Botched Execution

What I understand is that there is a rule

that in the formal and legal execution of a convict,

if the said convict still lived on the first attempt to execute him,

he is to be granted full freedom and pardon,

because his next execution for the same crime,

will  be done on his second life.

His first life was the one to be forfeited.

His death by a heart attack may have been alleged.

This would be another good reason for the citizens

to bear arms.
