    Supreme Court orders Oklahoma to halt executions

    well done the Supreme Court



    Supreme Court orders Oklahoma to halt executions over lethal injection drug

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the executions of three Oklahoma men due to concerns about the controversial drug cocktail the state uses for lethal injections.


    The move was widely expected after the Justices agreed last week to hear the inmates' legal challenge that the drug, midazolam, causes intense suffering and thus violates the constitutional protection against cruel and unusual punishment. Lawyers for the petitioners pointed to Oklahoma's botched execution last year of Clayton Lockett as proof the drug should not be administered.


    Though the state initially opposed staying the executions, it changed course on Monday and asked the high court to intervene. Jon Terbush

    The Supreme Court has no authority to do this.

    So fuck the Supreme Court.

    Lawmaking is the purview of congress, not the Supreme Court.
    She cries, children often do
    When they're cold, and hungry too,
    Come closer, look deeply in her eyes
    So delicate, quite unlike her smile

    Life clinging backwards,
    In the fall of dread confusion,
    Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,
    All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation,
    Far more sinister than the price of doubt,

    Yet you remain,
    Still you remain,

    And she says:
    Pray for daylight,
    Pray for morning,
    Pray for an end to our deception,

    How about a little beheading?

    No constitutional basis for the order.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.
