Schwarzenegger Delays Execution By 45 Hours

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has delayed Wednesday’s execution by nearly two days.

Corrections Department spokeswoman Terry Thornton says the reprieve means Albert Greenwood Brown is now scheduled to die by lethal injection at 9 p.m. Thursday. He initially was scheduled for execution at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.

Thornton says the governor told corrections officials that the delay would allow appeals courts time to weigh in on Brown’s case and give him time to consider the clemency request.

    I can provide them with a few bottles of liquid DRANO to get by for now

  2. blamethegovt says:

    So they only have one injection for the upcoming execution on Wednesday? How often does California execute people? This does not make any sense whatsoever…….

  3. vudu says:

    No drano needed but good idea. It says they are out of the anesthetic to render the criminal unconcious……. i think we should all chip in for a hammer or mallot or frying pan instead. There are plenty of drugs that could be used. This is some political back room dealing to put a halt to a controversial procedure after a judge refused to do so.

    How about a little cyanide laced Kool Aid, ummmm
    tasted good, makes you sleep long time…….

  5. D in California says:

    Oh come on . . Isn’t there a Generic available ?

  6. chris says:

    freakin ridiculous.

  7. Ben Jenkins says:

    It’s the anesthetic that renders the condemned inmate unconscious before lethal drugs are injected.

    And what kind of Rendering did the victims of these awful crimes get?

    Lets continue to raise our taxes so the over 700 inmates on death row can continue to be comfortable !!! WOW are we messed up !!

  8. chris says:

    most of the people sentenced to execution…the people they hurt…killed…did they knock them unconscious with a drug at first? Hell no…why should they get the privilege of getting a nice painful death! Just ridiculous!

  9. Kevin says:

    Give them a few PBR’s or a handle of Kirkland Vodka. That’ll knock ’em out.

  10. dirtyray says:

    What a complete bunch of BS. Do you smell it too?

  17. George Kirkhill says:

    The obvious pleasure you clowns are taking in executions is painful to read. I presume those who quote the Bible are happy to forget the “You shall not kill” commandment.

    1. Briman says:

      If your going to quote a commandment… least quote it correctly.

      Oh, and by the way, we don’t care for the bible quotes….especially regarding this piece of garbage.

    2. JoAnn Horn says:

      I know the commandments very well but I don’t remember reading in the bible about anyone keeping people in barrels and freezers and eating them, burying them under their house, making 909 men, women, children and animals drink cyanide koolaide or the latest of keeping a family hostage, making the mother go to the bank and then the whole family raped and tortured for 8 hours until they decided to pour gasoline all over the house and let three of them die of smoke inhalation. I guess I am a cafeteria catholic but I don’t believe in turning the other cheek or #5 of the commandments. Forgiveness is a very difficult thing when you are the lone survivor as a result of another man’s hands

  18. John Q says:

    More failures of OBAMA CARE !

  19. sena says:

    Kill them exactly the way they kill their victims. BS pain and suffering. Whole system is wacky where ever you look.

  20. Briman says:

    What BS. What kind of pain killer did he use on the two girls he raped and killed???????

  21. calyman says:

    obvioux pleasure – what about the obvious pleasure this guy took in rape and murder. the commandment from hebrew is murder not kill. get it right

  22. jujubee1 says:

    Show of hands at who’s surprised at the stay for this worthless piece of garbage? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  23. CarmaDogma says:

    Think of it as returning a defective product back to the manufacturer.

  24. FFL says:

    What the heck? THIRTY years to discuss and review this case is not enough? This is what happens when you sleep with a Kennedy!

    1 bullet to the back of the brain. End of problem
