BREAKING: Obama Judge Blocks Execution of Convicted Murderer Hours Before Execution

American Marxists’ love affair with convicted murderers stands at odds – like, about 180 degrees in opposite – to their love affair of abortion. In the former, no life is more precious; in the latter, ‘babies’ lives don’t matter.’
Just hours before the federal government was set to resume executions on Monday, in accordance with the law and after having satisfied one ridiculous judge-imposed requirement after another for nearly two decades, another activist jurist has issued an injunction.
A U.S. district judge on Monday ordered a new delay in federal executions, hours before the first lethal injection was scheduled to be carried out at a federal prison in Indiana. The Trump administration immediately appealed to a higher court, asking that the executions move forward.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said there are still legal issues to resolve and that “the public is not served by short-circuiting legitimate judicial process." The executions, pushed by the administration, would be the first carried out at the federal level since 2003.
The new hold on executions came a day after a federal appeals court lifted a hold on the execution of Daniel Lewis Lee, of Yukon, Oklahoma, which is scheduled for 4 p.m. EDT on Monday at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. He was convicted in Arkansas of the 1996 killings of gun dealer William Mueller, his wife, Nancy, and her 8-year-old daughter, Sarah Powell.
The judge, for the record, is an Obama appointee. Surprised?
In any event, the stay in execution also comes as the family of the victims actually petitioned a federal court to have it stopped allegedly because they feared contracting the coronavirus if they were forced to travel to witness it, the AP noted. And they were prepared to go all the way to the Supreme Court if need be.
“"The federal government has put this family in the untenable position of choosing between their right to witness Danny Lee’s execution and their own health and safety,” their lawyer, Baker Kurrus, said Sunday.
Bizarre. But the fact is, all bleeding hearts aside, U.S. Attorney General William Barr said that moving forward with the executions wasn’t about COVID, or ‘revenge,’ or anything else other that justice for the victims, under the law. Not only that, but the execution would finally bring some needed closure to victims and the community where they died.
Oh, and did we mention that Lewis was convicted in 1996 – some 24 years ago?
Don’t we have a Constitution that says something about “establishing justice?”
The fact that federal executions haven’t taken place since the early 2000s was all political, to begin with. Left-wing organizations that have no problems ensuring women ‘have a right’ to end the lives of their unborn children similarly oppose the very human executions of murders who have been convicted by a jury of their peers in a duly-sanctioned court of law.
But wait, you say. Even the family doesn’t want this guy executed. Well, it’s not up to the family. That decision was made, long ago, by a jury.
Enough already. Justice delayed is justice denied.
