ARGUING THAT HE IS TOO OBESE TO BE EXECUTED ADDS AN EVEN MORE GROTESQUENESS TO THIS PROLONGED OUTRAGE THAT IT SICKENS EVEN ME, AND I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF HOW EVIL MEN CAN BE, BUT THIS HAS GONE ON NOW FAR TOO LONG FOR THESE POOR FAMILIES TO HAVE TO ENDURE. KILL THIS F***ER NOW! THE PEOPLE DEMAND IT!!! JUSTICE DEMANDS IT! AND THE MURDERED CRY OUT FOR IT!

Its just amazing that we have fed and cared for this total piece of **** for over twenty years. His bones should have been dust by now. Spare us the sob stories and give this guy the long overdue dirt nap he deserves.

If the state doesn't want to kill him, I say we release him to the custody of the victims' brothers. I'm sure they would know how to administer the appropriate punishment.

Even if he didn't kill them, he deserves the death penalty for the brutal rapes and beatings. I knew of him in high school and was not surprised when I found out what crime he was accused of committing.

And what kind of "man" is his attorney who does not have a problem with his adult daughter cozying up to Cooey?

We all know next month the drip will get him. Point is, he's squirmming in that cell knowing what's coming...the darkness of death!

How can Walsh be so tough on crime this week and speak before the clemency board about putting Cooey to death when she did just the opposite last week? How can you release from the death penalty, a repeated child rapist who repeatedly raped his infant little children. How can you know that and know he murdered another older woman and tried to murder her grand daughter after raping both of them. This man was an animal and she plea bargained him to life in prison. Sherri Walsh is NOT tough on crime.

That same "man" probably came up with the word "changed" in relation to the murderer. Some other enemy of society is also using that word. Beware it is us against them.

These families deserve some closure; you murder 2 people and think that now your life should be spared; here's a thought "DONT RAPE & KILL AND YOU WONT BE IN THIS SITUATION"; I hope that the parole board will not postpone his death again; another 3 years got him fat enough to get all the attention he's been receiving.

The families were most likely involved in that decision and chose that over another painful public trial. If it were me, that would be my choice. This prosecutor tries to work with victims and their families to offer them the solution that will satisfy them with the least amount of pain.

The reason this slimy animal is overweight is that he has spent twenty-two years on death row, reading Hustler Magazines, eating Cheetohs, and not exercising. Who cares if he is obese? Two young women died tragically and unnecessarily because of him.

Time for you to pay up now, FATSO.

Cooey keeps blaming his co-defendant for the murders. What's his co-defendant say? it would be interesting to hear what HE says about Cooey's role in the murders.

If Cooey is saying he is a changed man, he should accept his death as the right thing and stop appealing. There is no room amongst humans for this obese scumbag.
