Petition to reveal the contents of the Alabama Execution Protocol sign now

As revealed during a poll, the majority of the citizens of Alabama are concerned that an innocent person might be executed by our State, that DNA testing should be mandatory and that the current death penalty mechanism in the State of Alabama is flawed.

Therefor we, the citizens of Alabama, joined by persons worldwide, petition our Governor, Bob Riley, to reveal to us the contents of the Execution Protocol used by the State, in the execution of death penalty offenders, to enable us to ascertain for ourselves whether it is acceptable and does not contravene the stipulations of the 8th Amendment of the US Constitution against cruel and unusual punishment.

We specifically ask that Governor Riley reveals to us the following information:

1. A detailed list of all equipment and supplies used in the lethal injection process.

2. Specifications and maintenance procedures for all equipment and supplies.

3. Specifications on the set-up of the intravenous bag of fluids, drip chambers,flow regulators, IV tubing and injection port.

4. Specifications, plans and procedures used when intravenous access cannot be obtained through an arm or a leg.

5. The physical design, layout and dimensions (including any blueprints or diagrams) of the execution chamber and surrounding areas used in the lethal injection process.

6. Specifications and maintenance procedures for how the drugs used in the lethal injection process are acquired, stored, maintained, along with an examination of their shelf life and expiration dates, and how they are prepared for administration.

7. An exhaustive and detailed list setting forth the qualifications, certifications, training, experience and background of all people who participate in any way in the preparation and carrying out of the lethal injection process.

8. A detailed and descriptive list of the new changes to the protocol, taking into account and revealing any research done that indicates such changes satisfying the provisions of the 8th Amendment, as being structured in such a way as to ensure that the provisions of the 8th Amendment have been met and which will ensure that a person will not suffer pain and agony after such changes have been instituted.

9. The procedure that is intended to be followed to resuscitate a condemned person, once the first and/or second and/or third chemical injections have been delivered, should a stay be ordered. This to include the qualifications, certifications, training, experience and background of all people who would then participate in such resuscitation, as well as the equipment to be used during such resuscitation, in which way it will be used and for how long it will be used before resuscitation will be abandoned as not being viable.

10. The procedure that is intended to be followed to ensure that there is continuous testing whether a condemned person is fully sedated throughout the procedure, what method and equipment would be used to determine this, in which way would it be used, for how long will it be used and at which point will it stop being used. This to include the qualifications, certifications, training, experience and background of all people who would then participate in such testing.

11. The procedure that is intended to be followed should the first drug, which is intended to sedate the condemned person, suddenly wears off, without a person designated to test for sedation, noticing, whilst the person(s) doing such testing, after having ascertained him/herself that the condemned person is sedated, signals for the successive drugs to be administered.

We believe that we can draw upon our Governor's undertaking of transparency, as advised during his election campaign of 2006.
