US Supreme Court ruling guts ban on “cruel and unusual punishment”
2 April 2019
In a decision that sets a new standard for legalistic sophistry in the service of barbarism, the US Supreme Court has approved the execution of a Missouri inmate using methods that are tantamount to torture.
Despite evidence that the death row prisoner, Russell Bucklew, has a rare medical condition involving the formation of tumors in his bloodstream, which renders execution by lethal injection excruciatingly painful, the court issued a 5–4 ruling Monday that the execution should proceed as planned.
The decision was the first in which the replacement of conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy by ultra-conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh clearly paid dividends for the most right-wing factions in Washington. Kennedy was the fifth vote to approve a stay of execution for Bucklew last year in an earlier, unrelated appeal. Kavanaugh supplied the fifth vote to send Bucklew to the death chamber.
SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVORS PROTEST KAVANAUGH HIRING Sexual assault survivors and student activists at George Mason University are protesting the school’s hiring of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a visiting professor.

GRAHAM ‘PROMISES’ KAVANAUGH WON’T BE IMPEACHED Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) “promised” that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh won’t be impeached following the revelation of another sexual misconduct allegation. [HuffPost]
FBI ACCUSED OF ‘FAKE’ KAVANAUGH BACKGROUND CHECK Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said the FBI in 2018 conducted a “politically constrained and perhaps fake” background check on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after women accused the then-nominee of sexual assault. Whitehouse said witnesses couldn’t get through to the bureau and contacted senators for help. [HuffPost]
