The constitutionality of Washington’s death penalty system of lethal injection was recently challenged in Thurston County Superior Court. The challenge argued that the method of lethal injection was unconstitutional because there was no way to guarantee that the first drug given to the condemned inmate fully renders the prisoner unconscious. Like most other states that use lethal injection, Washington State uses a combination of three drugs to knock out, paralyze, and then kill the inmate. The challenge that is taking place in Thurston County alleges that the system is unconstitutional because it constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. However, the defenders of the system argue that Washington’s system is much like Kentucky’s, which was recently upheld by the United States Supreme Court.
