Hey says he"s so fat, executioners would have trouble finding his veins and he might not be properly anesthetized.

American prisons suck. We pussy-foot around killing the people that need to die and we don`t devote enough resources to the ones that can be fixed.

"All of you guys make me sick. People who rape and murder are obviously not in their right mind. If a kid hits you, are you gonna punch him in the face? The death penalty promotes killing as an OK solution to a difficult problem. Its sickening."
------------------

So what would your solution be to a difficult problem? Lock him up for the rest of his life for taking the lives of two college students after brutally raping them? Or get him "therapy" and after its complete release him back into society?

He is using a bullpoo excuse in trying to prolong the inevitable thats going to be administered by the state, or someone else. I personally wouldn`t mind if he were to be drowned in water or burned alive for his crimes.

Put yourself in the victims parent`s shoes. You think their going to let the rapist get off scotch free because he is "not in his right mind"?
The piece of poo should be CONTENT, that he got to live another 22 years, half the lifetim

In my opinion someone like that doesn`t deserve a quick painless death anyways. It kind of pisses me off that he obviously shows no signs of guilt or remorse, otherwise I`d say screw the death penalty. That would be too easy of a way for him to get out of this life. Now that I`ve seen some of the other opinions, I like the idea of letting him starve to skinny first. Then maybe still accidentally forget the anesthesia. eh. oh well.

1. Murder`s not always wrong.

2. There`s such a thing as false accusations. Sometimes people are found guilty of crimes they did not commit.

3. You`re framed for a crime and you`re found guilty. You were framed... should you be immediately separated from all your rights as a non-accused citizen? No.

4. You were framed for a crime and have been sentenced to death. You realize, depressingly, there`s no way out of the execution. You`ve been accused of raping and murdering a hundred people in the most gruesome way possible, but you -didn`t-. Now would you want your death to be equally painful, or painless?

5. Because I love playing devil`s advocate, does it matter if a death is painless or not? In the end the executed is dead.

6. If you commit a crime in your less wise days, and are arrested for it fifty years later... do you deserve to be killed for it? Is there not the possibility you`ve changed?

Just some thoughts. I haven`t a stance on the article.

I`m skinny as anything and they wouldn`t be able to kill me with lethal injection. The pressure in my veins is weird to the point that if you stick a needle in it twists upwards and blocks the hole with the wall of the vein and you can`t extract or inject anything successfully.

Donating blood is always a pain.

Think of the person who must execute these people, though. These criminals have done horrendous things, but still, they feel.
Maybe I`m just a big mush, but no matter what they did, I think I`d feel much better killing someone knowing they felt no pain on the way out.
If I had to hurt him I`d wonder if I were any better than the murderer himself. :/

State mandated executions should be as painful as needed to get the job done. Plain and simple, as long as it`s not DESIGNED to hurt it`s fine.

You have a condition where you`ve been popping pills for your life to stop yourself from dying? well congrats because now you get to be awake as you die from the needle.

It`s gonna hurt? Well shoulda thought of that before you raped and killed two people. But what about my rights as a citizen? You lost those when you killed somebody.

When you break the rules of a society, you break yourself from that society, and can no longer be protected by it`s rules. This has been the way humans have lived for millenia. You broke the biggest no no of all, something common in all law.

No murder. Too bad, i hope this fat waste feels the paralyzer burning his veins before he blacks out.

To those complaining how bloodthirsty people are... I guess the reason is because they feel for the people he raped and murdered. I certainly don`t want this guy walking around. Over here there is no such thing as a life or death sentence. Raped and murdered some girls? pfft, here`s 5 years jail buddy. see you in two. I wish we had the american justice system.

If any bastard raped and murdered my daughters I would be out for blood, that`s for sure

Hard to get anesthetic? Well, get a dentist in there...they have some stuff which makes you feel good all over. (Smells like grape too!...okay that`s what they all say...we know they are lying.) Anyways, there is more than one way to administer anesthetic..needle isn`t the only way. FAIL.

I`d just like to add: Did his victims (or many victims from rape and murder) have a painless experience? Did the murderer administer anasthetic and sterilise the weapon?
No? Then why do we want execution methods that arent painful, intensely unpleasant and terror inducing experiences? Humane execution can kiss my backside.

America needs to decide, are they going to continue to use a process of execution, proven to be painful and unreliable, or finally switch to hypoxia.
Simply lowering the air pressure in a room till you pass out and die from lack of oxygen is painless and works on everyone.
Fatty McFatcakes and average bodied people too.

Personally I`m all for just letting the guy be awake and pushing drain-o through his veins. The system is corrupt enough to let this waste of human existence continue to breath for 17 years after condemning him to death, but they can`t be cruel to some fat bastard that the state made fat by overfeeding him in prison.

Absolutely ridiculous. Just kill him good n` proper and humane, or disregard all that nonsense and let him be awake to feel his heart stop and his body shut down, he deserves it for raping people.

Yeah, I vote guillotine his ass or shoot him in the head a few dozen times. I`m sure the rape wasn`t painless, why should his death be? I really never understood that logic "I raped and murdered people and it wasn`t painless and they didn`t get a choice in the matter... but i can`t be killed in a painful manner - it must be sterile and absolutely pain free!" Well eff that, we`ll just run you over a few times.

Bleh. </3 rapists or murderers.

Maybe we could give him liposuction without pain meds or anesthetic and then make him eat his own fat and the immediately give him a lethal injection before he gains back the weight.

^^ It makes sense from a legal standpoint, but that`s very different from making any sense in reality...

Anyway, I`ve got a solution to this guy`s problem. In the words of Marcel Wallace, I suggest we "get medieval on his ass"

Works for me. Maybe we could quarter him. I always thought that technique was great.

well that problem seems pretty simple to solve, he gets nothing but water and lettuce until he`s skinny enough to stab a needle into, he maybe take away his bed and chain him to a treadmill that would speed un the process.

@davymid. I think it is against some law to use an unsterilized needle in a "health" setting. I think it is because of the AIDS crises in the 80s when they changed procedures so that no needle can be reused in healthcare.

At the same time it does seem a little stupid but my guess is that if some crafty lawyer found out about it, there would be a nasty lawsuit or the person about to be executed might get a stay until they change to clean needles.

I hope that made sense...

He`s using the old "cruel and unusual punishment" arguement - fair enough.

I have to wonder though if the women that he brutally raped and murdered were offered the opportunity to express their thoughts on the cruelty which was inflicted by this retard.

I suggest that his lack of care for their suffering is a more than sufficient rationale to disregard his concern for his own discomfort.

You know, sometimes the death penalty is stupid (they don`t let people commit suicide).

I heard of a guy on death row, with like 2 days left to live. He succeeded in poisoning himself (for suicide). They rushed the guy to a hospital, saved his life, then rushed him back to prison and killed him. Waste of resources if you ask me.

As for the fat guy, well, that`s sort of sad.
