    Saved the state some money on execution drugs, anyway.

    Not a death-penalty supporter, as I've made clear, but if anyone ever deserved it ...


    Rest in something nowhere near peace, you miserable bastard.

    Too bad somebody didn't shank him in prison.

    I'm kind of thinking someone did shank him.

    From the third graf:

    A source close to the case told CNN that Couey's death was not unexpected and he had been ill for some time.

    I'm sure if he was shanked in prison that information would readily be made available.

    There's not enough. I lived in that county and that case was just so awful.

    Crank up the ACDC, because another man's on a Highway to Hell.

    I'm not sure there's a punishment that could fit this crime. I guess he's finding out right about now, though.

    I wonder how many people have died on death row while awaiting execution.
    I remember there was an old guy on California's death row a few years ago who had a heart attack. They revived him and gave him whatever medical treatment was necessary. A few years later, he was executed.
    Seemed kind of stupid to me.

    Not if he still had an appeal waiting.

    And I'd guess it's a fair number, especially in California, where death row has something like 600 people and they do about 2 executions a year.

    Do away with the death penalty and the probability of such increases exponentially.
