I've heard it all now. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito suspended the execution of a convicted rapist and murderer, Russell Bucklew, because he might feel undue pain during the execution. Wow! Never mind that Bucklew tracked down his ex-girlfriend and killed her new boyfriend while she, her kids and his kids watched. Then Bucklew handcuffed the ex and beat her. Then he took her elsewhere and raped her before being caught. If that's not enough, Bucklew then escaped from jail and went to his ex-girlfriend's mother's house and beat her with a hammer. God forbid (yes, I said God) Bucklew feel any pain. I can just imagine how much he will suffer, can't you?
If there is any wonder how or why we have gotten to this point, please use this case as an example. The rape and murder took place more than 18 years ago, and Bucklew is still on death row, where more convicted killers die of natural causes than they do by execution.
