S-ss-sh!

Можно теперь и на кол сажать

The Supreme Court has declared prisoners have no constitutional right to a “painless death,” allowing the execution of a convicted murderer to go forward despite his protestations that lethal injection would cause him to suffer.
Reversing a 2018 decision, the court ruled that death-row prisoner Russell Bucklew’s constitutional protections from “cruel and unusual punishment” did not exempt him from pain and that he’d failed to present sufficient evidence that his preferred method of execution, the gas chamber, was less painful or that it could be “readily implemented.”
“The Eighth Amendment does not guarantee a prisoner a painless death,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the court’s majority opinion, “something that, of course, isn’t guaranteed to many people, including most victims of capital crimes.” The court was split along party lines, with five conservatives backing the ruling and four liberals dissenting.

Верховный суд своим консервативным большинством постановил, что приговоренных к высшей мере можно казнить практически любым способом и они не защищены восьмой поправкой, которая запрещает жестокие наказания. "Смерть от тысячи ран" становится реальностью.

По-моему это верх толерастии.

Voters in Chicago on Tuesday elected former federal prosecutor Lori Lightfoot to become their next mayor, making Chicago the largest city to elect an African-American woman as its top elected official.
With votes in 95% of precincts counted, Lightfoot had 73.7% of the vote and Preckwinkle 26.3%.
The win by Lightfoot, who identifies as a lesbian and will be Chicago’s first woman of color to serve as mayor, also means the Windy City is the biggest U.S. city to pick an openly gay mayor.
Lightfoot, who has never held elective office, easily defeated Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, who was one of Chicago’s most prominent politicians. The contest was lopsided with Lightfoot beating Preckwinkle in each of the city's 50 wards.
In a city weighed down by myriad problems—economic inequality, persistent gun violence in pockets of the city, $28 billion in unfunded pension obligations and endemic political corruption—Lightfoot made the case to voters that she was the outsider that Chicago needs to shake things up.
