Glad to see you go......

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- A man convicted of murdering four children with an assault rifle was executed Wednesday, becoming the first Tennessee inmate put to death by electrocution since 1960
Daryl Holton, 45, had confessed to shooting his three young sons and their half-sister in 1997 in the town of Shelbyville, about 50 miles south of Nashville.
Holton told police he killed the children because his ex-wife had refused to let him see them. He said he intended to kill her and himself, but instead turned himself in.

Holton, a Gulf War veteran, confessed to the 1997 killings, saying he lined up the children at his uncle's auto repair garage and shot them.

Holton chose the electric chair over the state's preferred execution method, lethal injection. Under Tennessee law, death row inmates can choose between the electric chair and lethal injection if their crimes were committed before 1999.

good for tennessee. i got no problem with frying this selfish bastard. they should have had him hold a turkey so he could cook dinner for the rest of the convicts. frankly i think they should hook up all the death row guys like a row like light bulbs and get them all done at once. a good electrician would have no problem hooking that up.

The greatest waste of space are those people bemoaning the fact that this POS was executed. He WANTED to die (I saw a TV interview where he clearly stated that). Geez, ya losers, let him DIE already - oh, and while you're at it....
...GET A LIFE - you're way too obsessed with lives of murderers.
