After split tied SCOTUS stay vote, Alabama completes last scheduled execution of 2016

Execution after a 4-4 vote is distasteful and (Glossip aside) sounds like there might have been issues with the execution itself. There were a series of orders yesterday, including two brief stays and the final vote. The jury here voted 7-5 to recommend life but the judge overrode them. The justices, a trend at this point, didn't explain themselves. A person died, four didn't think he should, but didn't say why. You know, screw you.
