(Reuters) - After a nearly day-long delay amid a flurry of final appeals, Missouri put to death a triple murderer who had claimed both that he was innocent and that he suffered from mental incompetence.
John Middleton, 54, was given a lethal injection and pronounced dead at 7:06 p.m. CST, according to Missouri Department of Corrections spokesman Mike O'Connell.

I’m surprised that Gov Nixon didn’t trip over himself to pardon this murderer.
Actually, it’s a great day...we’re alive and that dirtbag isn’t.
One less worm eating the public’s food.
Nitrogen Asphyxiation is by far, the simplest, cleanest, painless, lawyer free way to execute someone.
> Actually, its a great day...were alive and that dirtbag isnt.
You make a valid point.
A rope is none of these things but is damn effective.
The constitution doesn’t guarantee a painless execution.
A few more of these slimeballs disappearing, and the country looks better. Actually, more than a few more would be nice.
Executions of murderers should be very painful, and very public.
Ropes can break, decapitate, or not break the neck. So I would have to say that they are mostly effective. However, when they don’t work, it’s often put out by the media as torture. This then in turn leads to lawyers, lawsuits, “pain and suffering” BS. So, mostly effective but not lawyer friendly.
With Nitrogen Asphyxiation, put on a mask, 1.1 atmospheres of 99% nitrogen gas, and monitor till the brain waves go flat. The condemned passes out painlessly from a lack of oxygen. No “pain and suffering”, no drugs, no failures, no blood, no gore, no lawyers, no lawsuits. Just a nice and tidy execution. Rack’em, Stack’em and set up for the next one.
He's white, which makes it easier to execute him 19 years later without leftists freaking out as much. I don't know why they care - it's the content of his character and not the color of his skin that matters to at least 99.9% of those who want murderers executed.
The usual suspects can care as much as they want to - it’s now a moot point.
