There ought to be a vigil or something honoring the victims and the families before and after the execution. Theres going to be some stupid gathering at St. patricks downtown for people advocating AGAINST the death penalty. I'm sure Cook will have a front row seat. The loser.
There is something terribly terribly wrong about people gathering to try and save this piece of
garbage (Woods) from being executed. He had this city in complete fear, and the lives of those women who got away have a life time of healing and I'm sure PTSD. Woods is only evidence that evil does exist. I can't even imagine what the mothers have gone through. I hope this man burns in hell.

The picture of Desiree Wheatley in the paper like a little girl just breaks my heart.

Now, why can't we El Pasoans get special priveledges to watch this execution via pay per view???

NO DNA, NO BLOOD, NO WITNESSES, NO CONFESSION. NO MONEY TO DEFEND HIMSELF.
BUT HE WAS FOUND GUILTY ANYWAY. A POOR MAN STANDS LITTLE CHANCE IN EL PASO COURTS TO GET JUSTICES.
HOW COULD HE NOT BE FOUND GUILTY WHEN THE GOVERNMENT HAS MORE MONEY, MORE ATTORNEYS, MORE INVESTIGATORS THAN THE DEFENDANT HAS.
WHO'S NEXT ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK. YOUR SON, YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR NEIGHBOR?
Uh Richamond, Tx., don't you have some cows you need to care for or some horse s*** to clean up?
Leave the crimes and punishments to we city people ok?

A CONVICTED FELON CAN'T BE A JUROR. BUT HE CAN TESTIFY IN A CASE AND BASED ON HIS WORD A PERSON IS SENT TO DEATH ROW.
THE D.A. COMBINES HIS CASES INTO ONE TRIAL. NOT GIVING THE DEFENDANT A CHANCE TO DEFEND HIMSELF ON EACH OF THE CASES. HOW CAN HIS SO CALLED ATTORNEYS DEFEND HIM.
MY QUESTION IS WHAT DID THE INMATE GET AS HIS REWARD FROM THE D.A.'S OFFICE FOR ALL HIS EFFORT.

THE FELON WAS NOT EVEN THERE AT THE CRIME SCENE WITH MR. WOOD. THE FELON WAS IN PRISON FACING 69 YEARS.

God bless you and your mother. He is GUILTY 100%, I got him off the streets 25 years ago for the courts to let him get smarter and kill this time. Any one who believes he is innocent is in a cave. How can you be seen with each victim the LAST time they were seen alive and not be guilty? We have been paying way to long for him to breathe.

Oh, but there is evidence. Circumstantial evidence is evidence. Screw you, slime. Moan for a monster, it won't make a difference. Go to blazes, POS.

HOW DO THE COPS EXPLAIN THE 300 OTHER WOMEN KILLED. IT TAKES 15 MINUTES TO CROSS THE INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE.
THE COPS NEW THE F.B.I. ALREADY HAD A SUSPECT THAT HAD CONFESS TO THESE CRIMES.
THE D.A. WANTED ALL THE GLORY FOR HIMSELF.

Wrong Answer, the killing stopped once he was off the street.

The bottom line is:
Never trust a biker..... They are simply too violent. Yes- there will be those that will say they do their bike runs for charity so on and so forth, but they are still violent people.
I think this is very harsh statement. I ride and have been rideing since i was 12 years old. My other half rides as well. We enjoy rideing when ever we can. We work, we own homes, we have families. We are not violent nor do we do drugs. I have loud pipes on my bike but if it wasnt for them, I would have been dead a long time ago. Loud pipes saves lives! We are not all that bad like Mr. D. Woods!

Why do you defend this guy, have you read the transcripts of the case? Where you in the courtroom during the trial? Justice is finally getting done for these women, and idiots like you have the audacity to defend him. The only complain should be that we are sorry he is going to die so humanly, they should torture him first. Its funny how you extreme liberals who appose the death penalty, support PETA and get upset if someone even swats a fly, are the same ones that support abortion and killing babies. Someone has their priorities all mixed up. Itís probably all that inbreeding going on in your parts, get off your sister and get some common sence!

I am trying to work myself into some kind of fit of compassion for this dried up clod of feces, but I just can't get there. I can say that it is a shame that it all has to take so long.

I was attending Parkland High School back in 1987. My heart goes out to all of the families of the victims. I pray that this can bring closure to everyone affected.
I am not sure how I feel about the death penalty, but I remember how scared everyone was back when all the girls were disappearing, and then all of the bodies being discovered. I remember the tears at PHS when they announced Dawn's death over the intercom.
It was like a living nightmare.
No man should ever be able to hold the entire female population of a city hostage through terror. I hope we have learned from this, and will not allow dangerous sexual predators to be paroled so easily.

to all that feel pity or outrage for mr wood and his upcoming execution i was 17 yrs old when mr woods was preying on all the girls in notheast i crossed path with mr wood at that time and was asked out by mr wood on several occasions, asked to meet him in different locations but i never accepted his invitations i never hung out at the hotels or bars he went to but he saw me at a cirle k near my school that i stopped by on way home every day and there he would be and would speak to me and try to get me to go party with him but i never did i feel that i was spared by the grace of god and now being married for 21 yrs and having 2 children(a son 17yrs old and a daughter 15 yrs old) i know how truly blessed i am to be able to have that when the victims will never have the joy of a marriage or children i no longer live in el paso but my mother and sisters do and when they let me know he was being executed i have had mixed feelings i have been crying alot and there is a sense of relief and of closure that after aug, 20 he will be gone and i never have to wonder if he will ever truly pay for what he has done to his victims and el paso and the lucky ones who got away he is the reason i left el paso at 18 and i hate to admitt that but i was scared of how close i came to pure evil
