Washington Death Row

Cop Killer: Not Trained to Kill Me

I hope the Supreme Court do not fall into this non-sense. I mean, how this guy and others even dare to speak about the method being too "cruel", they KILLED someone for heaven's sake and certainly did not ask the victims if the method they used was "cruel". rolleyes

WASHINGTON — At 8:23 p.m. Local time on Sept. 25, 2007, Michael Richard was pronounced dead inside the execution chamber at the Texas State Penitentiary in Huntsville. The United States hasn't held an execution since.

Just a few days after Richard's death, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would hear a challenge to the way executions like Richard's are carried out. That case will be heard Monday.

The hearing will weigh whether the nearly universal three-chemical mix used to execute condemned prisoners is constitutional. The court's decision could determine whether a de facto moratorium on the death penalty continues.

Since the court announced it would take the case, it has intervened several times to grant last-minute stays. States across the country have followed suit.

Monday's arguments in front of the high court is the most significant death penalty case in years. The issue presented does not address the constitutionality of the death penalty itself, but rather the method by which nearly all executions in the U.S. Are currently performed.

The case, Baze v. Rees, comes out of Kentucky, which is one of 36 states that provides for capital punishment as its most severe criminal sentence. New Jersey's governor last month signed legislation prohibiting the death penalty, and the state has since cleared its death row, returning prisoners to general lock-up.
