Florida's Green Governor signs his 1st Death Warrant

It has been a long time in coming.


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Gov. Charlie Crist on Wednesday signed his first death warrant since taking office in January, ending a temporary halt on lethal injections that was imposed because of a botched execution last year.
It was not botched. Diaz was wiggling around and made it difficult to insert the instrument of his death (as opposed to the same courtesy Diaz gave his victim (a gun shot)).

Mark Dean Schwab, 38, is scheduled to be executed Nov. 15, Crist said. Schwab was sentenced to death in 1992 for the kidnapping, rape and murder of 11-year-old Junny Rios-Martinez of Cocoa. He targeted the boy after seeing his picture in a newspaper.
The Death Penalty was made for a monster like Schwab. Although November is a long time away it looks like he will miss Thanksgiving Dinner at the State Facility. I feel the tax burden easing some what.

Schwab was convicted of first-degree murder, sexual battery upon a child and kidnapping of a child under 13. (Source.)
