    Disregard of human life and fat jokes. All we need is partisanship for the trifecta.

    Doctor: Veins Of Obese Ohio Inmate Inaccessible
    COLUMBUS, Ohio — A condemned killer fighting his execution because of his extreme weight does not have accessible veins in his arms or hands and could not receive a lethal injection in his legs because he is so obese, a doctor said in a court filing.

    Death row inmate Ronald Post wants a federal judge to stop his January execution on the grounds his weight could cause him to suffer severe pain during the procedure. The state opposes the request.

    hanging the obese actually tends to result in decapitation.

    Hell, as big as he is he’ll probly be dead of heart failure before the appeals and legal wrangling for this execution are finished. Would cost less taxpayer money to just let that happen in due course. Lawyers are even more expensive than modest but reasonably humane prison medical care.

    If cost is the primary factor, a 12 gauge slug to the back of the head would get the job done for about $1.

    of course, I know you realize that method would lead to a whole new set of legal appeals and so forth. That $1 shell could very well end up costing more than 20 years of prison + diabeetus care.

    ethical considerations of capital punishment aside (as other folks have covered them and I feel no need to rehash), its not ever going to be a cheap and easy process. Nor should it be.

    On the other hand there’s a certain appeal in letting someone rot to death in prison. Talk about cruel.

    and of course taking the death penalty off the table puts them back in general population.

    Eh. Not really cruel enough, when you think about it.

    The main reasoning against capital punishment is we can not trust the state to get it right 100% of the time. It follows then that irreversible actions of the state must be constrained.

    Of course, I’d still like to see him die.

    Gonna address that in two parts:

    1. When you make a mistake with a convicted prisoner who’s still alive, you can fix it regardless of how hard his time has been.

    2. You’d like to see him die?

    1. It’s more about not believing that the state is competent, but that’s true also.

    2. Yes. Capital punishment is very, very satisfying.
