Execution | America Has Stopped Being a Civilized Nation - The New York Times
Another problem with this execution is Tennessee’s new protocol for lethal injection. The first drug administered in an execution is supposed to put the inmate to sleep so he can’t feel the effects of the other two drugs: the one that causes paralysis and the one that stops the heart. But midazolam, the sedative in Tennessee’s execution cocktail, doesn’t always render complete unconsciousness. It’s possible for the inmate to feel the effects of the next two drugs, and what he feels is akin to being suffocated and burned alive at the same time.

The United States Supreme Court had declined to delay the execution, but Justice Sonia Sotomayor strongly dissented: “In refusing to grant Irick a stay, the court today turns a blind eye to a proven likelihood that the state of Tennessee is on the verge of inflicting several minutes of torturous pain on an inmate in its custody,” Justice Sotomayor wrote. “If the law permits this execution to go forward in spite of the horrific final minutes that Irick may well experience, then we have stopped being a civilized nation and accepted barbarism.”

Trial by Combat? Trial by Cake! | JSTOR Daily
In 1817, a strange case shook London. A man accused of murder demanded a trial by combat, and his demand was granted. The public was shocked. No one had claimed the right to trial by combat in England since 1638. Surely there was no way that such a thing could happen in this day and age. The court, however, begged to differ. Trial by combat had never been taken off the books of English law, and as a result, the accused killer, Abraham Thornton, was perfectly within his rights to try his case on the battlefield.

Thornton followed the proper medieval form as he issued his challenge, casting a leather gauntlet at the feet of his accuser, William Ashford, the murdered woman’s brother. He was ready to assert his innocence with clubs and fists on the body of the scrawny youth. William refused the challenge. He was small and physically weak; fighting Thornton would have been suicide. With no one to stand against him, Thornton walked free. It was a shocking case: a brutal man liberated by his own brutishness, escaping punishment for one murder by threatening to commit another.
