00:03:03,468 --> 00:03:05,402
[ Fred Leuchter,Jr.]
I became involved...

2
00:03:05,470 --> 00:03:07,904
in the manufacture
of execution equipment...

3
00:03:07,972 --> 00:03:11,271
because I was concerned
with the deplorable condition...

4
00:03:11,342 --> 00:03:16,143
of the hardware that's in
most of the states'prisons,

5
00:03:16,214 --> 00:03:19,149
which generally results
in torture...

6
00:03:19,217 --> 00:03:21,151
prior to death.

7
00:03:24,856 --> 00:03:28,656
A number of years ago
I was asked by a state...

8
00:03:28,726 --> 00:03:31,058
to look at
their electric chair.

9
00:03:32,430 --> 00:03:35,922
I was surprised
at the condition
of the equipment...

10
00:03:36,000 --> 00:03:40,027
and I indicated to them
what changes should be made...

11
00:03:40,104 --> 00:03:44,700
to bring the equipment
up to the point of doing
a humane execution.

12
00:03:51,549 --> 00:03:54,712
Beyond making
recommendations for changes,

13
00:03:54,785 --> 00:03:58,050
I sat down, on my own time
and at my own expense,

14
00:03:58,122 --> 00:04:01,785
and made a new design
and new equipment...

15
00:04:01,859 --> 00:04:03,793
available to the states...

16
00:04:03,861 --> 00:04:06,193
utilizing electrocution...

17
00:04:06,264 --> 00:04:10,064
at a price far lower than
they would have to deal with...

18
00:04:10,134 --> 00:04:15,162
if they hired
an engineering firm
to redesign a specific item.

19
00:04:15,239 --> 00:04:17,833
The equipment
is all standardized,

20
00:04:17,909 --> 00:04:22,437
it all meets the current
electrical requirements
for electrocution...

21
00:04:22,513 --> 00:04:24,447
and the pricing is such...

22
00:04:24,515 --> 00:04:27,951
that it's similar
to what you'd pay for
an off-the-shelf item,

23
00:04:28,019 --> 00:04:29,953
even though it's made up.

24
00:04:30,021 --> 00:04:34,287
They essentially pay
for the parts, the labor
and the installation,

25
00:04:34,358 --> 00:04:37,987
and a 20-percent markup,
which is more than fair.

26
00:04:43,701 --> 00:04:45,794
We are testing
the electrocution system...

27
00:04:45,870 --> 00:04:48,896
here at
the Tennessee State Prison.

28
00:04:48,973 --> 00:04:52,340
This is connected to
the execution system...

29
00:04:52,410 --> 00:04:54,435
in place of
the electric chair,

30
00:04:54,512 --> 00:04:57,948
and the system thinks
that this is a human body.

31
00:04:58,015 --> 00:05:01,348
It consists of a series
of heavy-duty resistors...

32
00:05:01,419 --> 00:05:03,410
cooled by four fans.

33
00:05:03,487 --> 00:05:06,820
I will now switch on
the fans...

34
00:05:06,891 --> 00:05:09,826
[ Click, Fans Humming ]
and begin
the cooling process.

35
00:05:17,068 --> 00:05:20,504
We then proceed
to the power supply.

36
00:05:22,473 --> 00:05:25,670
We turn on
the main circuit breaker.

37
00:05:25,743 --> 00:05:31,579
You can see the voltage has
increased to 2,640 volts.

38
00:05:31,649 --> 00:05:35,085
We begin the test
at the control console...

39
00:05:35,152 --> 00:05:37,086
for the electric chair.

40
00:05:37,154 --> 00:05:40,419
We turn the fail-safe system on
to operation.

41
00:05:43,094 --> 00:05:46,530
Power up.
Computer on.

42
00:05:49,066 --> 00:05:51,762
And then I push t
