grand jury delivered a scathing report on Oklahoma’s lethal injection process that accused a number of individuals involved in the process of sloppy and careless work.

The Oklahoma Legislature formally approved the use of nitrogen gas as an execution method in 2015. Mississippi became the second state to approve the method last year.

Four other states allow the use of a gas chamber as an alternative method of execution, including Arizona, California, Missouri and Wyoming, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.

Why not have an Anesthesiologist do the deed in death roll cases.
It could take the guess work out of it.

I'm going to take a wild guess it's due to physicians and nurses taking an oath not to hurt anyone. Just a guess, mind you.

Seriously, a physician, no matter how he felt about capital punishment, would be in danger of losing his medical license if his name was revealed.

Currently in Alabama, paramedics start the IV and wardens start the drip.

Why not let them due by the method they murdered their victims?

The nitrogen is a as close to a perfect murder that is possible.  Seal up the bottoms of any doors, stick a hose under the door and open the valve to a big nitrogen bkttle.  The nitrogen stays on the floor and rises as it is heavier than air.  Eventually the nitrogen gets above the victim's head who is hopefully asleep.  The victim is without oxygen and dies.  Remove the tube piping nitrogen into the room and unreal the doors.  When the room airs out, there is no proof is left behind to why the victim died.

(Are those physicians and nurses that murder children everyday take that
oath not to hurt anyone. I think so, just a guess, mind you)

(Seriously, a person could be trained as an Anesthesiologist for that
reason working for the state without taking the oath, I know
it's complicated.)

Hmmm, let's see what's wrong with that logic...

1. The State executes how many a year? I'd say four is a lot. So you want to keep an anesthesiologist on the payroll who might not even lift a finger in a year's time. Just how much would that payroll be? Looking online, about 250,000.00 per year.

2. Then you'd have the attorneys who would say it was cruel to use an "unlicensed anesthesiologist" to perform the task.

Oh, and tell us more about all those child murders that physicians and nurses do. Looks like they would have made at least one newspaper in the state, but guess not according to you.

Nitrogen in the blood stream, instead of oxygen, would show up during the autopsy.  One would be a true blue blood.

I had a feeling it would be too complicated, I didn't realize it was
totally out of your mental reach. Is there any other misdirection
you might dive into besides common sense.

So basically since you can't explain it, it means you have no concrete idea yourself. Is that for both points or just one?

Shame on you. No need to insult people and call them names for their thoughts and opinions.

All you sanctimonious liberals insult and beat me up everyday
and I should be ashamed, thanks for showing your true colors.

Poor ConspiracyKrow. You pitful snowflake. You insulted me the first day I rejoined the forums and now you wanna cry about being insulted? What part of the 'Golden Rule' is above your understanding? People give you exactly what you dish out and you wanna whine about it. You must live a pitiful existence.

Not to mention all the lies the left tells about posters. That one showed it's true colors long ago.

Left, right, liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican = you don't know what I am. Why do you insult people if they don't agree with you?

I want to make the world a better place. I don't want to be insulted or called names when I voice my opinions. I don't like to see others insulted for their opinions. If that makes me a horrible person = a liberal= then I guess I'm a liberal.

Lets talk about you. I'm fastinated by your attitude. You are an angry bully. They say bullies were bullied themselves. I'm truly sorry you have/had such a horrible life. You sound miserable. I hope your life gets better, it's too short to spend it being so bitter.

Golly, did you just lie? Where were you insulted? No, you don't want to make the world a better place. You want to toss out underhanded insults to the Conservatives posting here  while trying to act like butter wouldn't melt in your mouth.  Did you just lie again? Who have I bullied? I guess calling you on your attempt at bullying is your idea of being bullied. You're the one that needs to get a better life, and while you're at it you need new insult material. The stuff you're using is as old and worn out as you are.
