Death row inmate sues for fake execution

MOBILE, Alabama –

His lawyers are calling him “the sole survivor of an execution in the United States.” Death row inmate Alan Miller – executed September 22 for killing three people in a workplace shooting in 1999.

Time was running out – Miller’s execution by lethal injection was adjourned at 11:30 p.m. after Holman Prison officials could not find his way into his vein – but no for lack of effort.

In a newly filed lawsuit – Miller says he was provoked and motivated for 90 minutes in what was described as a “tricked” execution.

In the lawsuit – Miller’s attorney claims, medical professionals have always had difficulty accessing Miller’s veins – which is why he chose nitrous oxide death – a method which the state said could initially be used, but last Thursday – Alabama Regulatory Commissioner Jon Hamm said it was unable to carry out an execution because of nitrogen deficiency – and was prepared to using lethal injection. The US Supreme Court finally cleared the way for the execution.

In his lawsuit – Miller says he was tortured when staff at Holman Prison repeatedly tried to find a way to access his veins – first in his arm, then is his hand. It went on to say that they eventually even tried his right leg – saying that when they put the needle in, it felt like “he was electrocuted, and his whole body shook in the barricade” – believe they have stabbed the nerve.

Finally back in his arms – before the unidentified men began “slapping the skin on his neck… Mr. Miller jerked in shock from intense fear of the men trying to try to put a needle in my neck.”

The state’s request for a different date of execution – having Miller’s attorney ask the judge to prohibit the State from executing him by any means other than – hypoxic nitrogen. Miller’s attorney, on the other hand, stated that the state was completely free to stab Miller with a needle as many times as it could before the clock struck midnight.

Meanwhile, the State has until October 11 to respond – why Miller’s petition shouldn’t be approved.

Now pending before the Court is Plaintiff Alan Miller’s Request for Leave to File a Second Amendment Complaint. After reviewing the petition, the State must respond in writing why Plaintiff’s petition should not be accepted.
