Supreme Court Upholds Execution Protocol

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS, joined by JUSTICE KENNEDY and JUSTICE ALITO, concluded that Kentucky’s lethal injection protocol satisfies the Eighth Amendment.
Hey Erick Daniel "Truman" Davila, look at what is going to be back on the table at your trial. Hope you ain't afraid of needles.

ScotusBlog has the opinion.

Actually, I have very little to say on this matter other than to say to the death row inmates that are worried about their executions being carried out more humanely, with less risk of pain: Did you consider ANY of that when you committed the murders that landed you ON death row?? Did you consider the pain, suffering or sheer terror felt by your victim?? I seriously doubt it…

I hope it hurts like hell when they inject them with the killer cocktail, I hope it’s the most excruciating pain a body can know, it will help to prepare them for their next destination…
