How come you cant hang a fat guy? Is it a neck problem or would he be decapitated?


It's more likely the rope will snap, and while this doesn't actually give you the mythical 'get out of being put to death' card that urban legend would have you believe, it's more likely that he'd get major injuries, including two broken ankles. And again, while I personally don't care if someone being put to death for an awful crimes feels the most pain in the history of hurt, there would be an uproar that they were 'torturing' the 'poor fellow' if they did this and it failed.

"a good bandit is a dead bandit"

Brazilian saying


it doesn´t matter how the guy will die. just finish them. firing squad is when you have a war and a war prisoner. when you deserve die with some honor. in other situations, one guard, one gun, one bullet, one dead bandit...

Why the hell don't they just shoot him up with a lethal dose of LSD


Because that would be impossible.

He's not too fat to continue stuffing his fat face. How convenient.

Just shoot him in the head


I get what your saying but I don't think any state uses that method.
How the hell does he get enough calories to support that weight in prison?

Does not really matter because the Republican Governor of Ohio last week commuted the sentence to life in prison. Not because he was too fat but because he did not have adequate legal representation.

Maybe his lawyer couldn't fit in the room.
