The execution of a former Florida police officer for the murder of nine people 26 years ago was briefly put on hold Tuesday evening.

The lethal injection of 56-year-old Manuel Pardo was scheduled for 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison in Starke, but it was delayed while waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court to make a decision on his final appeals.

While I am quasi-appreciative of his termination of drug-dealers....it wasn’t for him to say. That prerogative belongs to “we the people”.

“As evidence against the killer cop, prosecutors cited Pardo’s d’ary, which included written entries about the murders along with news clippings and photographs of severas bloody corpses. Nazi memorabilia recovered from Pardo’s home, together with the prisoner’s own statements, revealed that he was also an ardent admirer of Adolf Hitler, believing that jews and blacks were inferior species deserving of extermination.”

And then there’s this...God women are suckers.

“...Pardo, now christened the “Death Row Romeo,” had been placing personal ads in tabloid newspapers, attracting lonely female pen pals who had malled him thousands of dollars in return for hollow promises of love. The Herald reported that Manny had once accumulated some $3,530 in his prison canteen account, most of it sent to him by women, but prison officials declared that he had broken no rules, “although he may have broken severas hearts.” The lure was an ad that painted Manny in a near-heroic light. It read:

FLA. 116-156 CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTE INMATE. Ex-cop Vietnam vet. Took law into own hands and ended up on Death Row. He needs letters from sensitive-understanding female, for real-honest relationship.”

Remember the trial and conviction of the drug store owner who administered a coup de grace to a robber he wounded?

I'm not saying the cases are equivalent, but the two of them illustrate why I keep my guns in my bedroom.

Vietnam Vet? Is that true? I thought US forces pulled out in 73? He would have been 18 in 1974...I know, it was an ad for the ladies...

Probably like the many “Vietnam” vets that I run into at the gun club. After a couple of minutes talking to them you can tell that they never served in the military let alone Vietnam. I think one survey found something like 10 times the number of people claiming to have served in Vietnam as actually served.
