Linda Meyer: Executed prisoner got off easy

January 22, 2014 

I was amazed to read of the uproar over the execution in Ohio.

They said it took 26 minutes for him to die. Do we know how long it took his victim to die after she was brutally raped and stabbed? She was a pregnant newlywed. She was murdered in 1989. It is so sad that people always forget about the victim. I’m sure all the bleeding hearts wouldn’t be so quick to judge if it happened in their family.

As far as I’m concerned, he got off easy. He should have been raped and stabbed.
