Supreme Court Halts Execution Of Missouri Inmate

As they report at Talking Points Memo:

"BONNE TERRE, Mo. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday halted the execution of a Missouri inmate with a rare medical condition who challenged the state's refusal to disclose the source of its lethal injection drug.
The justices said a lower federal court needs to take another look at the case of Russell Bucklew, whose execution would have been the nation's first since last month's botched execution in Oklahoma..."

Gee, that's a change from the Supreme Court's usual tactic of just letting them die.  I wonder what could be different about this guy?
 Wait a minute- I'll figure it out any second now.

I don't care about him either, but I do care that as a nation we are either better than him or equal to him in the way we dole out his punishment. Either we are an example of humane, calm, and firm resolve dealing with the most vile and dangerous among us, or we appear as savage brutes killing them in a way that displays more fear and hate than confidence in our culture.
