Arizona’s McCain: Execution was torture
Associated Press ^ | Jul 25, 2014 8:05 PM EDT

U.S. Sen. John McCain says the execution of an Arizona inmate that lasted two hours was torture.

The Republican who represents the conservative state told Politico that he supports capital punishment for certain crimes but felt Wednesday’s execution of Joseph Rudolph Wood was a “bollocks-upped situation.”

The execution has renewed debate about the death penalty. But Arizona lawmakers say the debate is not likely to have an impact on practices in the state. …

I am starting to doubt every story told about McCain, especially with respect to him being a hero. He seems to me to be another John Kerry.

Yup...he is wrong on just about everything

If this is “torture” where the doctors said the crook was asleep and couldn’t feel a thing

Then what was your treatment at Hanoi Hilton, Senator?

Every time McLame speaks, it’s torture. An old retired cop tweaked the nose of a liberal at the local dog park today with this story. He sucked her in by asking about the sad tale of the two hour execution and as soon as she started in feeling sorry for the killer he said “Him?, Screw him he killed two people, he didn’t suffer half enough!” I thought the lib was going to have a coronary.

INMATE 086279 - WOOD, JOSEPH R.


Wood and his 29-year-old ex-girlfriend, Debbie Dietz, had been involved in a turbulent relationship for 5 years, which had been marred by numerous breakups and several domestic violent incidents. Debbie was working at a local body shop owned by her family. On August 7, 1989, Wood walked into the shop and shot Gene Dietz, age 55, in the chest with a .38 caliber revolver, killing him. Gene Dietz's 70-year-old brother was present and tried to stop Wood, but Wood pushed him away and proceeded into another section of the body shop. Wood went up to Debbie, placed her in some type of hold, and shot her once in the abdomen and once in the chest, killing her. Wood then fled the building. Two police officers approached Wood and ordered him to drop his weapon. After Wood placed the weapon on the ground, he reached down and picked it up, and pointed it at the officers. The officers fired, striking Wood several times. Wood was transported to a local hospital where he underwent extensive surgery.

I think it was botched. I don’t really want to torture even the guilty. I just want them cleanly executed. My solution? A heavy sedative, and then a heroin overdose. Simple, and effective. Done and gone! Shoulda been done to Manson many years ago. Do it quick and clean. Just get rid of them!

Just how the hell do such losers as Obama, who never held a real job in his life and McCain, who almost sank an aircraft carrier, manage to get so far in life?

This is why we need to go back to old sparky, the firing squad or the gas chamber. We can't keep treating these evil murdering butchers as if they were animals. Imagine how their "loved ones" must feel.
