US Supreme Court briefly halts Texas execution

• The Agitator
Does the fact that Skinner asked his lawyer—in writing—to request the test, and his lawyer refused, possibly provide an opening, here? Also wondering if the Court may rule on the conflict problems of an accused murderer getting a court-appointed attorney who not only was a former DA, but who actually prosecuted the accused in another case.

 I was for capital punishment before I was against.

The reason is because government should not have powers that individuals do not.

Individuals delegate their power to the state, states to the feds.

Therefore, logically, the feds should have the same or lesser power than a state, and a state the same or lesser than a person.

If a person does not have the right to execute another person, then neither should the state.
