I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Live! From Death Row!

Elder inmate Clarence Allen needed 2 injections ,a second shot of potassium chloride to stop his heart from beating.
"It's not unusual. This guy's heart had been going for 76 years," said Warden Stephen Ornoski
Having suffered a heart attack back in September, Allen had asked prison authorities to let him die if he went into cardiac arrest before his execution, a request prison officials said they would not honor.
"At no point are we not going to value the sanctity of life," said prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon. "We would resuscitate him," then execute him.
Sheesh. "Sanctity of life?"
