The United States Supreme Court has refused to stop the execution of convicted killer Carl Wayne Buntion in Texas.
Buntion is 77, the oldest man on Death Row in Texas.
He’s been there for three decades and has not been executed yet.
SCOTUS Justice Stephen Breyer penned a short statement questioning the constitutionality of the death penalty because it “subjects death row inmates to decades of especially severe, dehumanizing conditions.”
In reality, execution takes just minutes.
It’s actually endless legal appeals by attorneys that end up delaying death penalty cases for decades.
