These cases take 15+ years to go from initial sentence to execution, why more delays?

Wouldn't it be more cost effective to hold several executions on the same day? All of the logistics involved in setting up an execution has to cost a lot of money, so why not be more efficient and have more than one on the same day? An execution only takes place after all appeals have been exhuasted anyway, so I don't understand the public defenders argument.

Marvallous Keene is a sociopathic coward. How dare he beg for more time. Where was his concern for time when he was gunning people down in the streets? Since May 6th, 2009, he has had more time than he gave any of his victims, to attempt to make ammends, tell his loved ones goodbye, and try to get right with his maker. Goodbye Marvallous, not only did you kill people for the hell of it, you dragged others into your madness, who now will die in prison, because of you evilness. May your cowardly soul burn in hell.

Don't give them drugs! Being spaced out makes it an easier way to go, unlike they did with their victims. I can do it for expenses without losing a bit of sleep, unlike these sensitive liberal sheep.

Spaced out? We can't get Leon, Liz, Debra, and Janet in the same day?
