Guardian reporter Jacob Rosenberg was one of the witnesses to the execution of Marcel Williams, who was the second man put to death by the state of Arkansas last night. His report is chilling.
He describes Williams lying on a gurney with his head “locked in place,” lying on his side, facing the witnesses. It isn’t easy to read, and you will feel slightly sick inside knowing that this is being done in the United States in 2017. It is barbaric, it is inhumane, and most of all, it is unjustifiable.
