    The fact that the guy was executed is not really what is important. If the execution had been stayed a week so they could use the electric chair instead of lethal injection, justice would be served. The problem is when a judge decided not to do her job during a time of critical importance.

    Once again you apparently did not comprehend the facts in this case; the Supreme Court ruled in favor of them using lethal injection. You cannot appeal the freaking Supreme Court now can you?

    In addition, and much like Coronado, you also failed to comprehend that ALL their appeals had been overturned he had even been RE-TRIED for the original crime and all this is about the absurd asinine assertions of Liberals who will always be quick to defend thugs despots and criminals over law abiding citizens.

    There are NO facts to support Coronado’s or your emotional hysterics in a vacuum of the facts in this case.

    P.S. The efforts by the idiots trying to impeach this judge will amount to NADA just as the same attempts made to impugn Bush, Cheney and Tom DeLay.

    One scumbag dead, we saved money, now we're wasting that on a goofball trial.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    As far the facts, the article says the court had just taken the case, so at the time it hadn't been decided. However, its irrelevant because you are entirely missing my point. The fact he was executed is not important, as that was the likely outcome anyways. The point is that the judge wasn't doing her job.


    In addition, and much like Coronado, you also failed to comprehend that ALL their appeals had been overturned he had even been RE-TRIED for the original crime and all this is about the absurd asinine assertions of Liberals who will always be quick to defend thugs despots and criminals over law abiding citizens.
    I stated point blank that I don't mind the verdict. That doesn't excuse the judges actions.

    Except the other judges testimony.

    P.S. The efforts by the idiots trying to impeach this judge will amount to NADA just as the same attempts made to impugn Bush, Cheney and Tom DeLay.
    How is that relevant at all?

    I can understand why people have a problem with the way this judge went about it, but it's worth keeping the following in mind:

    1) The inmate's attorneys had all day to get their papers in to the proper place. They failed to do so. Their actions in this case reek more of guilt than they do of righteous outrage.

    2) The inmate would have been executed either way.

    That being said, it sounds like the judge made a conscious decision to not bend the rules based on the type of case that was being appealed. That's a little problematic.

    You're surprised that a judge would take issue with that comment?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Carry on, consider your insult reported.
    I said your opinion is ignorant, not you. Stop whining.

    Now, go research the appellate process and remedy that situation.

    P.S. Now that I know what his crime involved, I really don't care, as terrible as that sounds. He deserved to die, IMHO.

    The crime Richard committed is essentially irrelevant. The argument is (or should be if certain demagogues would sit down and shut up) whether due process was followed.
