Eyewitness to a killing

December 14, 2005 : California
Steve Lopez: Points West
A Barbaric End to a Barbaric Life

This is in today's LA Times.

In an odd way, the most disturbing thing about watching a man die by lethal injection is how discreetly death creeps into the room.

No sudden jolt, no snapping of the neck at the end of a rope, no severed head.

The inmate gets a shot, he closes his eyes, he sleeps.
