    Man too fat to execute..

    This from Propeller...http://www.propeller.com/story/2008/...225x1200544807

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- A double murderer scheduled to be executed next month in Ohio said Tuesday he has not deliberately gained weight to rule out his death by lethal injection.

    Richard Cooey said in a death row interview that his execution cannot be carried out humanely under current state procedures because his veins are hard to reach.

    "Vein access was an issue even when I was back in the service," Cooey, 41, said in an hour-long interview with the Associated Press at the Ohio State Penitentiary.

    Cooey, 5-foot, 7 inches tall and 267 pounds, said he has gained perhaps 70 pounds while being locked up for raping and killing two University of Akron students 22 years ago while he was on leave from the U.S. Army. He blamed the weight gain on medication and lack of exercise.

    "It's hard getting access to my veins," said Cooey, who was handcuffed and locked in a closet-sized visiting room. He spoke through a straw-sized slit in a reinforced glass partition.

    Well if they wouldn't wait 20+ years to get these executions done, this wouldn't be a problem then! Think people!

    Hmm, for raping and killing two University of Akron students 22 years ago. That's quite a few years back...regardless of how many years it was, he deprived these 2 college kids of a life they will never live and have missed out on graduations, a career, marriage, children, vacation time, Christmas and other holidays, retirement, enjoyment with grandkids and happiness...I would recommend slitting the lardbutt's throat with a rusty dull knife.

    The murderer said something along the lines of, "put a .45 to my head and pull the trigger," probably knowing full well that it ain't legal to do so....

    Probably so but the thought was nice.
