>Does the ACLU not understand the First Amendment? Don’t they mean the Eight Amendment? Or am I just missing something?
Here is the text of the First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
From the article: The ACLU says the injection protocol violates the rights of execution witnesses by not allowing them to see if the inmate is experiencing pain before death
Personally, I think the death penalty is a waste of tax payers’ money not to mention the obvious ethical issues. But, I don’t understand the ACLU’s argument. Are there people who want to see the inmate experience pain before death? I still don’t see how that is applicable to the First Amendment.
I told you a study wasn’t necessary to show that no one understands the First Amendment. That article is proof enough.
