(CNN) -- William Garner, 37, who was convicted of murdering five children in 1992 in Cincinnati, Ohio, was executed by intravenous lethal injection at 10:38 a.m. Tuesday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio, according to the state's Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
The execution procedures started at 10 a.m., and 20 minutes later, Garner began receiving a lethal dose of sodium thiopental, according to department spokeswoman Julie Walburn.
When the coroner first came in to examine the body, he saw no signs of life but thought he may have heard a faint heartbeat, Walburn said. She said state protocol required the coroner to wait five more minutes, then re-examine Garner. At that point, the coroner declared the inmate was dead.
How does it take 18 years to execute a motherfucker
fuck the system, apparently it is more cost effective to have someone server a life sentence than it is to execute them, I've looked into it and found the majority of people who know about such shit agree
pre-enlightenment public English executions ftw, make an example out of the punk
But apparently it's necessary to make sure we don't kill the innocent even though every so often one does seem to slip through.
I say we throw em to the lions the second they're convicted. That'll teach those damn child killers! :mad:
Them videos never get old.
I know I must have seen you in one of them, Dfg.
Considering the average prisoner is about >20k a year to feed, clothe, and shelter them. I see a few fluid ounces of poison to be much cheaper.
However it makes the man that had executed him simply just as much as a murdered that he was. The blood has been spilled and that can't be ignored. Shame that we're still resorting to such barbaric practices in this age.
However obviously the man was terrible for the crimes he had committed, but honestly, can we truly attempt to justify the spilling of more blood? As well, would this truly be honoring the Victims that we're slaughtered? Can you truly say that they would have wanted vengeance instead of simply justice against the man that had taken their lives?
