U.S. Court Reviews Lethal Injection
The U.S. Supreme Court is going to review the legality of lethal injections, the means of execution in most U.S. states. Lethal injection is used in all the 38 states that have capital punishment except Nebraska, which requires electrocution.The high court has agreed to hear challenges from two death row inmates, Ralph Baze and Thomas Clyde Bowling, Jr. They sued the state of Kentucky in 2004, saying lethal injections are cruel and a violation of civil rights. I say, what civil rights. Murders should have no civil rights. What about their victims rights? They weren't worried about them.
