The Supreme Court ruled Thursday in favor of allowing a Georgia death row inmate to alter his execution method from lethal injection to firing squad .
In a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Elena Kagan , the high court ruled that inmate Michael Nance’s medical aversion to the use of lethal injection is well within his constitutional rights under the Eighth Amendment , which prevents cruel and unusual punishment.

“A prisoner must identify a readily available alternative method of execution that would significantly reduce the risk of severe pain. In doing so, the prisoner is not confined to proposing a method authorized by the executing State’s law; he may instead ask for a method used in other States,” Kagan wrote.
As a person who feels her odds of being killed by the state increase daily, I just want it out there that I prefer firing squad. https://t.co/2Y0ZCJXPeT
