Do any of you people know the person that was killed? I think everyone in favor of capital punishment should witness it in person.
Is that Ok with everyone? I will get the bus and pick each of you up so we can go to the viewing chamber. Who is in? Im serious. I will have a cooler of beers and we can make a party out of it.
We can set out a cheer when they put the needle in his vein. Give me a K I L L em. We can watch his eyes roll back in his head as the drugs take hold and as his bladder releases and he pisses himself we will know he is just seconds away from an eternity of hell. Oh yea baby lets kill some more worthless skin off. Im ready, hell lets just kill em all on pay per view. If we hung em we could get a rope sponsorship. We can get the drug companys to sponsor the "Friday Night Killins"

I've watched people be murdered (don't ask) and it is a hard scene to stomach and fathom. However, if someone commits an atrocious crime and there is absolutely no doubt he or she committed the crime and are deemed a permanent menace to society, I have no problem with execution.
I think in this case it has less to do with sparing this man's life and more to do with making sure the justice system is fair, regardless of what crime this man committed. One of the things that makes this country great is a person's ability to rely on a supposedly fair and balanced judicial system (although that is not always the case). No matter what we think of him personally, the judicial system is not supposed to have judgement when it comes to preserving the rights of a human being. Furthermore, if this man isn't executed in the exact manner in which the protocol demands, it only makes room for more and more people on death row to raise a stink when it comes their time. This really isn't about a liberal attitude of saving his life...but more making sure his life is taken in a humane (which the law provides no matter how we feel about it) and precise manner.

With that said, I hope the appeals are denied and he is executed. Terrible what he did to those people.

If lethal injection is declared unconstitutional in Ohio, then the state returns to using electrocution by the electric chair. Perhaps these criminals would rather be cooked alive or fried while alive? They should take the needle over electric chair because then they could fall asleep instead of waiting for the deadly jolt to hit them.
Oh That'll never happen have you read the stories of botched electrocutions? Hair catching on fire ect..Bring back the rope and firing squads.

Judge Frost is a liberal activist loon.
I sat on a civil case he adjudicated. He was truly disappointed when we ended up in a hung jury, because he wanted the plaintiff to collect cash $$$. I was the lone hold out in a 8-1 decision. When they came back and re-tried the case, the result was 9-0 against the plaintiff (I was vindicated). I can only imagine how **** Frost was that time around....
He seems to forget his job is to insure that justice is served. Very dissappointing.
Way to hold firm. Glad to see someone does.
