Victims Suffered Cruel Deaths, Too
The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments as to whether a condemned criminal was subjected to cruel and unusual punishment during an attempted execution. He complained that he was “stuck” with a needle 18 times while they were searching for a vein. His crime: abducting, raping and murdering a 14-year-old girl who was on her way home after a football game.
What about the pain and suffering of the victim? It’s too bad we can’t execute their killers in the same manner as their victims.
