Inhofe’s Statement on SCOTUS Lethal Injection Opinion

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion delivered today in the Glossip v. Gross case, which upheld Oklahoma’s lethal injection protocol as constitutional: 

“I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to preserve the states’ ability to implement capital punishment for the most heinous of crimes. This ruling delivers justice in the case of individuals who brutally and callously murdered their victims, such as the nine-month-old whose spine was snapped, an 11-month-old who was raped and then murdered, an innocent coworker who was beat to death with a baseball bat, and a corrections officer who was stabbed to death.”
