Apparently he's on a drug that could diminish the effect of thiopental, the drug used to put him to sleep before he's executed. He's worried he could go thru excruciating pain. Poor baby! What about the two students he raped and murdered. I say drag him out behind the shed and put a bullit in his head. I'm sorry, I have no sympathy for people like this.

Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 1): I have another solution. Drum roll please. The electric chair is your friend for this mission.
No you don't..
For your information the electric chair is not a option in Ohio. On November 15, 2001, Governor Bob Taft signed House Bill 362 eliminating the electric chair as a form of execution. The only method of execution in Ohio is lethal injection.
And on top of that Ohio has dismantled their old electric chair eight years ago. From an Ohio DOC website: On February 26, 2002, Ohio’s electric chair, nicknamed "Old Sparky," was decommissioned and disconnected from service.
Besides at this guys height and weight be might not fit into the chair.

I think it is the prison's responsibility to get him on a diet and workout regimen so that he is in tip top shape for his execution. Let's face it, execution can be a stressful process and the better shape you are in the better you will be to handle it.
I would recommend a good cardio program. Get that heart pumping so that the poison will flow quickly to vital body parts. Weight training would also be a good supliment to the cardio program. You need to get those big muscles with the bulging veins. This assures accurate needle placement.

Quoting OB1504 (Reply 3): Doesn't the prison have exercise facilities and whatnot?
The growing trend in this country is that death row inmate are locked in single person cells for 24 hours a day, with perhaps 3 hours a week for exercise and shower etc. I should add, the exercise area is a basically a small pen that is able to hold one person.
In my county as soon as the judge signs the paperwork, the inmate is put in a vehicle and transported to the state pen in Florence, Arizona.

The Russians had less problems with this issue:
One corner in a prison court yard with a stack of sandbags, two guard to hold the prisoner in a kneeling position, one guard with a pistol and one bullet.
Totally agree. He doesn't want to have ouchies for a few seconds while he dies? Poor thing, maybe he should have thought about that as he raped and then murdered the girls. Even worse is that his case has gotten this far. He should be given only the minimal amounts to survive and then once at a sufficient weight, stick him. Rather, have the executioner prod around first and miss the vein a few times, then get it right.

Just increase the drug dosage before the actual execution and that's it. If the guy is concerned about feeling pain while getting executed, he should have never commited a capital crime in the first place.

Maybe they could make him excercise to death and be a little slow with the EMT's. With his fattness, and the junk prison food is, his heart may not last long. It would sure save the state money and probably get him dead sooner than the execution process.

Let's get him off the drug. I can't imagine it is critical to his short term survival, and the long term does not exist in his case. Problem solved as long as I'm aware. Blood levels of the medicine would be negligent in a matter of days or week at most.
Quoting AirCop (Reply 10): If anyone here ever have the opportunity to visit death row in your state..do it, you'll gain some real insight.
This I can agree with. While I have not been, my high school held a weeklong ethics forum every year, and once was on the death penalty. Brought in law enforcement, lawyers, politicians, victim's families, clergy, activists, professors, you name it. The only real answer to the debate is that there isn't a simple or categorically right one.
I'm completely against the death penalty anyway. Too many convicts are proven to be innocent. And to me, if one person is wrongfully executed, the whole death penalty should be abolished. Life in prison is severe punishment enough.
And don't forget, life in prison is actually less expensive than the death penalty too. This has been proven in various studies. Another reason to be against it.

Being in Ohio this is getting a fair amount of coverage. I say he should go for his crimes and go quickly. If he does actually feel something then all the better for the families of the murdered girls.

Wasn't there a prisoner back a few years ago, due to his extensive drug use/ shooting up, his veins were deemed unsuitable for injection, so they had to install ports just before his execution? I want to say it was in Florida......
Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....
