Brothers display emotions at Ohio's latest execution



Published: Fri, March 11, 2011 @ 4:46 a.m.

LUCASVILLE

With one brother pounding a wall in the witness room a few feet away and another vowing to clear his name, Johnnie Baston became the first inmate in the nation put to death with a single dose of a barbiturate previously unused in Ohio’s lethal injections.

Otherwise, the execution at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville on Thursday took place without complication, with Baston succumbing to a lethal dose of Pentobarbital, a drug commonly used to induce coma in surgery patients and to euthanize pets.

“I hope my execution that it will be the last,” Baston said moments before he closed his eyes for the last time. “The victims in my case didn’t want me to be executed. They wanted life without parole. That should have been respected; that should have been respected by our governor."

"“I hope my execution that it will be the last,” Baston said moments before he closed his eyes for the last time. "

It will be Johnnie ! Either when the slaughter of innocent victims stops or the liberals sanction killing in Ohio . Since you killed and were rewarded with death the courts seen that you were not the victim . If killing another was good for you then being executed was even better for society . We are tired of satanistic souls doing what they please .

Killing your attacker is always good but not always feasible . Society must then step in to serve justice .

Well another useless animal in Hell.

"They wanted life without parole. That should have been respected; that should have been respected by our governor."

Well this animal should have respected Chong Hoon Mah who had to DIE for no reason whatsoever!
