    Justice Elena Kagan's first vote is against an execution

    Justice Elena Kagan's first vote is against an execution

    Justice Elena Kagan: Kagan's first vote is against an execution - latimes.com


    ASHINGTON ó 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.

    The 5-4 ruling overturned orders by a federal judge in Phoenix and the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco that had stopped the execution by lethal injection of Jeffrey Landrigan.

    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.



    yeah yeah. kagen voting the liberal line, that was expected.


    But read the last line quoted......

    As in could leave him not dead and sufferring terribly for hours while they freak out in the execution room wondering how to kill him when all the drugs are used and everyone watching starts screaming and crying etc etc.

    Trying mighty hard to find something wrong with her voting as expected.

    You two, please read that I didn't expect her to vote any other way, and don't really care. It was just humorus as to why.

    But it is silly to claim she is "voting the liberal line" when she has only voted once. Her record suggest there will be occasions when she may break with the liberals on the court. However, no one has really claimed she is anything other than a liberal. A moderate liberal probably, but still a liberal.

    Well a lot of people in government seem to be worried about Americans buying Canadian drugs.
