Executions

Dear editor:

It took 26 minutes for an Ohio man to die because new lethal injection drugs did not work well. Well, it worked well after 26 minutes didn’t it? If that’s a big problem, why not plug in the chair again or firing squad or rope?

The only problem I see is they wait 20 years to execute someone who should have been executed within 24 hours after one appeal. Another problem is pleading guilty to a lesser charge. It is what it is and nothing less.

Every state should have the death penalty. You mean to tell me Europe is the only place they can make the lethal drug? That is very hard to believe. It has got to be an eye for an eye.

Anyone who kills should automatically be put to death. You won’t have over-crowding then.

Semper Fi,
