Looking like Hitler, ya think ?????
Finish the job judge!
You're right, we don't do any of that. Sorry, my apologies. I will shut my mouth and continue moving in line. Bahhhh.
Let's just go back to hanging. Its a simple rope...it's over in a snap.
Gurf, you are full of shit.
Im with you Doreen!
ya ask me this mofo looks like hitlers great grandson!
I dont like the injection anyway. Shooting, beheading or hanging much better.
Or inject it with juices (I think he's getting the injection)
Fry this turkey before thanksgiving
Gurf you are so full of shit.
People should really try and understand the death penalty. We have throughout our history as a nation decided that certain acts are reprehensible, one of which being murder.
We are somehow ok with soldiers spraying bullets, and drones dropping bombs on innocent families. Roughly 50% of us are ok with ripping babies out of uteri. We are ok with committing the same act on one human that he/she committed on another. In fact we pay for all of these. At least admit how hypocritical you are.
Now we have two hug a thugs
He's got a Hitler thing going on in this mugshot.
UPDATE: Now two judges have granted stays of execution.
if you like your death sentence, you can keep it.
Don't give him an injection. Give him a bullet. If he thought that was good enough for his victims certainty he should agree its good enough for him.
Over the course of 36 years, given the average cost, we have spent roughly $1.5m keeping this piece of shit alive. Cruel and unusual? Get on with it.
I am against the death penalty and think it should be life in real prison with hard labour and vitamin supplements with bread and water.
With that said to allow an animal to say his death would be inhumane by using this drug is utter BS and the judge allowing it is doing a grave injustice to the tax payer and the victims families. Did the victims get an appeal in their sentence? Was their death carried out humanely?
This just goes to prove the death penalty is a mockery and it is cheaper and better to lock these animals away in a hole and forget about them.
The court system in this country is so full of shit
His victims didn't get a chance to appeal their deaths or sue for cruel & unusual punishment...so why is he allowed to??
Spend a minute with this disgrace if a human and you will know he is nothing but a propaganda spouting worthless piece of crap. He is proud he killed all of those defenseless men, women AND children. People do not realize what this kind of press does inside of the DOC. There will be all kinds of racial tension, more so than normal.
Sounds like the federal judge is a hug a thug
A bullet to the motherfuckin' head would be more than humane enough.....
This guy has been on death row since 77. WTF is wrong with this fkn dumb ass judge?
Is it just me, or does his mug shot make him resemble Hitler? (Hitler without his mustache)
Just how much of a hard on does Jay get from watching people die?
ok is it just me or does this douche bag look like Hitler?
@John Grady The grave injustice to us taxpayers is that we kept this monster alive on death row for 36 years at a cost of $726K. What a fucking waste of our money!
