I always think it's funny when people saying executing someone is inhumane but in the same sentence say they hope the person suffers in prison till they die.
Agreed!

I'll never understand that

Some people do well in jail, i.e.; Richard Speck.
Don't know how to do a screen capture of him in his panties and no bra.

didn't she plead guilty? this guy is pleading innocent.

Looked it up:


Aileen Carol Wuornos (February 29, 1956 – October 9, 2002)

http://<br /> http://abcnews.go.com...tory?id=124614

"Aileen Wuornos, the first woman ever to fit the FBI profile of a serial killer, was executed by lethal injection today.


Wuornos, 46, was pronounced dead from lethal injection at 9:47 a.m. in Florida State Prison near Starke, said Jill Bratina, a spokeswoman for Gov. Jeb Bush.

She had been working as a prostitute along Florida's highways when she started her killing spree in 1989.

By the time it was over two years later, there were at least six dead — all middle-aged white men who had made the mistake of picking up Wuornos on the road.

She admitted guilt for the killings and went willingly to the execution chamber.
"I was sentenced to death," Wuornos said in a Feb. 2001 interview with ABC affiliate WPLG in Miami. "I need to die for the killing of those people."

During her trial Wuornos was remorseless and angry. After she was convicted and given six death sentences, Wuornos began screaming at the jury.

She called the jurors scumbags and warned the judge that she would kill again.

"Everything they said about me was so full of lying," she said after the trial. "It wasn't funny. None of that stuff was true. I am totally sane. I didn't do drugs."

Sordid, sensational, and chilling, her story was retold in three movies, two books, a comic book, and even set to music in an opera.

‘As Cold as Ice’

But Wuornos did not remain defiant. In prison, she was adopted by an evangelical Christian couple.

She said her feelings had changed, and she felt the need to come clean about what she had done.

"I'm one who seriously hates human life and would kill again," she wrote in a letter to the Florida Supreme Court.

In April, after Wournos served 10 years on death row, the Court agreed to allow her to fire her lawyers and drop all appeals."

Yes. She did. Her girlfriend set her up.
