Ohio Judge Proud of Che Guevara and Obama

Lourain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge speaks in his office in Lorain, Ohio as posters of Che Guevara and Barack Obama hang on his wall.

Ohio judge: State must change lethal injection law


USA Today

A judge in Ohio says the state's method of putting prisoners to death is unconstitutional because two of three drugs used in the lethal injection process can cause pain.

Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge said Tuesday the state's lethal injection procedure doesn't provide the quick and painless death required by Ohio law.

Burge said Ohio must stop allowing a combination of drugs and focus instead on a single, anesthetic drug.

The ruling is likely be appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court.

Ohio has executed 26 inmates since it resumed putting prisoners to death in 1999.

The Three Stooges. The asshole at the desk is trying to count up to three, and he's stumped at "two". He also doesn't understand that Che was a fan of the death penalty, preferably with a bullet behind the ear.

I'm sure the Judge knows what a butcher Che really was, but like all the left they never acknowledge the atrocities perpetuated by the enemies of this nation or freedom loving people, they revere them. To show a picture of both Che and Obama on the same wall should be a warning to any and all who understand the bloody history of Communist revolution.

Jack yes isn't that something. He is making a statement using his wall in his office by what he has done.
