Judge James Burge of Ohio has ruled that the state’s method of executing prisoners violates the Constitution because two of the three drugs used cause pain to the person getting them. I am no judge but the Constitution does not say that punishment should be pain free. It only says that it may not be cruel and unusual.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. [emphasis mine]
Under this judge’s interpretation we would not be allowed to make criminals in jail do any strenuous work (like being on the chain gang) because they will have sore muscles when they are done and God forbid we cause them any pain. As far as someone being put to death, what does it matter? They have a few seconds of pain and they drift off to la la land and never wake up. I am pretty sure that for most of the murderers on death row, this is a hell of a lot more humane then how they took the lives of their victims.
We have established that the Constitution does not protect against pain, only against inflicting cruel and unusual punishment. Once pain is out of the equation we have the injection of drugs. We give needles every day and we inject medications every day. The people to whom we do this have not been convicted of anything so they are not being punished. No, we do this because it is the common way of giving certain kinds of medication and of starting IVs and drawing blood. Therefore, it is neither cruel nor is it unusual.
Judge Burge has this entirely wrong but being wrong about the Constitution should not surprise anyone when one views the picture of the judge. The judge looks like Satan without the horns and the wall behind him has a picture of Ernesto “Che” Guevara an Argentine Marxist revolutionary who was a brutal killer and who has become the icon for leftist movements. On the wall next to Che is a picture of Barack Hopey Obama. This is the second published photo I have seen where an Obambi supporter placed it next to Che which seems to be the common thread among his supporters. One was at an Obama campaign office and now this one in the judge’s office. [The picture can be viewed at the linked source]
To Socialists (Marxism is a form of Socialism) like Burge, Che, and Obama, the Constitution is a living document that can be bent and reshaped to fit just about any need. They have no concern for the basis of the law or the idea that the Constitution lays out a solid foundation rather than a flexible platform. They do not concern themselves with these things because they know that they can bend and shape the Constitution to fit their whims, like not executing someone because of a little pain. I guess he found pain in the Constitution where the SCOTUS found abortion.
Speaking of abortion, ever notice how so many leftist twits will work their butts off to keep a convicted murderer from being executed but will do anything they can to help murder unborn children? An unborn child feels pain but that does not stop the left from worshiping abortion in the church of liberalism. They take great pride in allowing a doctor to snip open a kid’s head and suck his brains out just seconds before he is born. Obama even agrees with allowing them to be born and then left alone so they can die, simply because their mothers did not want them.
The world would be a better place if these liberals had been aborted by their mothers.
