Letter: Painless death not of concern to me

Please allow me to make two observations regarding Judge Jim Brady blocking the execution of a murderer on the basis that the lethal injection might be painful:

  • I don’t think convicted killers should be boiled in oil or stoned to death. I don’t even think they should be killed in the same way they killed their victims. But I have 10 times the concern for an earthworm I’ve accidentally crushed than I do for a killer’s comfort in the last 45 seconds of his miserable life.
  • This Judge Brady. ... I’m curious as to what sort of sleep aid he uses. Must be the good stuff.
