Too fat to die?

You may know about that very fat prisoner on death row in Ohio. He weighs almost 5-hundred pounds. His attorneys are trying to delay further his execution for a murder that happened more than a quarter of a century ago. In their petition to the court, his defenders claim that 53-year-old Ronald Post is too fat for lethal injection..that it would cause their client a “tortuous and lingering death”. Post already has lingered 27 years after murdering a hotel desk clerk in 1985.

    The real tragedy here is that he has been on death row for 27 years. Justice may be sure & certain but in no way speedy. I doubt he weighed that much 27 years ago and probably a million or more dollars to keep him alive so we could execute him. Go figure
