SACRAMENTO - Legal and scientific experts are warning that California’s proposed lethal injection protocols were created without the transparency and public participation required by law and that these untested execution procedures will amount to human experimentation, with a grave risk that something will go terribly wrong.

These experts are joined by the voices of nearly 15,000 individiuals who have already weighed in against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s (CDCR) proposal for a new protocol to execute inmates by lethal injection. Their warnings come just days ahead of the CDCR’s January 22 hearing on the proposed regulation and as public support for the death penalty continues to decline nationwide.
