Death Row Inmate Sues, Claims He's Too Fat To Execute
Sick Monster...I bet he wasn't "too fat" to rape and murder those two young ladies. He doesn't deserve to die in a human way, IMO.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A death row inmate scheduled for execution in October says he's so fat that Ohio executioners would have trouble finding his veins and that his weight could diminish the effectiveness of one of the lethal injection drugs.
Lawyers for Richard Cooey argue in a federal lawsuit that Cooey had poor veins when he faced execution five years ago and that the problem has been worsened by weight gain.
They cite a document filed by a prison nurse in 2003 that said Cooey had sparse veins and that executioners would need extra time.
"When you start the IV's come 15 minutes early," wrote the nurse who examined Cooey. "I don't have any veins."

Whack him in the head with a steel pipe. Once he's unconscious, he'll be fine.

That's quite an original position. Maybe they'll put him on a diet and his attorney's brief will become moot.

They don't need to find a vein for a firing squad, right?Please help find Gerry Largay, 66, missing on the Appalachian Trail in Maine.

Starve him until October. That should drop a few pounds.

believe me, a good doctor, even a good nurse or for that matter,a good philabotomist (sp) can doit!. No problems. This guy is just a whiner.
"I'm toooo faaaaaaattt".
I'm not fat, have low bp and they have a heck of a time finding a good vein on me. So big deal....I get stuck several times til it gets done.
Why can't fat inmate deal with that? Because he's a crybaby, that's why.
Maybe the State has an electric chair they could use? A firing squad?
He was a "big man" when he was raping and killing. Let him be a "big man" now.

How can you gain weight in prison? I've seen the portions. He must have had some SERIOUS canteen funds and never got up off his buttocks.FUN... is a renewable resource!

If the prison puts him on a salad diet, or restricted calorie diet will he sue for inhumane treatement? Will it ever end. I bet I can find a vein to stick that needle in.

I swear... If you can maliciously kill someone, why can't you take it like a man and pay the ultimate price for your crime?
