    clarence hill's execution was stayed within mere moments of it being a fait accompli...the stay can be lifted at any time.

    Supreme Court halts US execution



    The US Supreme Court has blocked the execution of a Florida man to consider his appeal over the method used to carry out the punishment.
    Clarence Hill was to be executed on Wednesday for the 1982 murder of a Pensacola police officer.
    But the court wants to consider if the chemicals used in the execution cause pain - thus violating a Constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
    Anti-death penalty campaigners say the move could delay other US executions.

    Hill had been strapped to a gurney and intra-venous lines were running into his arms late on Tuesday night, his lawyer said, when Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary stay.

    Yes. Lord knows we don't want to cause the poor defenseless murderer pain.
