Storyboard Text

  • Russell  Bucklew was arrested and convicted for many bad things, including rape and murder.
  • His crimes ultimately sentenced him to death, but for many years, he challenged the state of Missouri  on the constitutionality of his style of execution.
  • He appealed his case all the way up to the United States Supreme Court - the highest court in the land!
  • Two weeks before his execution, he gave a new reason to why the lethal injection would be unconstitutional on him. He claimed his condition of  cavernous hemangioma would cause him needless pain!
  • In a 5-4 vote, his appeal was denied by the Supreme Court. The court opinion was penned by  Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was joined in the decision by  Justices  Clarence Thomas,  Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, and Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  • The dissenters on the court were Justices Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader  Ginsburg. Sotomayor's opinion stated that it was wrong to have a condemned inmate to think of a way to be executed.
