See, The Supreme Court Still Works Just Fine

All this talk about the Supreme Court being dysfunctional with the death of Supreme Justice Scalia, well, here's a story that shows the court still is working just fine:
From Fox News: The Texas man convicted of killing a city worker in 2005, whose sentence was appealed to and ultimately upheld by U.S. Supreme Court, was executed Tuesday evening.
Adam Ward, 33, received a lethal injection for shooting and killing Michael Walker in Commerce, about 65 miles northeast of Dallas. Walker was a code enforcement officer who had been taking photos of junk piled outside the Ward family home.
Ward insisted the shooting was in self-defense, but the 44-year-old Walker only had a camera and a cellphone.
The execution came after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal that argued Ward's mental illness, including delusions, should have disqualified him from the death penaltyhttp://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/03/22/killer-executed-after-supreme-court-denies-appeal-amid-mental-health-concerns.html?intcmp=hplnws
