Jeffrey Landrigan Executed

Arizona serves justice.

Another unrepentant killer goes the way of the dodo.

The Arizona Republic botches this report and makes the story all about the poor old murderer. They should have listed the victims name (at least) but I guess it was not as important to remember the victim as it is for how decently the murderer get his final due.

Chester Dean Dyer was murdered after Landrigan escaped from an Oklahoma prison in 1989. The inept media seems to think the more important issue is whether or not the thug has a painless execution and where the drugs originated that will sleep the murderer to death.

When asked for any last words, he said in a strong voice with a heavy Oklahoma accent: "Well, I'd like to say thank you to my family for being here and all my friends, and Boomer Sooner," a reference to the University of Oklahoma Sooners.

He looked around and smiled again. Then, as the first drug -- sodium thiopental -- took effect, he slowly closed his eyes. A medical technician entered to check that he was fully sedated. Then the execution continued.

Death was pronounced at 10:26 p.m. and the curtain closed.   The Arizona Republic

  1. It is a shame these thugs get all of the press.
    While the victims get little or in most cases none.

  3. He should have been beheaded then drawn & quartered.

    If bet if beheadings came back, the crime rate would plummet instantly.
