Death Row Inmate Too Fat to Die

The always-charming Nancy Grace profiles Ronald Post, a death row inmate seeking a stay of execution. Post, who weighs over 400 pounds, claims that the medical difficulties posed by his condition makes it likely that his execution would be “torturous.” While the AP points out that a stay of execution would also allow Post’s attorneys to pursue arguments that the inmate may have not actually confessed to the crimes he is accused of, Grace sidesteps this particular nuance in favor of her usual public stoning.

    At that weight a light jog should kill him. Put him on a treadmill and let nature take its course.

    Please point me to any good or even half way decent actual news coverage on US tv. I’m sure there must be some but all we ever get to see in the UK is this kind of bizarre, hysterical lunacy.

      Rachel Maddow is good, particularly on foreign and military policy. The News Hour on PBS is also usually quality, and every once in a while 60 minutes really blows the roof off of something, although they’ve been going down hill for at least a decade now.

    That lady’s schtick is so jarring to me. That’s the kind of thing that actually scares me. I am not afraid of the dark. I draw monsters for fun.

    What scares me is the percentage of viewers that fall for this woman’s fake emotion. Its like Pro-wrestling or something.

    Generally there is not too much adipose tissue between your cranial cavity and a .308.

    The other day one of my coworkers had just filled me in about some horrific and sad story. There was a moment of silence and he said an an off handed way while he stood and stretched. “Yep, I don’t know what the hells wrong with this world, I truly don’t”. To which I responded “Nancy Grace”. He stopped stretching for a second and got a thoughtful look. Then said “Guess so”.

    True story.
