    McGuire, 53, of Preble County in western Ohio, was sentenced to death for killing Joy Stewart in 1989 after meeting her while working on her friend's house. Investigators say McGuire raped and choked the 22-year-old Stewart and stabbed her in the neck and shoulder. The newly married Stewart was about eight months pregnant.

    I don't think people like that deserve to be given drugs at their execution. Stabbing him up arse to death would be much more appropriate.

    We are dealing with state sanctioned serial killers that kill people as their everyday job and you honestly think these people aren't messed up in the head?

We have made it less personal by using machines or drugs today, but I commend anyone who has the fortitude and mental attitude to accomplish what needs to be done!

    Good morning, CJ.

    Greetings All.

    This is why it was customary for the condemned person to tip the headsman. The money was intended to encourage a quick, smooth, single stroke execution.

    Yes, I honestly think these people aren't messed up in the head. The person who equates this job with being a serial killer is the one that I have more concerns about.

    There is no real difference between killing people with the approval of the state and killing them outside of such approval. These individuals aren't acting in self defense, but doing a job that they were hired to do by the state. Hell, they are contract killers.

    They go out of their way to acquire the job. It's not like they're forced into it like they are drafted by the goddamn military or something. They have to make a conscious decision that this is the job they want and everyday they have the choice to walk away, but instead they come back day after day and might very well do the job until retirement. It's like Dexter, but without killing them with a knife,cutting them into pieces, and putting the parts into black bags. Hell, it's even for the same twisted ass reason.
