Wesley Ira Purkey is all set to meet his maker. The Supreme Court lifted injunctions issued earlier by lower courts and allowed the execution to proceed. Sometimes, however, it’s important to examine the basis that the four liberals on the court use as justification for allowing this animated sewage to cling to life. Justice Sotomayor wrote in dissent that “proceeding with Purkey’s execution now, despite the grave questions and factual findings regarding his mental competency, casts a shroud of constitutional doubt over the most irrevocable of injuries.”
In case you weren’t paying attention, that’s complete BS and Sotomayor likely knows it.
