Please tell DPSCS you oppose the Death Penalty Procedures:

MD Case Action Alert


Maryland's Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services has re-introduced regulations to govern execution by lethal injection, basically the same regulations that expired earlier this year. The redux regulations were published on November 19 in the Maryland Register.

Not one substantive change has been made to these regulations over those proposed in 2009, despite thousands of pages of critique from legal experts and Maryland citizens.

The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (DPSCS) is accepting public comments only until December 20!

Please tell DPSCS you oppose the Death Penalty Procedures:

Randy Watson, Assistant Commissioner
Division of Correction
6776 Reisterstown Road, Suite 310
Baltimore, MD 21215
410 585 3300

Tell Mr. Watson and DPSCS:

·         You oppose resuming executions in our state.

·         You oppose these regulations because they:

o        Ignore all the expert and public comment received by the Department in 2009.

o        Continue using a drug that is outlawed for euthanizing animals in our state.

o        Propose the same combination of drugs that medical experts warn can result in a torturous death – an outcome more likely because medical ethics forbid doctors and nurses with training in anesthesia from administering it during executions.

o        Still require a doctor's participation in violation of the AMA ethical guidelines.

Stay informed at or call 301-779-5230.
