RIP Wesley Ira Purkey IN 7/16/2020

Purkey, 68, was originally scheduled to be executed on Wednesday evening, but a flurry of last minute legal filings delayed his death.
Early Thursday morning, the Supreme Court cleared the way for his execution, lifting injunctions from a federal judge in Washington, DC, who halted his execution and ordered further evaluation of claims about Purkey's mental competency.

What? Last I heard it was on hold. May he R.I.P.

I wonder, if tRump refuses to leave the People's House after he isn't re-elected, will Barr also refuse to leave his post?

I'm not getting it... Does Trump and Barr think that restarting federal executions will hide the COVID stuff and maybe lure Republican's back to him to show he's "tough on crime"?

I heard the family of Lee's victims wanted to go to the execution, not to watch it or get closure but to oppose the death penalty but didn't feel it was safe with COVID going on.
