She voted for granting a stay of execution…because one of the drugs being used might not be safe
WASHINGTON — Justice Elena Kagan cast her first vote on the Supreme Court late Tuesday, joining the liberals in dissent when the high court cleared the way for the execution of an Arizona murderer.
…His lawyers, in a last-ditch appeal, had raised questions about one of the drugs used in the execution. Since the only U.S. manufacturer of sodium thiopental had suspended production, Arizona officials said they had obtained a supply of the drug from a British company.
The judge in Phoenix put the execution on hold because she said she was “left to speculate” whether this drug was safe for its intended use.
You just can’t make this shit up.
You really can’t.
