SCOTUS Newest Liberal Votes to Stop Execution Because Execution Drug is Unsafe

You just can't make stuff like this up. President Obama's latest Supreme Court appointment, Elena Kagan, votes in dissent with liberals to stop an execution because the drugs used may be unsafe. Hmm... She must be afraid the drugs could actually kill the criminal being executed. Unbelievable.

The LA Times reported:
Washington…Justice Elena Kagan cast her first recorded 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.

A judge had put the execution on hold because she said she was "left to speculate" whether this drug was safe for its intended use.

Go figure-- it didn't take long at all to "reap what we have sown" by those voting in Obama, who sent us this judicial MISCREANT
