Video: Execution Tour of NC Death Row

A 2007 death penalty documentary short film by Scott Langley with an in-depth tour of North Carolina execution facilities in Raleigh and final hour preparations before an execution.

It is interesting to note that like in the Utah firing range, one of the three executioners on hand that deliver the lethal chemicals is unknowingly given a harmless chemical dosage to deliver.  The state has recognized that, like the blank conscience round in Utah, this diffuses the responsibility of the death amongst the executioners; for their mental well-being as they participate in this medically declared “homicide.”
