The U.S. Death Penalty.

Description Of Each Execution Method, And Methods Of Execution As Authorized By Each State.

28 C.F.R. § 26.3 – Date, Time, Place, And Method Of Execution. (deathpenaltyinfo.org/executions/met…)


The U.S. has a long complex history with capital punishment.

Lethal Injection.


Gas Chamber.

Firing Squad.


Authorized Methods Of Execution By State.

(Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics, Capital Punishment 2011, Updat­ed By DPIC.) (deathpenaltyinfo.org/executions/met…)

Alabama – Florida

Georgia – Nevada

New Hampshire – South Dakota

Tennessee – Wyoming

Notice The Two Bottom Entries?

‘U.S. Military’ – ‘Lethal Injection Is The Sole Method.’

‘U.S. Government’ – ‘Lethal Injection Is The Sole Method. (28 C.F.R. § 26.3)’

28 C.F.R. § 26.3 – Date, Time, Place, And Method Of Execution.

If There Are Any Alterations Needed Before The First Executions Commence, That Part Is Probably Already Written, Waiting To Be Signed, And Will Be Implemented As The Trials And Convictions Move Forward.

(To Be Continued.)

On The Morning Of June 7, 1936, Rainey Bethea Robbed, Raped, And Murdered Lischia Edwards, A 70 Year Old White Woman.

Eluding Police For Several Days, Bethea Was Eventually Spotted A Third Time On A River Bank Where He Attempted To Hop A Barge, And Was Arrested.

Bethea Confessed, But Was Only Charged With Rape, Which Allowed For The Convicted To Be Publicly Hanged In The County Where The Crimes Were Committed.

Gov. Albert Benjamin ‘Happy’ Chandler Signed Bethea’s Execution Warrant. The Execution Was Set For Sunrise, August 14., 1936.

The Hanging Drew National Media Attention, Mainly Because The Sheriff Of Daviess County, Kentucky, Was A Woman. Sheriff Florence Shoemaker Thompson Would Be Responsible For Hanging Bethea, But She Did Not Push The Lever To The Gallows’ Trapdoor Herself, That Would Be Done By

…Arthur L. Hash, A Former Louisville Police Officer, With A Slight Alcohol Problem. Hash Had Offered His Services Free Of Charge.

Shortly Before Sunrise, Around 5:20 A.M. On Friday, August 14, 1936, Rainey Bethea Was Led To The Gallows In Owensboro, Kentucky.

An Estimated 15,000 – 20,000 People, Including Thousands From Out Of Town, Showed Up For Bethea’s Hanging.

The Hanging Would Be Arthur L. Hash’s 70th. Bethea Made No Final Statement To The Crowd.

Bethea Stands On The ‘X’ Marked On The Trapdoor, With The Black Hood Over His Head. Officers Do The Final Adjustments, And Tighten The Noose.

At This Point Arthur L. Hash Was Drunk. G. Phil Hanna, A Farmer From Epworth, Illinois, Who Was Supervising, Yells At Hash… “Do It!”

Hash Doesn’t React, And A Deputy Leans Onto The Lever. Bethea Drops 14′, His Neck Snaps Instantly. Bethea Is Pronounced Dead At 5:45 A.M.

Rainy Bethea’s Hanging Would Be The Last Public Execution In The United States.
