Last quote by Stephen G. Breyer

It has nothing to do with the need for speedy punishment. Four have been on death row for over 20 years. All have been housed in solitary confinement for at least 10 years. Apparently the reason the state decided to proceed with these eight executions is that the 'use by' date of the state's execution drug is about to expire.feedback
