1994


May 10, 1994...Illinois
Lethal Injection
John Wayne Gacy who had tortured and murdered 33 young men and boys during the 1970s was executed by lethal injection at the Stateville penitentiary in Joliet, Illinois. After the injection began, one of the three lethal drugs clogged the tube leading into Gacy's arm, and therefore stopped flowing. Blinds covering the window through which witnesses observed the execution were then drawn. The clogged tube was replaced with a new one, the blinds were opened, and the execution process resumed. Gacy actually took 18 minutes to die. Anaesthesiologists blamed the problem on the inexperience of prison officials who were conducting the execution, saying that proper procedures taught in IV 101 would have prevented the error.

you know what? i believe that Gacy's execution was intentionally botched to inflict severe pain and suffering on the monster of a human being who sexually assaulted, drugged and killed scores of young boys, some as young as 13years old. usually i am a fair and civil minded individual, but this case has severely challenged my resolve. i feel no pity for this man. May God forgive me....L.T. Sydney Australia

I personally believe if we're going to execute people, the way we do it is too kind anyway.

The only purpose that can be found in execution is as a deterrent. Otherwise, it really is just state sanctioned murder.

In order for it to serve it's purpose, it should be public, prolonged, and gruesome...

Screw the concept of cruel and unusual punishment where murderers are concerned. The victims and their families have had cruel and unusual punishment inflicted upon them. Whatever happens to the perpetrators is justice.

Let the punishment fit the crime, I say. We don't need lethal chemicals, electric, gas... screw "humane" methods. Give them a taste of their own medicine.

I dont think 18 minutes was long enough for him to suffer before he died. They should have botched it even worse and made him suffer for as long as his victims did while he was molesting them and murdering them. For scum like him the lethal injection is far too an easy way out.
