    Top court clears way for executions to resume

    [size=13pt]Top court clears way for executions to resume[/size]

    By James Vicini

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a challenge to the lethal three-drug cocktail used in most U.S. executions, clearing the way for a resumption of capital punishment halted since last September.

    By a 7-2 vote, the high court ruled against two Kentucky death row inmates who argued the current lethal injection method violated the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment by inflicting needless pain and suffering.

    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    Well before this gets locked...........
    Let me say I find the ruling disappointing.
    Yeap I live in Texas and I am against the death penalty.
    Needless to say here I am in the minority with this view.

    I for one believe in the death sentence if you can prove without a doubt that the convicted guy/gal did it.

    DNA evidence is a key piece to that as well as eye witnesses.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
