Is this guy making four trips through the chow line each time? Or was he this farking big at the time they arrested him? Didn't think you could get that big of just prison food, goddamn.

Bullshiat. A good big bullet through your fat-assed brain will do just fine. fark you, fatty.

Calculate the amount of compound needed to kill a 100lb person through lethal injection and then multiply that number by 5.

I'm anti-death penalty, but that doesn't mean I'm pro-stupid excuses.

Is lethal injection the only method allowed for capital punishment in OH? I would hope that hanging would be an option (instant death by breaking ones neck).

If I were ever given capital punishment I would want to have a firing squad.

Death by hanging doesn't alway go right. If the rope has stretched because of past usage or is too long the person slowly strangles to death. Happened to convicted murderer Westley Allan Dodd (rope was too long).

I don't know why that isn't the preferred method. BAM. Done. But nothing is as messed up as the electric chair. That's some medieval shiat right there. Well you know, if they had electricity in medieval times.

ALL fat people should be executed! Just think of all the room we'd have.

How does a person maintain that kind of weight in prison? I'd think that if there were one environment in which calories and portions could be rigorously controlled it would be on death row.

There are also reports of people who were this guy's size where their head was torn off due to the fall. It would certainly be an instantaneous death, but nothing I'd want to witness.

I think that might not work with this guy: No neck. Though at 480lbs all they probably have do is have a guard turn off his CPAP machine in the middle of the night.

Prison officials and the object of the exercise should watch the video "Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman". (2005).

wonder what his last meal would be. he'd probably order so much food he'd be eating for a week before they had a chance to kill him.

I saw this episode of Nip/Tuck.

serious physical and psychological pain, involving a "torturous and lingering death"

Um, isn't that kinda the point?

Now every criminal would try to be super fat.
 
2012-09-18 06:40:51 AM
This is easy....just grant him his last meal request....will probably die of heart failure afterwards

Uh, no. That went out of vogue in the 17th century. The whole reason for execution is to remove a heinous individual from society, who has no hope of rehabilitation or repentance.

The only problem is, it costs a shiatload more than imprisoning them, and our system is immensely biased in terms of socioeconomic disparity and race when handing out death sentences.

And I would chose 'snu-snu'.

He can't be hanged, his head would come off. Being a big fat-ass, unable to walk etc isn't he in a 'torturous and lingering life'?
 
2012-09-18 06:41:43 AM
Can't they just mash up a shiatload of sleeping pills into his last meal? He'll just think the gravy is extra lumpy.
 
2012-09-18 06:41:50 AM
I'm fine with any goofy excuse people can come up with in order to be spared a death sentence.

Best of luck, fatty.

Hrm. How to properly execute a hyper-obese man on death row?

... hrm. He's entitled to a last dinner, right? Put it on the top floor of a skyscraper and make him use the stairs. Problem solved, and you save the tax payers money, too.

FTFY. Normally I'm not much of a stickler, but I'm very anti-death penalty.

In medieval times, the electric chair wouldn't have had electricity. Instead there would have been a crank that pushed a serrated iron cone up your anus until you died. I'm opposed to the death penalty but let's keep some perspective about how "barbaric" its implementation is these days.

Dead man waddlin'.

soupafi: / pro death penalty


Yeah, tell that to all the people on death row who were exonerated with DNA evidence. Better yet, tell it to the innocent ones who were executed. Oh you can't, they're dead. Personally I'd rather be executed than spend life in prison but if any innocent people at all are being executed then we shouldn't be doing it at all.

Having said that, just shoot the fat fark. If we have to have a death penalty, I don't see the purpose of turning it into some ritual.

The last guy they executed by firing squad was a mess, blood everywhere and the janitors refused to have anything to do with it.

He broke the law. He doesn't get to use it anymore.
 
2012-09-18 06:51:18 AM
Death penalty is stupid, even in the case of this fat guy who doesn't seem to be protesting he's innocent.
 
2012-09-18 06:51:51 AM

Bathia_Mapes: is too long


Once again, you're so kind.

What ACTUALLY happens when you use a too long rope is not strangulation. What happens is the drop's too far and the rope pulls their head clean off. Well, not CLEAN but definitely off.

No Such Agency: I'm opposed to the death penalty but let's keep some perspective about how "barbaric" its implementation is these days.


Strapping someone to a chair and shooting electricity through them until they melt or catch fire is pretty barbaric, not to mention inefficient. I realize I'm grading on a curve compared to other countries and times but still it's farked up.

A shotgun with a slug, pressed up against the base of his skull would be quick and painless.

Ronald Post, who shot and killed a hotel clerk in northern Ohio almost 30 years ago

What's wrong with this picture? The guy killed someone when he was age 23, we keep him locked up for 3 decades, then we kill him when his heart is probably about to give out anyway.

I'm not saying we should have killed him sooner. We just should make it life in prison and call it even.

Or release him now on "humanitarian" grounds. He's not mobile enough to hurt anybody, and the taxpayers won't have to fund his care anymore.

Oh, wait: Obamacare. Damn that murderer-loving socialist.

Maybe you should have thought about that before killing someone in cold blood, you farking dickbag.
