    Oy! Some death row prisoner is suing to prevent his execution because he is "too fat" to die.

    He's saying it would be cruel and inhuman because someone might have to stick him a few times to start an IV line. I wonder if he'd sue them for sticking him three times in an attempt to save his life, too?

    We started IVs on people weighing as much or more than he does hundreds of times. Just like thin people, sometimes you hit a vein the first time, sometimes you miss and have to stick them again.

    It's not like it's excruciatingly painful. It's a bee sting, fer cryin' out loud. Try having an interossous stuck directly between your tib/fib like they sometimes do to small kids when they can't access a vein quickly.

    Anyhow...should they delay his execution until he loses weight or what? It's only been 30 years since he committed his crime - what's a few more decades? <<insert sarcastic emoticon here, please.>>

    i saw that yesterday and was going to post it ... then I was like how do I post this - it's almost to crazy to post ... then I see your title "Crazy Stuff".

    I'm sure they could up the dose plenty to do the job - how do they do a horse - that's the plan.

    He's not even mentioned the dose - he's worried about the fact that they might have to stick him more than once while trying to access a vein....the dosage is easy - it's all calibrated by weight, anyhow.

    Oh, and he's concerned the gurney might not hold him.

    There are specially designed gurneys and carts - as well as special wheelchairs and hospital beds. We had carts in the ER called "Big Boy" carts made especially for the morbidly obese.

    480 isn't all that unheard of. Our biggest patient was a 44 year old woman who weighed 700+ pounds. She'd come in by ambulance all the time....the FD had to remove her front window to get her out of the house each time....they'd take her out of the house on a platform they'd made especially for her and then transport her on the floor of the ambulance after removing the gurney. It pretty much took the whole fire department to carry her.

    She once sat on the toilet in her ER room and pulled the whole darn thing out of the wall and floor.

    That was interesting, to say the least.

    From then on we made her use a bed pan.

    Even more interesting - unless you were the one who had to retrieve it.

    In spite of that, she was a very nice lady.....albeit one with problems. We were all pretty much grief striken when she died....we could not do efficient CPR on her no matter how hard we all tried - she was just too massive for us to make the necessary contact with her heart.

    Oh, and her husband weighed about 102 pounds soaking wet.

    But I am waxing nostalgic now.....the point is, she got IVs all the time. Usually on the first attempt.

    He would die a tortuous death because they couldn't find a vein? Me thinks not.

    OT: For a scary thought....my mom was one of nine kids, and Im one of 13 grandkids.

    4 of her bros/sisters are or were (passed on) 450+

    Of the 13 grandkids - 3 were 425+ with the biggest coming in at 575 (pre-lap band).

    Sadly, I wish I was making this up...and here I think I'm a beast at 230.....

    That would help ... but I would add 'Honey Boo Boo" as a kicker for good measure.

    My question is "where did he get enough food to get that fat?"

    Tax payers shouldn't be footing the bill for murderers to eat that much. I thought they only got bread & water.....looks like he gets a couple of big Mac's, fries and a chocolate shake...SUPER SIZED too!

    OT: To sustain a weight of 480 lbs, a 59 y/o Male who is relatively sedentary would need somewhere around 4300 calories a day!!!

    WTF!

    Jail sounds like it might be a cure to hunger, not having a roof over your head and missing out on True Blood......

    ...and getting that junk removal surgery too....

    That fat slob wasn't all that concerned with cruel and unusual punishment when he murdered a hotel clerk in cold blood.

    What a society we've become. Flat screen TV's for inmates, sex changes on the taxpayer dime, and now death rowers obese on taxpayer provided cheeseburgers seeking a stay of execution cuz of their self imposed lardness. What a country.

    Maybe he should take his appeal to Judge Mark Wolf, the Reagan Appointee who ordered the sex change operation in Massachusetts..

    If I could "Like" this post 1000 times, I would! The country is being taken over by a bunch of polotically correct wimps/pansies, that's what's happening RW.

    Who gives a rats arse about an incarcerated PRISONER'S sexual feelings or a lard-butted murderer's concerns about being put to death.

    Or how some American's comments or video offends people on the other side of the globe.

    Can someone tell us why anyone would/should care?

    We need to toughen up quickly...everything's about feelings now....and if my post offends you, GOOD!! That's what I want to do!

    The Horse,Bullet behind the ear.

    If they let the Muslims kill him they will stone him to death, if they did they would be throwing rocks at him for a month, I think they should cut his head off.
