I watched an execution
I posted about a man in a park who raped and murdered a fifty-something-year-old woman in a park under aggravating circumstances.
Because of my job I had to watch him die by lethal injection.
He was led into the room and like the psychopathic murderer that he was, he came in unafraid and calm. The needles were inserted without incident and the poison was pumped into him.
He closed his eyes and started snoring and then quit. The whole procedure lasted about ninety seconds. He was pronounced dead and his mother who had not been allowed to view the execution was given his body.
No one felt sorry for him. Only his mother cared that such a horrible person was no longer a threat to society.
He was one of five sons born to his mother and every single one of them are serving life with no parole for crimes such as theft, assault and repeat robberies of banks and car theft. The executed son was the only murderer.
I'm glad she wasn't allowed at the execution. She had gone nuts when her son was sentenced to die ten years ago and the powers that be didn't want her to do the same thing while he was executed.
I'm not really sure why but I'm depressed right now. It's not because I saw him executed but because people like him exist n the first place.
The woman married a known criminal who is now dead and she should have known enough about genetics to know that having his children was risky. She had one son after another by him and each one was worse than the one before.
