Re "Capital punishment is too broken to fix" (Editorials, May 2): As I read another story-editorial regarding the "botched" lethal injection in Oklahoma, it appears to me there is a solution. The botched lethal injection in the last case in Oklahoma seemed appropriate since that man caused tremendous pain and suffering to his vicitums.
Veterinary medicine has had the answer for a long time. Knowing that when it was time to let a beloved animal go the vet would take care of Humainly injecting our animal to a gentle permanent sleep. Whatever cocktail of drugs used in veterinary medicine appears always available.
Perhaps the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation should contact a local vet clinic to find out the drugs being used for animal euthanasia. With 745 waiting their turn, this method could be employed to save California millions.
