Skip to comments.Alabama inmate defiant before his execution for killing cop

A convicted cop killer who sued Alabama over its lethal injection method was put to death, but not before he cursed at the state and said: "I hate you."
As the procedure began Thursday night, Torrey Twane McNabb, 40, raised both of his middle fingers in a show of defiance. McNabb's attorneys had unsuccessfully sought to stop the execution since he was one of several inmates in an ongoing lawsuit challenging the humaneness of the state's lethal injection procedure.
McNabb was convicted of killing Montgomery police officer Anderson Gordon in 1997. He shot Gordon five times as the officer sat in his patrol car after arriving at a traffic accident McNabb caused while fleeing a bail bondsman, prosecutors said.
Gordon's relatives said in a statement that the 30-year-old officer known as "Brother" was devoted to his family, his two children and his work as a police officer.
"Over 20 years ago, we lost a companion, a father, a brother and friend who only wanted to make a difference in his community," the statement read. "Although, the wounds of having a family member murdered can never be healed, through this tragedy, the Gordon family has remained strong and will continue to be resilient." Powered by Boohle

I wouldn’t have put even money he was destined for a lethal injection when his mother made up his name....
“would have” ...not “wouldn’t have”
The POS lived at least 20 yrs too long. It should not take decades to execute such murderers.
“The POS lived at least 20 yrs too long. It should not take decades to execute such murderers.”
Agreed. Twenty days would have been more than sufficient.
You Fumb Duck. Ha, Ha!! You daid!
With the taxpayers paying for his three meals per day and room and board for all that time. Waste of money. Guys like him should pay their way through prison with manual work every day or get the injection much, much quicker.
On Investigation Discovery this week, they were interviewing the mother of a young murder-rape victim. The killer got a life sentence. The mother said it wasn’t fair that he took the girl’s life from the earth, yet the family went to work every day to pay taxes to help the murderer live, and support him.
The fact it took 20 years to put down this mad dog is unconscionable.
God may have mercy on his soul, but I have none.
The issue was not what it should have been: the certainty of his murdering another human being.
No one denied that. All accepted it. Case closed.
Glad the pos is now worm food. Betting the BLM crowd and the pope are shedding big tears.
Defiant or not his sorry ass is still dead!
LOL!! Sadly true.
Fumb Duck. Good one.
