I’ve noticed that for all of the executions that I’ve read about, the lethal injection is scheduled to occur at precisely 12:01 am on the day for which the execution has been scheduled.
What happens is the person designated to give the injection gets tired of waiting around and gives the injection a few minutes early? Is he an executioner, or is he a murderer??
What if he decided to give the injection at 4:00 in the afternoon, so he wouldn’t miss the game that night? Is he guilty of murder then??
Please explain the exact circumstances necessary in order for a person performing an execution to NOT be considered a murderer.
