COLUMBUS, Ohio - A prison doctor couldn’t find veins in the arms of an Ohio death row inmate during a pre-execution check-up, the inmate said Friday by video in rare court testimony as he challenges the state’s new, never-tried lethal-injection method.

Condemned child killer Ronald Phillips said the doctor could find only a vein on his right hand following an examination on Oct. 18 at the medical centre at Chillicothe Correctional Institution, south of Columbus.

“I guess the Lord hid my veins from them,” Phillips said.

Phillips testified as part of a lawsuit brought by his attorneys to delay his execution while they gather evidence against the state’s new execution policy, which includes a two-drug injection process.

Have to ask if this guy stopped hydrating in the days leading up to the execution. Veins in the hands will work just as well as arm veins.

I hope that there is a special place in hell for villains like him. Maybe the good Lord hid his veins in hell. He'll find them there, waiting for him.

Nitrogen Asphyxiation - breathing mask at 1.1 atmospheres of 99% nitrogen gas. Wait till the brainwaves have been flat for 5 min before removing.

No toxic chemicals, no pain for the condemned, no blood or other tissues. And most importantly, works on everyone and no “pain and suffering” lawyers.

A bullet fired in his ear would find his brain.

Grab a flap of belly skin, pull it out and give it to him inter-peritoneal. He’ll absorb the dose just fine.

Forget the veins, how about slowly cooking him to death like the French use to do to Islamic assassins in the early 1800s? Tie him to a tree and start with the arm, slow cook it down to the bone, keep going to the other arm then legs, then if he’s still alive impale him through the butt. That’s what they did to the assassin of General Jean Kleber in 1800.

IIRC the SCOTUS ruled,no more that a few years ago,in favor of the execution protocol of a particular state (I think it might have been KY).If I'm correct in my recollection then it seems that *all* states should adopt that protocol...problem solved!

Convicted child killer.

A good old Louisville Slugger up alongside the head (delivered with extreme prejudice) would do it nicely.

This subhuman raped and killed a three year old girl. Ever met a 3 year old girl?

God did nothing to help this....thing...it is a failed byproduct of random natural forces. A disease on two legs.

Inactivity from being in prison can keep veins from surfacing.

********************
Nitrogen Oxide. Very common method of suicide by Dentists; often found in their offices with the masks on. Painless.

My BIL was a dentist. Sometimes, while he was doing stuff to my teeth, I could tell I was about to pass out. I was still concious enough to reach the valve on the mask and let in more air.

Put the damned needle between his eyes, and in deep. That should do it.

Just think of the child he killed and jam it in.

Fuck him and his lawyers.

sometimes the condemned don’t die after the first volley. The commander of the detail had to end it with a single shot.
I think hanging is the best way of dealing with these scum. Its a disgraceful way to go.
