The question is, "Will the Blaze cover it?"

I'm not saying that he was brutally gang raped by AIDS-ridden gang members for months on end before being executed, but if it did happen, we have the right to know.

"If I hadn't raped you, you wouldn't have lived," he told Newman's fiancee, Connie Hilton, in the moments before the single lethal dose of pentobarbital was administered. "I didn't kill Mr. Newman and I didn't rob your house.
"I was just there. ... I'm sorry for what you've gone through. It wasn't me that harmed and stole all of your stuff," he said to Hilton, who stood behind a glass window a few feet away. The Associated Press normally does not name rape victims, but Hilton, 63, agreed to be identified.
Lewis said the two people responsible for Newman's killing are still alive. He didn't identify them.


Glenn Beck sounds insane.

They've gone away from giving the traditional three drug cocktails, and are now just giving one big-ass dose of anesthetic agent.

Thank goodness such a concerned citizen was there to rape that woman before she could be killed. Really, thank you, Jesus, for giving that man the erection he needed to save a life. You really don't see selfless acts like that anymore.

- GWB is from Texas.
- They're massively conservative and pro gun.
- They somehow have the ability to dictate education standards to the rest of the country, and like to use that to further creationist world views (and presumably other evangelical quackery).
- The perception is that they're second only to Florida for being a source general stupidity and craziness.  Usually with a strong redneck flavor.
- You've probably heard of Rick Perry.

I've not had coffee so I'm too lazy to go look it up, but wasn't the reason that one of the drugs was in short supply in the US and/or because the manufacturer of it wouldn't sell for executions?

It's an execution. I fail to see anything humane about it.

Exactly,  everything must live and be treated with dignity in perpetuity no matter how much pain and suffering it has or causes onto others.

Seriously though:  The guy all but begged to be executed in his final statements.

Yup. It's made in Europe and Europe does not allow the export of materials for murder.

My first thought was, "Yay!" cuz I really hate Glenn Beck.

Then I read the story. Damn...that is hideous. And the other two rapists are still on the loose. One down, two to go. I hope they find them and fry, or well, knock them out then suffocate them too.

The5thElement: It's an execution. I fail to see anything humane about it.


I look at it like putting a rabid/ill dog down.  At the point you're executing somebody, you don't want to make it any more painful than it has to be.

The old 3 drug cocktail was suboptimal.  One possibility was that you'd still be awake as the other two chemicals paralyzed you(so you can't signal your distress), and the other stopped your heart, causing intense pain.  There are a few death penalty advocates who stated this was deliberate - they'd oppose switching to a less painful(theoretically) solution.

The new drug -sodium pentobarbital is the same drug that loving pet owners have vets use to put down their terminally ill animals.  It's also used by patients wishing to commit assisted suicide.

Personally, I'd rather go with nitrogen asphyxiation, because with that you don't even need to put a needle in their arm.
