Too Fat to Shut Up

Posted by redsatellite on October 15, 2008

According to a knuckleheaded death row inmate in Ohio…obese men and women are too fat to execute. Yah right. Hmmm…took the state of Ohio all of 5 minutes. Guess that hypothesis didn’t work out for you..huh? But I guess if a skinny guy only takes 4 minutes and 45 seconds to be put to death…you may be onto something BUSTER.

An Ohio death row inmate was executed Tuesday after the Supreme Court rejected his last-minute plea that he was too overweight to be put to death.

Richard Cooey was pronounced dead at 10:28 a.m. ET, said Andrea Carson, spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Corrections. The execution went as scheduled, she said, with “no problems whatsoever.” 


Yah. I suspect that the needle and the drugs had NO IDEA how much he weighed.


also contended regular medication he took for migraines would weaken the effectiveness of an anesthetic used in the three-drug cocktail administered during execution. He said his veins were weakened because of his health issues, and the lethal drugs would constitute cruel and unusual punishment. 


Cruel and Unusual? Don’t you love it when brutal murderers roll out that bull**** line of defense? Uh…let me remind everyone what kind of ‘fun guy’ this man was:

Cooey and a then-17-year-old accomplice were convicted of the brutal murders of Wendy Offredo and Dawn McCreery, students at the University of Akron. The men had been tossing concrete slabs onto Interstate 77, and one of them struck Offredo’s car.

Pretending to “rescue” the women, Cooey and Clinton Dickens took the victims to a remote field, according to prosecutors. There the students were subjected to a three-and-a-half-hour period of rape, torture, stabbings and fatal bludgeonings. Cooey carved an “X” into the stomachs of both women, prosecutors said.

So what kind of treatment did those 2 girls get, huh Cooey? You pathetic miscreant. But I’ve got good news for you…now that you’re dead….I suspect you’ll be losing…..A LOT OF WEIGHT.
