Condemned Dallas carjacker set to die Thursday

Yokamon Hearn 

Excerpt:

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - Frank Meziere had watched a Dallas Mavericks basketball game at a restaurant with a friend and before heading home stopped at a self-service car wash to clean his black Mustang convertible.

The 23-year-old Plano stockbroker, a 1996 Texas A&M University graduate, never made it home.

His body was found the next day, March 26, 1998, along the side of a road in an industrial area of Oak Cliff, an area of south Dallas. He had been shot in the head 10 times. His car was found about five miles away, abandoned and with the lights on.

"Having dealt with murders, you think you've seen it all," said Jason January, a former Dallas County assistant district attorney. "But this innocent victim was shot almost for sport.

"It was just the sheer overkill of the thing that was ludicrous."

Yokamon Hearn bragged to friends about how he "domed" Meziere, meaning he shot him in the head. Hearn was set to die Thursday evening for the slaying.

There is a need for the death penalty. And states that enforce it only help remind murderers that they will forfeit their life should they commit the act.

Am I reading this right? Texas is executing this creep six years after the crime? In California, where I used to live, the average length of time is over 20 years. If that.

There must be something about "Do not mess with Texas."

I guess the retarded defense didnt work out.

Funny how everyone on death row is suddenly retarded.

Let that be a lesson to others who would murder here.

I'm getting very tired of the "mentally retarded" copout.

This POS had the mental capacity to murder - to me that means he has the mental capacity to be executed.

Shot over ten times in the head....in almost "sportlike" fashion....victim is white....shooter is black, yet not even a vague reference to this being a hate crime! Has the life of young white males now been devalued so much that our alleged legal system does not even investigate the possiblity of this heinous act being a hate crime?

In an appeal filed this week, lawyers for Hearn said the inmate may be mentally retarded and asked the courts to halt the punishment so they can pursue their claim.

Looks like there is a double benefit in snuffing this creep.

Why should this waste of oxygen be allowed to just "go to sleep" after taunting his victim? And then shooting him TEN EFFING TIMES IN THE HEAD?

Justice for this guy would be terrible, terrible suffering. Like being...

...dipped in molasses, bound to a wall and quarantined with a colony of soldier ants...

...Or fed (alive) to wolves.

"he may be retarded"

No $#!+? Honestly, this statement is an insult to people with genuine, congenital mental handicaps.

Sometimes I question my support of the death penalty, and if I'm being hypocritical as a Christian being pro-life and pro-death penalty.

Then I read about an incident like this and I have no doubts. Good riddance to scum.

Hearn swung the Tec-9, a 9 mm assault-style rifle

Say what?!

Tec-9 semi-automatic handgun.
