The Null Device
Killing by the book:
In a few weeks, convicted Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh is due to be
sent off to Redneck Valhalla; to mark the occasion, freedom-of-information
The Smoking Gun
has obtained and
posted online the 54-page "protocol manual" for executing convicted federal
prisoners; written in dry, bureaucratic language on what seems to be a
typewriter, it covers everything from the last meal and disposition of
personal effects to the handling of witnesses and protesters, as well as the
mundane necessities of purchasing lethal chemicals and cleaning up afterwards.
