Inmate is executed amid 'cowardly shroud of secrecy' surrounding drug source, editorial says

Inmate is executed amid 'cowardly shroud of secrecy' surrounding drug source, editorial says.  The death penalty is barbaric.  Why not life in prison?  Many of the chemicals used in lethal injection executions cause the person executed to die in a painful way.  It is cruel and unusual punishment, which is forbidden under the 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution.  I'm sure SCOTUS will hear a case about this again soon, especially considering the Ohio debacle the other week.
