Eric John King Executed



Arizona serves justice.

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) — A man convicted of killing two people in a 1989 Phoenix convenience store robbery was executed Tuesday despite last-minute arguments by his attorneys who raised questions over one of the lethal injection drugs and said they had raised "substantial doubt" about his guilt.

Eric John King's death at the state prison in Florence was the first execution in the state since October and one of the last expected to use a three-drug lethal injection cocktail.

The 47-year-old had maintained his innocence since his arrest and his lawyers fought until the last minute to get his sentence reversed or delayed.

Defense attorneys almost always portray the killer as something other than a monster that took somebodies life. Personally as long as the drug does the same thing to the perp, as the actions of perp did to the victim, then I don't care what kind of drug they use. It is a pity firing squads are no longer used.

Defense attorney Michael Burke had argued that the Department of Corrections may have engaged in fraud when it imported the sedative from Great Britain by listing it on forms as being for "animals (food processing)," not humans.  Source

Great guy this Burke is huh?

As freedom is crushed

0bama finds time to golf while the rest of the world crumbles.

Yet Barry is absolutely silent while his Saudi buddies impose their yoke at behest of the Bahrain Government.



Found at Moonbattery. Jokerized by me.
Japan in a huge crisis as President WTF pays lip service and takes yet another out of country junket. My guess it won't be Japan anytime soon.

Maybe he could send that ass bite Joe Biden there as radiation would have little effect on an organism without an operational brain.

I guess guess not ever caring about anyone but yourself allows this kind of crass attitude and behavior.

67%

Gas is up 67% since the 0bama event and it is still rising.

He won't get reelected if this does not change. Story here.

The problem is the dork in the White House, at the moment.

Drill baby drill.

Johnnie Baston Executed


Ohio serves justice.

It seems pentobarbital works just as well as sodium thiopental for executing human versions of animals.

Baston, 37, died at 10:30 a.m. local time on Thursday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio, according to JoEllen Smith, spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. Baston, who was convicted of the 1994 killing of Chong Mah, is the ninth person executed in the U.S. in 2011.

Lethal injection executions in Ohio have previously used sodium thiopental. But Hospira Inc. of Illinois said in January it would stop making the drug altogether after Italy, where it planned to move production, objected because the European Union has banned the death penalty.

So Ohio is now using pentobarbital, a barbiturate, according to Smith.

Prosecutors alleged that Baston, who had a juvenile record as a thief, had killed Mah and taken team logo hats and "starter" type jackets from the store, according to Baston's clemency report.   Story here.


0bama and dictators

0bama just cannot turn on one of his own can he?



France leads the way while 0bama parties at the White House.
France became the first country to formally recognize the rebels’ newly created Interim Governing Council, saying it planned to exchange ambassadors after President Nicolas Sarkozy met with two representatives of the group based in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

The international Red Cross said dozens of civilians have been wounded or killed in recent days in grueling battles between Gadhafi’s army and the opposition movement trying to oust him.   Story Here.
Hope and Change again I see.

Florida harpy sighting


The freaking rail link is not even in her district! She needs to just be silent.

Congresswoman Corrine Brown

With money for a high speed rail link between Orlando and Tampa in limbo, we hear the criticism against Governor Scott ratcheting up.

Congresswoman Corrine Brown blasted Scott's rejection of federal money during a short but fiery speech on the House floor.

"Unfortunately, Governor (Scott) seems to be much more interested in politics than creating jobs or improving the transportation system for the great people of Florida".

Governor Scott does not appear to be pushed off his position that Florida taxpayers would be at risk if he accepts more than two billion dollars from the federal government.  Source

In Florida we have our own Sheila Jackson Lee. Her name is Corrine Brown. They are harpies of a feather.
