image for Bush - Death by Lethal Injection is Inhumane
Bush - 'None of us like needles'

President Bush told the nation tonight that execution of criminals by means of lethal injection will cease.

The President is believed to have taken this step following a number of recent reports suggesting that death by lethal injection is not as painless as previously thought.

Professor Cy Podermic of the National Association for Prison Reform said, 'We undertook a comprehensive study of criminals executed by lethal injection over the last 10 years. Our findings indicate that over 8 out of 10 criminals said 'Ouch!' or 'Eeoow!' when the needle was inserted.

President Bush is now believed to be considering alternative methods of execution. It is thought that death by 'friendly fire' is likely to be adopted.
