I actually did have it pointed out to me that this may be a 5th Amendment issue, and that the hole in the foot was self-inflicted. No more evidence of that than anything else, but it's just as possible.

Seems it was the mid 80s - but at the time you would have thought 98% of the population had some type of breathing disorder. Letters to the Editor each and every day whining. I'm with givemeliberty - it was my time of the year to put on a flannel shirt and suspenders - get out there with my rake and start burning - I felt like Paul Bunyan.

If you don't have yard waste pickup you have to allow burning.

Middleton Runs Out of Appeals

MO Supreme Court Overrules Stay of Execution

The Missouri Supreme Court has overruled a death row inmate’s motion to continue a stay of execution, clearing the way for John Middleton’s sentence to be carried out.

In its ruling, the Court also denied Middleton’s motion for a writ of habeas corpus, based on the belief that he was incompetent, and his execution would violate the 8th Amendment.  

On Tuesday in St. Louis, U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry delayed the execution two separate times. The second delay came just two hours before Middleton was to be executed at 12:01 Wednesday morning. 

Perry ruled that the court must first decide if the prisoner is competent. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster then appealed to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. They had previously supported the execution.   

Middleton was put on death row in 1995 after being convicted of murdering three people in Northwest Missouri, because he feared they would go to police about his methamphetamine dealing. 

The state is now free to carry out its’ 6th execution of 2014. It’s not immediately known when that will happen.
