    If lethal injection is considered cruel and unusual punishment what's the alternative??

    Injection is cruel and unusual; sucking the brains out of an unborn baby, okey-dokey. :rolleyes:

    Roberts, Scalia, and Thomas dissented. Alito abstained because the case was argued before he entered the court. The liberals carried the day... once again.

    BTW, this highlights how the court is still essentially a liberal court despite the librull assertion that SCOTUS is conservative now.

    I'll give GWB this, he has managed to put some decent constructionists on the court, but we need one more liberal to retire and get replaced with another constructionists in order to return the high court to its Constitutional roots.

    Yes. And to all those who are turning their backs on the Republican party now, just think of what the Court will be like if a Dem President takes office and gets to nominate Justices.

    I'm about damned sick of this. Didin't "we, the people. empower the Republicans because we wanted a change? What change have we gotten? Do teh Republicans need a 99% majority before they stop cowing to the minority Dems who basically wield power by controlling the media. "Say no to a Dem, scandal for you."

    ITA. People who EARN the death penalty don't arouse my sympathy one bit. Hang the bastards. Ropes are cheap and reusable.

    ... and make the hanging a publicized event in the town square, with video/audio feeds to all the schools to educate children that actions do have consequences, and some actions will have deadly consequences.

    It seems to me that in the move to make death a sterile, painless thing, we have lessened the impact it has on potential criminals. Most of those scheduled for the death penalty committed violent crimes. Their penalty should at least approach the crime they committed.
