Yahoo: Lawyers for a 480-pound death row inmate in Ohio say their client is too overweight to be put to death.
“Indeed, given his unique physical and medical condition there is a substantial risk that any attempt to execute him will result in serious physical and psychological pain to him, as well as an execution involving a torturous and lingering death,” reads the filing made on behalf of Ronald Post, 53, who was convicted of shooting to death hotel clerk Helen Vantz 29 years ago.
Post, who is set to be executed by lethal injection on January 16, 2013, says that his executioners would encounter several problems, including difficulty finding a viable vein for injection and the likelihood that with his unusual weight he would break any gurney used in the process.
Gang, you know that your old pal Red is nothing if not an advocate for fat out of shape slobs like this proven killer Mr. Post. But can we get off the f-ing crazy train for a minute? We’re not allowed to call people “fat,” we’re not allowed to encourage people to get fat by serving them large drinks with sugar in them, we’re not even allowed to charge people extra when their girth spills over into the next f-ing airplane seat. And NOW, they want us to forego killing them by lethal injection. Because they’re too fat. Fat. Because of a “unique physical and medical condition.” I’ve got news for you, it ain’t that unique, you fat f*ck. You know who had a not-so-unique physical and medical condition? Helen Vantz. She was deathly allergic to getting shot. So sit down in that chair and take your medicine, f-er, or we can drop you in a hole & shoot you in the head.
