The U.S. Supreme Court had been examining Kentucky's lethal injection procedures and ruled today that the most widely approved method of lethal injection passes the test. Almost immediately Virginia, Mississippi and Oklahoma moved to lift their moratoriums which had been in place pending the decision.
Only Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David Souter dissented from the majority. What a surprise!
Evidently, in Florida and Ohio some of these lethal injections took abnormally long to conclude, and there were "indications" that the prisoner suffered.
Who weeps for those prisoners... the killers of innocent men, women and children? Am I to be outraged when a serial molester and killer of children happens to get a burning sensation from the three-drug method extinguishing his filthy existence. You know, I don't really give a damn if being executed hurts a little. If you ask me, it ought to hurt a lot!
They should be glad I am not charged with developing methods of execution, and they get a fluffy pillow while they are put to sleep. I would run most of these demons through a stump-grinder.
So, capital punishment continues... let the executions resume!
