Signs of the capital times

Stories about the death penalty do not take time off for holidays.  For example, as well detailed by ODPI and Capital Defense Weekly, this week, there has been a new ruling on lethal injection from the Kentucky Supreme Court and new coverage concerning the execution of defendants who are mentally ill. 

Jurist here has collected a lot of information about the Kentucky Supreme Court's unanimous decision Wednesday that the state's use of a three-drug lethal injection protocol does not violate the constitution because the prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment "does not require a complete absence of pain."
