Karma. Sometimes, It's Perfect.

Heh. Fresh off the BLNN is this tale of perfect karmic retribution...

Obese inmate spared from execution dies in Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio – An obese Ohio inmate whose weight became an issue in his death penalty case has died months after being granted clemency.
A state prisons spokeswoman says 53-year-old Ronald Post died Thursday at a prison hospital where he'd been treated on and off since 2011.
I think Johnny Cash said it best:
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time, run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
He escaped the state-sponsored reaper, but couldn't cheat Death in the end. His final judgement will proceed at more or less the same time as if the execution had been carried out; certainly within the year. While we may not always receive justice here on earth, there will be a final reckoning from which there are no reprieves eventually.

Enjoy the heat, Jabba.

That is all.

It's my understanding that the reason the Governor granted Clemency was due to Budget Concerns. He added up the cost of fighting this Murderous Scum's Case to the Supreme Court, and said "Screw It! It'll be cheaper to keep him Locked Up for the next 30 years rather than have to spend the Attorney General's Budget for the next Five."

But now it looks like we got a Rebate! ; )

I would think that a firing squad or guillotine wouldn't care about your weight.

Maybe we should bring them back.

So he died. I don't think that was karma so to speak, death takes us all. Karma would have been in how his death took place. Even though he was not going to be executed by the state, if he had been brutally assaulted and otherwise accosted by his fellow inmates (in custody of the state) who then beat him to within an inch of his life and then just when he thought he was going to survive (after a long painful stay in the hospital) a seemingly loving and sympathetic nurse came in and told him she had just given him a lethal injection and he would be dead in minutes. Those minutes - knowing she had just killed him - while he was still alive and thinking about it all - that would have been karma as I understand it.

Adieu mon ami,

One asshole down, another one spared.

Can you believe they let Ariel Castro plea bargain out of the death penalty? I thought they only did that shit when they didn't have enough evidence to convict?

Dave H said...

Heath J: No, they did it to spare the victims from having to testify at trial. The fact that it saves the state a few bucks helps too.

Executing Castro wouldn't have improved anyone's life, and with the automatic and other appeals that come into play in a capital case, those women would have been reliving that ordeal for longer than they were actually locked up in his house.

Glenn B said...

Castro may yet have karma visit him in prison, in the way of a big brute with a craving for his posterior.

I had the thought that, if he's that fat, a gallows would do him in right quick.
