PETITION FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF
For their causes of action, the plaintiffs, by and through counsel,state and allege all as follows.
Nature of the Action
1.As of the filing of this action, Missouri is the only state in thecountry to turn to propofol as a means of carrying out lethalinjections—or to the intentional injection, into a conscious person, of any lethal agent known to cause pain.2.This is an action seeking a declaration that the defendantsuse of the execution protocol defendant Lombardi issued on May 15,2012, violates the Ex Post Facto Clauses of Mo. Const. art. I, § 13, andU.S. Const. art. I, § 10; the Supremacy Clause, U.S. Const. art. VI, cl. 2;the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United StatesConstitution; Mo. Const. art. I, § 21; and the separation of powersguaranty of Mo. Const. art. II, § 1, and therefore, as well, a permanentinjunction against its application.3.This Court has the authority to issue declaratory judgmentsand injunctions against state actors when, as here, the plaintiffs showthat the state actors’ enforcement of a state-law provision (whether inthe form of statutes or analogous to the protocol) is in conflict with theUnited States Constitution or the Missouri Constitution.- 3 -

It is really a shame when our Justice system is more concerned that the lethal injection might or could cause the murderers some pain and violates his 8th amendment. What happened to the so called victims rights. Doesn't anyone care how these girls have been beaten, raped and violently murdered? NOthing is going to change in our society unless we get tough on crime.
Carol Angelbeck added this note
This is in response to the appeal filed by 21 death row inmates including M Worthington who broke into my daughters condo in Lake St. Louis 9/30/95 and raped and strangled her twice by his own admission but was kind enough to leave semen. He was on parole from Illinois when he did this so I can't believe a court could uphold this appeal for these murderers. She was 24 and a student at UMSL.
