In his descent, Justice Breyer decried the rush to execute Mr Lee and his fellow death row inmates.
Apparently the reason the State decided to proceed with these eight executions is that the ‘use by’ date of the State’s execution drug is about to expire,” Mr Breyer wrote. “In my view, that factor, when considered as a determining factor separating those who live from those who die, is close to random.”
The majority did not offer reasoning for their ruling.

Geez, that's some professional and ethical behavior there from judges. I have no clue how you manage to let this sort of s*** fly in THE MOST SUPREME court of your country.

My issue is that they use expensive methods of execution instead of proven cheaper methods.
Firing Squad, Hanging, Snapping of necks.

All far cheaper, quicker, more humane methods then gas chamber, electrocution, lethal injection

This is less an argument against the death penalty and more of an argument against how it is implemented and the difficulty of challenging convictions based on conflict of interest.

No it's most definitely an argument against the death penalty because s*** like this can happen at any time. You can't completely prevent it.

How many people convicted as spree killers have been wrongly convicted? Especially ones who confessed?

The same goes for serial killers, terrorists (I should have clarified in the other topic, but I mean persons who commit terrorist acts like the Boston Bombing), etc.

the high court cleared the state to execute Ledell Lee, one of eight convicted murderers that Arkansas has been trying to put to death before one of its lethal-injection drugs expires at the end of the month.

Okay so there's a rush to execute them because the drug will expire because the inmates have been on death row for so long.

I don't mind opponents to the death penalty, but it was partially their actions with their long drawn-out appeals which lead to this predicament.

The trial judge was sleeping with the prosecutor and crucial DNa evidence was not tested. With an appeal lawyer who kept showing up drunk if you know the history of the case.


warrants an appeal?
ours is not to reason why, ours is but to do and die.

Why is he the "deciding" vote when any of the other 4 in the majority could have voted the other way as well?

This vote was pretty much straight along party lines.

There's nothing special or deciding about this vote.

Hurried the execution by killing him 24 years after he committed the murder? How long does it take when they aren't hurrying?

Because we already knew how the other people were going to rule from prior Supreme Court precedent, and since Gorsuch is the guy who's not supposed to be there in the first place he should at least not be making a****** rulings.
