New plan could allow executions to resume in California

Opponents of the death penalty carry signs during a rally opposing the death penalty on January 12, 2005 on the steps of the California State building in San FranciscoCalifornia authorities proposed Friday a new method to execute inmates by lethal injection, potentially allowing the US state to resume capital punishment nearly a decade after legal challenges halted the practice. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) proposed a single-drug approach to executions in response to objections that the standard three-drug protocol was prone to failure, exposing inmates to a potentially agonizing death in violation of the US Constitution. California has by far the largest number of death-row inmates — 747 — of any state, followed by Florida and Texas.
