If At First You Don't Succeed

Would this be considered cruel and unusual?

A convicted child rapist and murderer in my old home state of Ohio is fighting to not be executed for the second time. His first execution failed when executioners gave up when after 2 hours and 18 pokes of the lethal injection needle, they were unable to find a usable vein.

    I might sympathize: the guy's ready to die, they spend two hours trying to kill him, he even helps them look for a vein, an they can't get the job done. If I were a religious man, I might suggest that the Lord just sent the reprieve. Lock him up, throw away the key, feed him 'til he dies.
