Jesse Pacheco's comment, January 22, 2013 1:46 PM
The abortion law is against thre 8th amandment becasue its cruel and unusal punishments. They want abortion to stop so they brung the 8th amendment into it now. Abortion is killing the baby so the 8th amanement cant have that. But alot of people are for abortion so there still trying to fight the act.\

This article is about over crouded prisons. And its unfair for the pissoners to have no room. The law lets no one have a crual punishment and to have no room to move is going against the law.

The supreme court ruled that over crowding a prison Is unconstitutional.  With this happening it means that they will have to transfer over 30,000 inmates to different prisons to make it right.  Do you believe that the Supreme Court made the right decision with this?

I don't, they did something wrong and law breaking so they dug their hole and they can lay in it. If we had to transfer prisoners till all the prisoners are comfy and roomy, they wouldn't be learning a lesson and we would be spending more money to fund more prisons to be built.

In this article it talks about a judge saying that Kentucky needs to have one drug that kills the inmates instead of three.  I believe that this is an unusual punishment which is against the 8th amendment.  They should have to instantly kill them, not slowly with 3 different drugs. 

Sfitzg35's comment, February 27, 2014 12:02 PM
I agree with the single drug execution because I believe that the three drugs is against the eighth amendment because it is cruel and unusual. The one drug will at least reduce the risk of pain and suffering.
Ian (ACL) Whitney's comment, March 2, 2014 5:08 AM
I also agree with this single drug. No one should have to feel the drugs being pumped through their veins knowing that they will be dead soon but in a slow and unnecessary way.

This article talks about the 8th Amendment of the US Constitution. Why this relates to government and law is that it protects people's rights. The 8th Amendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishments against discretionary acts of courts. It also imposes illegal and cruel punishments that are unknown to fixed law.
