It’s 2018. We can talk to tiny handheld devices in our pockets, and not only do they understand us, but they often correct us. These devices then send a signal to outer space (or low-earth orbit, whatever you believe), retrieve an response, and give us the answer.
We can safely fly in airplanes, doctors can perform certain surgeries robotically, and some of our refrigerators are able to tell us when it’s time to buy more milk.
…But ending a man’s life? That’s really hard to do, apparently.
According to this CNN article, a man on death row in an Alabama prison, went in to the death chamber last Thursday, expecting to die from a lethal injection. Unfortunately for everyone involved, it didn’t work. That’s right – they tried to kill someone, and failed. I guess the firing squad is too cruel and unusual…
Amazingly, this is an actual quote that came from the article:
“Corrections officials, however, denied any “problem” with the procedure, saying they halted it when they ran out of time to complete the protocol before a midnight deadline.”
…Okay, let me get this straight: A man is sent in to die from lethal injection, lives through the injection and is tortured by pain, the staff give up after a couple of hours, the man survives, and they DENY THERE’S A PROBLEM?!
What in the world? Just to confirm this insanity, here’s a quote from Jeff Dunn, commissioner of the Corrections Department:
“I wouldn’t necessarily characterize what we had tonight as a problem. The only indication I have is that in their medical judgment it was more of a time issue, given the late hour.”
How does that make any fucking sense?! I find it hard to believe this is a real news story. It’s too ridiculous. What the fuck is going on here?
The victim of this botched procedure has intriguing gematria:
“Alabama’s aborted execution was ‘botched and bloody,’ lawyer says” = 202 (Full Reduction)
“Alabama’s aborted execution was ‘botched and bloody,’ lawyer says” = 587 (ALW Kabbalah)
587 is the 107th prime number
“Botched and bloody” = 76 (Reverse Full Reduction)
