BIROS UPDATE: Biros apologized, thanked friends before execution

Published: Tue, December 8, 2009 @ 12:10 p.m.

LUCASVILLE — Convicted Trumbull County murderer Kenneth Biros apologized and thanked his family and friends for their support and prayers before being executed at 11:47 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility.

But Biros did not look at the family members of the woman he murdered in 1991 as he lay dying on in the execution chamber.

"I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart," he said shortly before the lethal injection was administered. He added, "I get to spend the holidays with my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Peace to you all. Amen."

The process took about 45 minutes, with prison staff taking about 30 minutes to establish one intravenous shunt.

If alcohol hadn't numbed his reasoning years ago all this would never had transpired . Drugs and alcohol do indeed have a disasterous effect on society .

ImUrPO :

Alcoholics tend to things under the influence that they wouldn't do when they were sober . Drugs and alcohol destroy society one person at a time . On execution day I'm sure that Biros wished that he had never committed the crime that was now going to cause his death .

In time alcohol will have an effect on your mental health . Take drugs with alcohol and the effect will be enhanced . It is a known fact that the brain of an alcoholic and or drug addict is compromised . I am not finding excuses for the behavior of drunks and addicts as it was their choice to consume the drugs and alcohol . Thus they are responsible for their crimes .

70 per cent of all incarcerated inmates in the USA were under the influence of alcohol when they committed their crimes!!!! And like I said on another blog, the Engstroms own a bar.and have contributed to these statistics, If a drunken Biros would have driven his vehicle over a cliff and it burst into flames and somehow Biros would have survived(ala Ted Kennedy) the Engstroms would forgive Biros no questions asked. Why? Because they are enablers to the criminal element(Booze and Drugs) that is ruining are country!!!! The Engstroms are hypocrites plain and simple.Count the number of drunken driving fatalities on Route #11(Masury/Brookfield) many who have been served an excessive amount of booze by money grubbing (BAR OWNERS), Where are the Mothers Against Drunken Drivers(MADD) Marie Fife who fought for the Biros execution,yet she stands with Bar owners who fill these potential killers with booze! Come on man!
