A bunch of hubbub is being made of the fact that the State of Utah is gonna put 4 .30 holes in one Ronnie Lee Gardner tonight. Also, the fact that the last firing squad execution was performed 14 years ago. I remember that execution quite well, as it was also performed by Utah lawmen. John Albert Taylor, convicted of a brutal rape and murder, was given the just rewards for his crime, as well.
I'm not going to make any commentary on it, beyond this: That's how Utah rolls. Texas may have an express lane, but Utah still gives the touchy-feely "misguided choirboys" crowd the finger, and the folks that need killing high-speed lead poisoning.
