480-Pound Killer: I'm Too Fat for Execution. REALLY?!

480-Pound Killer: I'm Too Fat for Execution   REPOST

Convicted Ohio killer Ronald Post wants a delay of execution because, he says, his scar tissue and 480 pounds of body mass would make lethal injection far too painful, the APreports. "There is a substantial risk that any attempt to execute him will result in serious physical and psychological pain to him, as well as an execution involving a torturous and lingering death," his lawyers said in a court filing. His lawyers even added that the 53-year-old is too big for an execution gurney.
No word from authorities yet, but 275-pound Ohio inmate Richard Wade Cooey made a similar argument in 2008 and was executed without comment. The year before, executioners spent two hours pushing IVs into 265-pound convict Christopher Newton, and later admitted his weight had an effect. In a 1994 case—this one in Washington state—400-pound inmate Mitchell Rupe argued that hanging him would be inhumane because of risk of decapitation; he was eventually sentenced to life in prison and died there in 2006.

This guy is an idiot, I mean really, He's to fat to be executed? My thought for this idiot of a man, DON'T KILL PEOPLE AND YOU WON'T BE EXECUTED MORON!!!! People are not to bright these days and this man was just pure evil for killing someone in the first place, he deserves to die!! Tonya D (me)
