This is unbelievable. Please just let the family of the victims execute him the same way he killed their loved ones since that obviously isn’t painful to him.
Does anyone else agree?
If the state of Missouri intends to execute a man who raped his ex-girlfriend after killing her new beau in front of four children, it may have to find a method that doesn’t cause Russell Bucklew “unnecessary pain.”
U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency appeals from Missouri, suspended Bucklew’s execution Tuesday night an hour before the convicted killer was to die by lethal injection. Alito’s ruling came after the federal 8th Circuit Court of Appeals found that a rare medical condition suffered by Bucklew means that he will likely experience “unnecessary pain and suffering beyond the constitutionally permissible amount inherent in all executions.”
