Supreme Court: the needle ride to hell is not cruel and unusual punishment

Go to hell, go directly to hell, do not pass go, do not collect $200:

In a case closely watched in Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the use of lethal injection for executing convicted killers in Kentucky.

The 7-2 decision clears the way for 36 states, including Texas, to resume lethal injections. Those executions had been delayed for more than six months since the high court first agreed to hear the case. The case splintered the Supreme Court into five factions and no single opinion garnered a majority.

As y'all might remember, I have zero sympathy for people on death row suffering while poison is pumping through their veins.

So, when's Huntsville going to start catching up?
