New federal rule to allow other methods of execution besides lethal injection

“As lethal injection drugs become difficult to obtain, some states have begun looking at alternative methods for carrying out death sentences.”

The Justice Department is changing its execution protocols, so that federal executions are no longer required to be done by lethal injection only.

The amended rule, as reported by the AP, allows the government to use lethal injection or “any other manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the sentence was imposed.” The rule was published in the Federal Register on Friday.

Those other manners include “electrocution, inhaling nitrogen gas or death by firing squad.” The amended rule goes into effect on Dec. 24 and comes as the DOJ has scheduled five executions during this lame-duck period.

The reason for the change, according to a Justice Department official, is “the Federal Death Penalty Act requires sentences be carried out in the ‘in the manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the sentence is imposed,’ and some of those states use methods other than lethal injection.”
