HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- A prisoner on Texas death row for killing a 5-year-old girl and her grandmother in a gang-related shooting at a child's birthday party in Fort Worth a decade ago was executed Wednesday evening. Erick Davila received lethal injection for using a laser-sighted semi-automatic rifle to spray bullets at about 20 people - more than a dozen of them children.
Annette Stevenson, 48, and her granddaughter, Queshawn Stevenson, were killed and four others were wounded, including the girl who was celebrating her 9th birthday.
Authorities said the April 6, 2008, attack was in apparent retaliation for a previous run-in Davila had with the slain girl's father, who was attending the party.

Well, uh - bye!
He should have been dead and rotting in he[[ in April 2009.
But, at least it wasn’t 30 years of appeals.
Glad to hear justice was served.
Somd people should just be put down, as we put down rabid dogs.
Well, I hope it hurt.
Where do I send flowers? I have some lovely dandelions that popped up overnight after a long, hard rain.

It’s all good, but I still think we should go back to hanging these rodents.
Wonder if he was an illegal immigrante? Ain’t diversity grand?
Git R Done!
God Bless Texas.
I respect the way Texas carries out their capital punishment obligation. I wish more states would respect the victims to this extent.
“Prosecutors withheld information that Davila was so high on drugs during the shooting that he was “likely intoxicated to the degree that it would have rendered him temporarily insane,” lawyer Seth Kretzer told the high court in a filing. He argued that could have influenced jurors to decide on a lesser penalty, and questioned the constitutionality of how Texas juries decide death sentences.”
... all the more reason to execute him.
But ten bucks says that *this* punk didn't express any remorse.
Here’s what he said:
“I may have lost the fight but I’m still a soldier,” he said when asked by the warden if he wanted to make a statement. “Take it as it is. To my supporters and family, y’all hold it down. Ten toes down. That’s all I got to say.”
The next morning.
I love when someone says it was a botched hanging when the person’s head is torn off. They tried to kill the guy and succeeded.
Yup,just checked it out.But if anyone has some free time take a peek at what some others have said.As I said before,a good bit of what I’ve read surprises me.
