Gorsuch's 1st vote - Approve State Killings

Belorussian partisan fighters executed by Nazi troops

Stop State Sponsored Murder
All governments will kill to protect themselves 
or to look good in the public's eye.

  • I have done a 180 on the death penalty.  Look at the scumbag political Attorney General hacks like Janet Reno, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. No way in Hell will I give these creeps the power to legally kill in the name of the State.
  • At the local level we saw the District Attorney in the Duke lacrosse case disbarred for fraud and dishonesty in order to get ahead in politics.
  • I am disappointed to see "Conservatives" support state killings.

(New York Times)  -  It’s not entirely fair to judge a Supreme Court justice based on his first vote. Urgent matters arise unexpectedly, and the court must sometimes act quickly.

Still, it’s worth paying special attention to Justice Neil Gorsuch’s vote late Thursday night to deny a stay of execution for Ledell Lee, an Arkansas man who was sentenced to death in 1995 for murdering a woman named Debra Reese with a tire thumper.

After Justice Gorsuch, along with the four other conservative justices, denied his final appeal without explanation, Mr. Lee, who maintained his innocence until the end, was executed by lethal injection.

He was pronounced dead at 11:56 p.m. Central Daylight Time, minutes before his death warrant expired. Arkansas had not executed anyone since 2005.

In short, the first significant decision by Justice Gorsuch, who was sworn in to office less than two weeks ago, was the most consequential any justice can make — to approve a man’s killing by the state.
