Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Too fat to kill?

Story here.

Maybe they should use bigger needles.

Loved this quote, "Heath says Cooey's weight, combined with the potential drug resistance, increases the risk he would not be properly anesthetized.

"All of the experts agree if the first drug doesn't work, the execution is going to be excruciating," Cooey's public defender, Kelly Culshaw Schneider, said Monday. "

So even if he isn't properly anesthetized, how long would the execution take? Twenty minutes? Thirty?

How long did each of his victims suffer before they died?

Yeah, I know. Only cruel, hardhearted barbaric knuckledraggers would dare ask that question. Tough.

Why dont they consider just a single bullet to the head? Its quick, painless, guaranteed kill, a little messy, but easily contained.

If I were on death row, I would petition for the single bullet instead of an injection. Hell, I`d rather be hanged than shot up with drugs...

just my 2c

Now he is whinnying about been killed. These are people that killed by the sword but chicken out when the sword comes their way. I agree, a bullet will do the trick and it is super cheap.

I like your thinking.

Sometime ago I read an article that stated an African country (Kenya I believe) allowed the family of the murder victim to perform the execution by shooting the murderer point blank in the back of the head. I always thought it was an improvement over anything we have.

I can't believe this is even an issue. If obesity is complicating the execution perhaps we should consider other methods for some inmates. I doubt firing squad would be as potentially painful as the injection. If the lawmakers find that to be barbaric I think a diet should be mandated for any obese death row inmates, at least those with execution dates approaching.
I am not a conservative, I do not belong to the NRA, I'm a liberal who has a hard time believing that this is an issue.

Well, break my heart. There is a simple solution to all this, the same one(s) they use for cancer patients to get chemo drugs when their veins are shot (like mine were when I had breast cancer). There are several options, including a PICC line, implantable port, and a central line. Obesity, bad veins, etc, should not be an obstacle to seeing justice served.

they had a case years ago where they had to let a guy out of jail, because he was to fat too keep. I will never forget it!! We need alternate ways to execute. I preffer the eye for an eye. However, we hanging, and the firing
squad seem to work. It's fast. These slow tourture murderers of little children, wont have to whine and pule that "The needle hurts! it's not going in right!" of course he would know as the little wuss probably just stabbed to death a child and dismembered her. So this guys too fat. Improvise. Get a couple of car batteries to juice up old sparkie. and, snap, crackle, pop, hope you enjoyed the kids.

The appeals process, I would assume then, must be very limited in Kenya.

if they don't have any bullets, they can borrow some of mine.

Too fat to execute? Were the 2 girls he raped and murdered too young or willing? I agree with capital punishment being performed as humanely as possible, but I'm sure the 2 girls didn't get a say in how he executed them. Furthermore, with the extravagant obesity rates in America, I'm sure there is someone in America with plenty of experience in finding obese people's veins just as easily as any other. I say take all his rights away just as he did of those girls. He doesn't deserve a stay of execution just because he can't keep a fork away from his mouth!

Yeah, the death would be excruciating... I sure hope so?

This is the most ridiculous thing; to read that he raped and killed two women but needs a humane death himself... Right, that makes a lot of sense. I'd like to reinstate medieval torture dungeons for guys like him.

Let's watch some heads roll by using the Guillotine! Lethal Injection is too merciful for some of these death rowers. I'm sure the guillotine blades come in XXXL, and they wouldn't have to worry about the sorry asses' poor veins. As the Queen of Hearts said, "Off with their heads!"

Michael Jones said...

F**k this guy.

1. Electric chair.
2. Firing squad.
3. Hanging.
4. Gas Chamber.
5. Guillotine.

Five options. Not one would have his weight or medications as a potential factor.

Problem solved.

yeah, but there's always the chance the gun may misfire causing the inmate to soil himself, how inhumane would that be... LOL..
