Richard Cooey is not too fat to execute

Did Richard Cooey eat everything in sight during his stay on death row? I didn't know they fed murdering monsters so well. He is 5'7" and 270 pounds at last weigh in. His weight was 200 when convicted of murdering Wendy Offredo and Dawn McCreery in December 1986.

It will be interesting if they release his last meal request.  It may be everything on the menu with his appetite.

COLUMBUS - Options are dwindling for a condemned killer who argues he's too fat to be executed humanely under the state's lethal injection process.

A judge has dismissed the obesity claim made by Richard Cooey, who is scheduled to die Oct. 14 in what would be the first execution in Ohio in more than a year.

Cooey appealed the ruling to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. His other legal challenge is pending in Franklin County Common Pleas Court where he is seeking to have lethal injection declared unconstitutional.

Cooey, convicted of killing two University of Akron students in 1986, also is awaiting a decision on clemency from Gov. Ted Strickland.  Source

Let us hope clemency is not forthcoming.

    I will be glad to donate a .40 cal round from my Glock to do the job.

  2. Too fat?? Nah... Just legalize the Death By Pork Fat Rendering Process. He'll due just fine as a 250 slab of bacon and fifty pairs of shoes.

  3. I call buushit on it all. Tie his fat ass to a chair in a closed garage with a car running. 20 minutes later...another one gone.
