Now this dude knows how to face death!

They blocked his lethal injection 2.5 hours before it was scheduled today.  It wasn't the first time they stopped his execution, it was the third time!  Once they stopped it after his "final meal".  Brutal!

It's the logical upshot of Capital punishment, once you allow for appeal as you have to, you inevitably get these tortuous situations.
There are lots of ways to measure a society, but one good one is the way it treats those who commit crimes. This particular form of human sacrifice at the high alter of justice coupled with the f**king ridiculous 'three strikes' policy the US adopted measure those within the society who support it, and also those that stand by and let it happen.
