Good Riddance

Last night, Tennessee has one less inmate in its prison system. Interesting sidebar from this execution. "But the lawyers claimed the method should be declared unconstitutional because it's cruel and unusual punishment." It was cruel and unusual treatment for him to kill his three sons and their half sister because he couldn't work out his differences with his ex-wife. Not whether he was killed by "Ole Sparky" or by lethal injection. It is good to see that Ole Sparky is still working after all these years.

The truly sad part is that as state taxpayers we put him up for the last 10 years. Hopefully, the mother of the four kids can now have peace, knowing that he is gone and the payment for his crime has been paid.
