Supreme Court upholds use of lethal injections
"The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the most common method of lethal injection executions, likely clearing the way to resume executions that have been on hold for nearly 7 months.
The justices, by a 7-2 vote, turned back a constitutional challenge to the procedures in place in Kentucky, which uses three drugs to sedate, paralyze and kill inmates. Similar methods are used by roughly three dozen states, including California."
The two dissents don't surprise me (Ginsburg, Souter). But the 7 Justice majority seems a tad higher than I thought it'd be. Any thoughts?
