SCOTUS Denies Stay to Worthington

| 0 Comments
The US Supreme Court has denied stays of execution for Missouri murderer Michael Worthington.  In one case he was seeking review of the Missouri Supreme Court decision.  In the other, he asked for a stay pending a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.   Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan dissented from the denial of stay in the latter case.

Update:  Missourinet reports, "5 grams of pentobarbital were administered at 12:01 a.m.  He appeared to quit talking to his family by 12:02 and appeared to quit breathing at 12:03.  The Department of Corrections places the time of death at 12:11."

That's how it's done.  Pentobarbital is quick, effective, and painless.  Congress should outlaw the manufacturer's restrictions on resale as a restraint of trade.
