Did I just read that?

From's home page: "Lawyers Try to Stop Man's Second Execution Try"
He was trying to be executed twice? He tried to execute himself twice and the lawyers got in the way? Drat those lawyers!

From the article:
"Sweeney argues that a second try at an execution is unconstitutional. At the very least, he said, Strickland should further delay Tuesday's execution. Broom "sustained both physical and mental injuries," Sweeney said. "It's going to take time for all the psychic trauma to dissipate. Even if it never goes away, I think it's wrong to try to do it again so quickly in these circumstances.""
The man is a child rapist and murderer. Since when do we wait for murderers and monsters to be psychically at peace before we EXECUTE them? I mean, the first execution failed and so we tell him we're sorry and let him get better and....

This seems a tad ridiculous, doesn't it? Especially considering we tax payers are paying for all his extra days to get emotionally healthy before his second execution.
