On June 19, 2014, the State of Florida executed John Ruthell Henry, rounding out a 24 hour period where three different executions took place in the United States — the first executions since that horrible event back in April, where Oklahoma’s lethal execution went terribly wrong.  

The United States Supreme Court declined to act in any last-minute blocking of the June 19th execution, despite concern by many that Henry was not mentally competent to undergo capital punishment.  (See our earlier post, "Will Florida Execute John Ruthell Henry Next Week?".) 

Apparently, lethal injections are still going strong in the United States despite what happened in April — and regardless of the controversy over using these drugs as ways to kill people.
