I just hope they don't void his conviction like they do some convicts that die before appeals and/or term of sentence run out.

He should have dropped his pants and lubed up front and back before he did it. Just to make them wonder.

He was within hours of beginning the standard 72-hour, pre-execution suicide watch, which is not a successful one-size-fits-all policy as it turns out.

Prisoners have limited options when it comes to a little variety or "entertainment." Have you heard what kinds of drugs prisoners abuse? They'll get themselves on anti-psychotics just for kicks. For those who don't know, anti-psychotics work by blocking the happy-chemicals in your brain, which cause psychosis if you have too many floating around. for a normal person, blocking those chemicals leads to a rough approximation of depression, and you get undesirable, and sometimes permanent, physical and mental side effects.  People who take anti-psychotics for a long time develop things like motor tremors and muscle tics, plus it screws with your cholesterol and blood sugar so you can get type II diabetes. Presumably, they get on these drugs so they can snooze and drool their way through the prison experience.

This to me is more proof that the death penalty is cruel and unusual.

Revenge in the moment is one thing. But the premeditated killing of a person so that the person knows the exact moment he will be killed and has to wait for it is another.

When I see those people who have gotten reprieves in the last hour and then finally are executed . . . think about the fact that multiple times they have faced the specter of their own death.

So my point is, even if you don't think the execution itself is immoral, what do you think about the premeditation of it? The waiting and the knowing?

I see you and I differ greatly. I think about the surviving family of the victims having to wait for justice to be done. Hoping that the governor is busy that night, that no electrical storms or heat waves, etc compromise the execution. That no ass hat lawyer finds a technicality. I feel very sorry for the family, and having to wait for the news that it is *finally* over.

I never thought about it from the death row persons side. And, I never will. I don't care much about their position or how it affects them. I want them dead. Dead murders can't be released or escape from prison by accident or idiocy.

However, the good news is we agree on something. I would very much agree with speedier sentences. Let the appeals start *immediately* and after due diligence is done just trot them out to chair and get it over with.

Could also make a rope in their cell standard equipment after a guilty sentencing. Add a ring mounted to the ceiling, too, so they can go their own way, ASAP. I never did understand why anyone would want to stop a murderer from committing suicide.

I doubt his terms included being thrown into prison just so he could enjoy the privilege of hanging himself.  Then again I could be wrong, maybe all the cool people are doing it.

40-year-old woman stabbed to death gets my sympathy.  POS that killed her, not so much.

Suicide is against the law.

Actually, I think the reasoning is the entire formal procedure of an execution is required for proper justice.  A suicide subverts justice.

Personally, I say give the condemned inmate a rope and selection of poison pills so they can go early if they so choose.

It's actually very funny you say that. I have panic disorder, OCD, and Tourette's. I also take a lot of medicine for those. And for both reasons I haven't driven in a long time, as in about a decade. And I've recently been pushed by family and friends and my doctor to start again. And I always tell people how incredibly dangerous it is. I daydream about cars that are like hovercrafts with big, wide buttresses of pillowy air-filled fabric. And roads with "bumpers." So that the worst thing that happens in a crash is something that looks like billiard balls bouncing off each other.

Can you imagine if we had a war on traffic deaths the way we've had a war on terrorism? 9/11 killed 3,000 people. Car accidents kill 40,000 people a year. I think the war is worth waging.

Anyhow, I do get your point, kind of . . . but I'm not sure it's the same thing. Driving is a tolerable risk for most people. It's a decision. Car accidents are not usually deliberate.

Is this the Sign of the Twines? He wanted to go out in Europe, not your rope.

Maybe in the event that the suicide was botched and now you have to deal with a mentally or physically disabled person, bit of a different game? I'm also sure there are lawyers willing to argue both side of the moral, legal, and practical aspects of prisoners being allowed to harm themselves regardless of sentence or outcome.

If it were me, I'd give the condemn the option of death by slot machine.  You put the noose around them, make them strand over the trap door, then they pull the lever.  If they win they get some reduction in their sentence. Else whoops the long drop.

Considering what you have to do get a death sentence in any state that isnt Texas, there is literally nothing that could be done to them that I would deem too cruel.  I'm just bummed that the family of the victim didnt get to see that POS snuffed out like a cigarette butt.

I have now gained a modicum of respect for the man.

"Well, it's not going to go my way. Prison sucks, and it's the only thing I'll ever see before I die. Might as well end it now."

He was proactive, and took a step to change his situation. shiat, that's more than I can say about myself.

Joseph Edward Duncan, III.  Death row.  Convicted of multiple murders.

He broke into the home of Brenda Groene and Mark Mackenzie, clubbed them and Brenda's teenage son, Slade, to death with a hammer, then kidnapped her other children, Shasta, 8, and Dylan, 9, taking them into the Idaho and Montana wilderness. For the next 7 weeks or so, he filmed himself torturing Dylan by hanging him by his wrists to trees, stripping him naked, punching and kicking him all over, especially his genitals, burning him with cigarettes, all while shouting at him that, "God is nowhere listening, Dylan! I am the Devil!"

He finally shot Dylan dead, after raping him multiple times over the course of those 7 weeks, during which time he raped and beat Shasta, also.

I am completely OK with people like this facing capital punishment.

I've never understood that, to be honest.  Why put a suicide watch on them, if you're just going to kill them anyway?  Is the state afraid the prisoner will deprive them of the pleasure?
