Man Up and Step Up

Lawyers for a US man on death row say they will try to halt a second attempt at his execution by lethal injection.

On Tuesday the execution of Romell Broom was called off and delayed for a week after Ohio state officials failed to find a vein.

Lawyer Tim Sweeney said Broom had "sustained both physical and mental injuries" during the attempt. Witnesses said he had been distressed and appeared to cry.

He told his lawyers he had been pricked by the needle up to 18 times, the Associated Press news agency reports.

All seems quite harsh.. Until you read this bit..

Romell Broom has been sentenced to die for the rape and murder of 14-year-old Tryna Middleton in 1984.

Twat should quit his whining and shuttle off this mortal coil.

It's a lesson in the consequences of pretending that an execution is some kind of medical procedure. They could hang him, shoot him, gas him or fry him with far less bother and it would probably be considerably less distressing for the condemned man and the other people taking part.

Probably a fault in my personality but actually I don't really care how 'distressing' it is for the condemned man.

I believe Utah shoots prisoners on death row. That would probably do for him.



I'm not sure if any state is using ol' Smoky these days (New York used to have one in Sing Sing prison) but there's a lot to be said for zapping him too.

They'd probably miss with that as well. Hanging is good value for money, after all multiple hangings can be had with a piece of hemp rope and as it is biodegradeable it is a green way of disposing of the bastards.

Do you offer an "all of the above" option?

I believe that was a one off in the case of the murderer Gary Gilmour who had to take the state to court to demand his right to execution by firing squad. I could be wrong but other US states have the firing squad option as well.
