the last one gasped for breath for 24 minutes? too bad. as one ohio official put it, they are not guaranteed a painless death. and they shouldn't be. he raped and killed a late term pregnant woman. imagine how she suffered knowing that not just she was being killed but also her baby. I wish he could have suffered longer. injection too painful? I hear hangings quick. or the guillotine. how bout a firing squad? I have no pity. and there's still one from warren that I hope a little boys mother lives to see him put to death!

I think it's great he suffered. What Kasich should do now is give all the hardened criminals a piece of rope with a noose and a small table to stand on. Maybe they will commit suicide early and then they won't have to suffer 20 years later with an injection. Hell, give them a magic marker so they could write "Brooks Was Here" before they jump off the table. Look at all the money the taxpayers could save if criminals commit suicide. We could buy more busses or build more libraries.

Ohio should be more like Texas, put in a fast lane if you have been sentenced to death. 24 minutes is probably shorter than the nightmare the woman killed was put through! let them pick the way they want to die, hanging, lethal injection etc. Kasik should take some advice from the best sheriff in the country Sheriff Arapio of Phoenix, it would save Ohio taxpayers allot of money!

While the theory of "lex talonis" was valid, for Christians, the WORDS of Jesus Christ are over-riding. "If a man slaps you, offer him the other cheek". The death penalty is no deterrent but it is one hell of of f****ing punishment. M

The biggest wrong in this is that this killers family will probably sue the state and get a settlement. They sat on tv crying about watching their father die. They should be made to look at photos from the coroners autopsy of the women he slaughtered. I'm sure she suffered and gasped while being raped and stabbed.

Increasing State sponsored Murder exponentially won't deter future crimes and will only increase the number of innocents who are wrongly executed.

We can't say if the death penalty deters crime. Most inmates on death row will die of old age, heart trouble, or cancer, not execution. If every one that killed some body thought they would be put to death within 6 months, maybe they would think twice. As of now, they look at it as life in prison even if sentenced to death. That does not take into account the ones are sentenced to life or 10-20. Prison simply does not matter to some.

@ Lt Mac :
Gotta agree with your post...too much chance of innocents dying.

I say if a person is arrested for a heinous crime and there is no doubt of guilt, depending on the crime, they should be excuted within 72 hours. when there are eyewitnesses and no doubt of guilt! I'm sick and tired of these monsters languiching on death row for 30 years while receiving better healthcare and food than millions of good americans get. when one of these subhumans gets the death penalty most of us will die before they do. I say, no doubt, 72 hours and save millions of taxpayer dollars. no doubt, no trial.
