Kavanaugh joins liberals in tough questions on execution plans for man with rare condition – The Washington Post

Modern and ancient execution methods — a firing squad, electrocution, hanging, lethal gas, being burned at the stake — all made appearances during the court’s sober assessment of ways to kill Russell Bucklew without violating the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
