    Amnesty has issued a report stating that the cocktail of drugs used in lethal injections can cause excruciating pain and can also cause paralysis so that the convict can’t scream or in any way show that they are in pain. 

    This pain can be caused because the drug that causes unconsciousness can wear off before the heart stops but the prisoner may remain paralyzed which doesn’t allow him/her to indicate his/her suffering. Amnesty is calling this a ‘chemical straitjacket’.
