Super Jurist Kagan Has Cast Her First Vote!

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.

    A drug that is not safe to use in an execution, hmmm, words escape me. WTF? Not safe for who? Is that like an electric chair that might shock you? These people slay me.

  2. JeffS says:

    An adequate substitute for sodium thiopental injections would be lead. Copper additives would be optional.

  3. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Well – not safe in the sense that it might not kill him? Personally I think some adequate substitutes would be a rope or a nice sharp sword.

    But I’m a barbarian at heart. 🙂

    Because, yannow, sodium thiopental from one vat is completely different than sodium thiopental from the other. If you have a grasp of chemistry resembling a four year old’s.

    He assumed room temperature that same night. We don’t mess around here. He was only on death row for a scant TWENTY FREAKING YEARS!

    Kagan is a witch ala Macbeth,”double double,toil and trouble”.I’ll be glad when that wicked witch of the East, Ginsberg,goes to live in a Moscow hospice.
    How do these marginally intelligent people get in positions of such importance?
