MISSOURI EXECUTIONS STARTING AGAIN!!!
The State Of Missouri prepares to start killing in the name of "justice" once again . . .
Missouri Supreme Court sets execution dates for two death row inmates
Apparently, Michael Jackson's demise and legal wrangling over the drug that sent the King Of Pop to the great beyond isn't enough to save convicts.
"A group of death row inmates in Missouri have argued in lawsuits that the drug, which was blamed for the 2009 death of pop star Michael Jackson, causes pain and is cruel and unusual punishment. Missouri revised its execution protocol in 2012 to include the drug but has not held an execution since.
The state Supreme Court set an October 23 date for the execution of Allen Nicklasson and a November 20 date for the execution of Joseph Franklin, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said on Wednesday."
Sadly, state sponsored killing never serves to reduce crime, doesn't prove to be much of a deterrent and actually costs taxpayers more than prison . . . Nevertheless, executions make blood-thirsty mobs happy in pursuit of "justice" that's often flawed and rife with inequity.
