    'Obese' Inmate Dies Of Lethal Injection

    http://www.newsnet5.com/news/17706512/detail.html



    LUCASVILLE, Ohio -- Ohio has executed a 5-foot-7, 267-pound double murderer who argued he was too fat to die humanely by lethal injection.


    Richard Cooey died at 10:28 a.m. Tuesday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.
    When asked if he had any last words, he said, "You (expletive) haven't paid any attention to what I've had to say over the past 22½ years. Why are you going to pay attention to what I have to say now?"
    There were no immediate reports of problems finding suitable veins to deliver the deadly chemicals.

    His attorneys had argued that his weight problem could make it difficult for prison staff to access a vein. A prisons spokeswoman said earlier that Cooey received a pre-execution exam and was cleared.
    Cooey was the first inmate executed in Ohio in more than a year, and the first since the end of an unofficial national moratorium on executions that began last year while the U.S. Supreme Court reviewed Kentucky's lethal injection procedure.
    The 41-year-old Cooey killed two University of Akron students in 1986.
    Cooey and a co-defendant were convicted of killing two female students from the University of Akron after disabling their car with a chunk of concrete thrown from an overpass and then offering to help them.
    Prosecutors said the women were taken to a secluded spot where they were sexually assaulted, stabbed and bludgeoned, and had the letter "X" carved into their stomachs.
    Cooey was a 19-year-old soldier on leave from the U.S. Army at the time. His co-defendant, Clinton Dickens, was 17 and was sentenced to life in prison because of his age.
    The last Ohio inmate to be executed was Christopher Newton -- who was similar in size to Cooey -- in May 2007. The execution team had trouble putting IVs in his arm, delaying his execution nearly two hours. There were similar problems in the execution of Joseph Clark in 2006.
    Cooey ordered a special meal Monday that included a T-bone steak with A-1 sauce, onion rings, french fries, four eggs over easy, toast with butter, hash browns, a pint of rocky road ice cream, a Mountain Dew soft drink and bear claw pastries, Carson said.

    The nerve of this POS to even consider the claim that the needle injection would be inhumane because of his size, he did not give the victims any consideration what so ever. I am sure he went straight to hell where he belonged!

    What alternative did he suggest? I would have settled for cutting his balls off and letting him bleed out.

    When asked if he had any last words, he said, "You (expletive) haven't paid any attention to what I've had to say over the past 22½ years. Why are you going to pay attention to what I have to say now?"
    Pardon me, Mr. Cooey, (if you can hear me from hell), but thanks to you, the families of Wendy Offredo and Dawn McCreery have had to cope with never hearing anything from them again. Oh, and how I can only imagine how deeply they yearn to hear the voices and laughter of the lost...

    Mr. Cooey, what makes you think that anything such an animal as you could have said could ever be of any value whatsoever?

    How horribly those two beautiful girls must have screamed while you and your accomplice, Clint Dickens, raped, brutalized, and then savagely silenced them. What possessed you to carve "X's" on their stomachs, by the way?

    Mr. Cooey, I have absolute and unshakable faith that there is an eternal agony for evil such as you, and a indescribable beauty, peace, love, and rest for those two who were your victims.

    You have been erased from the world of the living, finally. May you rot in your well-earned agony, and may your tormented, helpless screams be heard by only those who delight in them.

    Liberal judges and the right to appeal again and again, and yet again some more.

    Daniel Faulkner was murdered in 1981 by that no good piece of shit Wesley Cook (aka Mumia Abu Jamal). Cook has been on death row since his conviction and has filed more appeals than he should have been allowed.

    That mother effer needs to die NOW. I'm sick to death of Susan Sarandon and all the other Hollywood liberal idiots who have NO clue about the real story and have complete disrespect for the law for supporting the murderer.

    Our court system is a disgrace and it just blows my mind that judges just let people walk when rightfully they should be behind bars, as was the case with Sgt. Patrick Mcdonald of the PPD who was recently murdered by Daniel Giddings.

    If Giddings was still in prison where he belonged, Sgt. Mcdonald would be alive today. The only solace one can take in that situation is that Giddings will never take the life of another officer again. The fucker is taking a mighty long dirt nap and is burning in hell as I type.

    As for the fat prick in the story - he got what he deserved. I'm sorry it wasn't sooner though, and I'm sorry those young women were cheated out life. My heart goes out to their parents for what they have to endure for the rest of their lives.

    Rot in hell, you POS.

    With that kind of last meal, I'm surprised he didn't die from lethal gas

    AMEN, me too. We would be much better off without the Hollywood liberal idiots that spew their crap. Just because they're famous doesn't mean people need to listen to the Almighty God that they think they are.

    The 9th Jerk-it court of Schlemiels is the worst. All cop killers can rot in hell as far as I am concerned. Do you hear me, Mumia Abu Jamal?

    What gets me is how in the hell did he get so fat in the first place? I'm sure he wasn't that way at the time of his conviction since it says that he was a 19-year-old soldier on leave from the U.S. Army at the time. Prison meals should be just enough to sustain someone, not the damned all you can eat buffet?

    And Why in the Hell do we all need to know what he ate for his last meal? I am all for him having it but this isn't a grocery store advertisement. Um, maybe not. Someone posted that he needed a Slim-Fast.

    I read somewhere that the POS said he got fat in prison because he had little exercise. I don't recall if he was in solitary or not, but that may have been mentioned too.

    I'm not sure where I read it, but I do remember for sure that he said he gained all his weight on the inside.

    Bob , just what kind of liberal are you? I 'm beginning to think you are a compassionate conservative. In any case that was down right funny, brother.
