Few are shedding tears over killer’s execution

I read with disgust the Jan. 18 article in The News about the protracted execution of Dennis McGuire in Ohio (“Executions in doubt after Ohio affair”). My reaction stemmed not from the description of the execution, but from a statement by McGuire’s son. Referring to his executed father, the son was quoted as saying: “Nobody deserves to go through that.”

The same may be said, with considerably more justification, for the pregnant newlywed his father raped and stabbed to death.
