Supreme Court lifts stay of Alabama execution

First saw this in a tweet from Chris Geidner (Buzzfeed). It seems gratutious (at least explain yourselves! both sides!) to not let the 11CA stay for now as they examine the question; not sure why Kagan didn't publicly join the other three dissenting. Was told already I should not assume vote of those not publicly noted but unclear why the presumption of silence = consent should not apply. The person is due to be executed tomorrow. [And, he is.]

ETA: The Hate U Give was very good, a sort of fiction companion to Chris Hayes' latest. It's about a teen straddlilng two worlds, a witness to a police shooting. Movie in works.
