Don’t Hold Your Breath…

Marko and Tam both had a post this morning about a miscreant who is too fat to be executed(?).
This particular scumbag now resides on death row in Ohio.

Accordingly, the title of this post.

My Grandfather was murdered in East Cleveland in July of 1986.

The perpetrator of this crime forcibly entered my GF’s house, bound him to a chair with a cord, looted the place, doused him in lamp oil, & set him afire. The perp then stole the GF’s car, & drove it until he was identified. The GF lived for a couple more days- he was 84 years old.

The perp was tried in 1987, found guilty, & sentenced to death for his crime(s).

In 2002 he was scheduled for execution, but someone thought up a dodge in that it would be cruel to terminate someone who was mentally "deficient". Some tests were done, & it was found this particular scumbag had the intellect of a grapefruit (this would be a surprise to who?).

He’s still on death row, & will probably remain there for the rest of his natural days.
Requests (to proceed) to then governor Taft have been ignored.

So, like I said, don’t hold your breath waiting for justice…
