WASHINGTON -- Injecting last-minute uncertainty into a case that has garnered international attention, the U.S. Supreme Court considered a late-hour appeal by Texas death row inmate Jose Ernesto Medellin on Tuesday night, disrupting the timetable for his scheduled execution in the 1993 rape and murder of two Houston teenagers.

Looks like its an offical hold while they consider the appeal. Hoepfully they will give a negative answer to that last-minute appeal tonight.
Shoot the coward.
Get it over with.
He’s a freaking monster.
Justice Kennedy’s fingerprints are all over this one.
"To hell with the UN, to hell with the Secretary General, to hell with the World Court, to hell with Mexico and its meddling, and to hell with Medellin...tonight.
This murdering animal should have been put down years ago. God forgive me if I sin in so saying, but had it been my daughter, he would already be dead. I may have ended up in prison...but such a murdering animal would not have lived off of society for years, and would not be making such a spectacle now.
Forgive me my directness, but what this individual and his cohorts did is beyond imagination and evil, and they all should long ago have been executed for it. Having raised three daughters my dander and anger is worked right up over this story and the disgusting attempts by these foreigners to subvert justice.
The un must be laughing at us.
I posted an article earlier today regaring this animal.
This stay is sickening. If I had to make a wager, I’d say it was Ginsburg who agreed to the stay.
Sickening abomination of justice.
The fact that anyone thinks this maggot should be allowed to continue to live shows just how far civilization has fallen into the sewer.
How about an appeal for the relatives of the murdered kids who have to go on re-living this nightmare every time that piece of crap gets another reprieve?
150 years ago the piece of crap would have been stretching a rope by now.
JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED.
“An unlikely cast of legal allies, including the Bush administration and much of the world’s diplomatic community, embraced Medellin’s position, warning that the United States will be accused of violating the treaty if Medellin is executed without a hearing on his consular access claim. The case pitted President Bush against his home state of Texas.”
Bush never ceases to disgust me. Perhaps one should post the victims pictures on the daily dose. Interupt their pathetic love fests with a visual of the effects of his true character.
If it had been a member of my family this putrid scum raped and murdered we wouldn’t be witnessing these political machinations now, because he’d have taken a dirt nap a long time ago.
Bush never ceases to disgust me.
Exactly. See my post 5.
Yep. With Kennedy, its 5-4, the Mexican national gets to rot the rest of his life in prison.
See my post 5, and with all due respect...to hell with Condi and Mukasey too.
“150 years ago the piece of crap would have been stretching a rope by now.”
He would have been stretched within five minutes of getting caught.
“Bush never ceases to disgust me.”
Ramos and Campion are sitting in federal prison while this POS gets an appeal. WTF? I voted for this man twice?????
Scalia is the circuit justice for the 5th Circuit. He’d have to have a say in any stay.
