I think he also raped her in every way possible.

To think, someone like this probably has hoards of people protesting his punishment.

It was not botched, he is dead. I think they waste too much time with needles, a injection of 230 grains of lead behind the ear and it is lights out at 700+ feet per second

Americans want to kill criminals but want to do it non violently, very odd. Thus our use of cockamamie and complicated killing methods such as electrocution and poisoning by gas or chemicals rather than simple beheading, hanging or gunshot. Very hypocritical.

Hard to really care about the punishment of a person like this.

I still can't say I'm completely in favor of the death penalty because of the possibility of incorrect convictions. Even 1 false death is far too much to risk.

At the same time, if a person killed anyone in my family I would probably want him to be executed.

My reply to this is who cares? Did he care when he shot that girl and buried her alive?

I'm just sorry the next POS who raped and killed an innocent 11 month old baby couldn't be executed right after him.
He died right? How's that considered botched?

I agree with you, a 5.56 bullet to the back of the head might be a better way. It isn't about two wrongs making a right it's about putting down a sick animal. If a dog has rabies and bites someone they put them down right ?

I have zero sympathy for this animal...and with a little luck he had a chance to think about what he did that put himself there just before he succumbed to the heart attack. The end result was successful.. one bad animal put down.

I also don't understand the complication. Anesthetics is a known science--what's the problem there? Why are they using all these cockamamie concoctions?

Agreed. Public execution would deter more would-be criminals. Animals like this don't deserve dignity.

Speaking for myself, a murderer rapist, good-bye. I wish they gave him life and let him mingle with the general population.

My main issue with the death penalty is The U.S Justice System is flawed. A person can "buy" justice. Just my opinion.

If I actually supported capital punishment I wouldn't care about it either...
