Tennessee death row inmate Philip Workman says he's afraid of his upcoming execution.
There are people bringing up 8th Amendment questions regarding cruel and unusual punishment from the fear of the upcoming death penalty.
You have never heard so many excuses in your life as Workman gives for how he murdered a police lieutenant trying to arrest him for aggravated robbery.
Under the law, overwhelmingly supported by the good citizens of the great State of Tennessee, Workman's actions fully qualify as capital murder.
Tennessee plans to give him a three-drug cocktail, involving a sedative, a drug to paralyze, and a drug to stop the heart.
Hell, give him what he wanted when he killed the cop-- shoot him full of cocaine.
I don't hate the man. I know what he is, and if you read and listen, you will, too. I don't feel sorry for him, either. I just know that he's condemned, and that his sentence should be carried out.
I'm so sorry that we have men like him in the world. Goodbye, Mr. Workman. Hope your last thoughts are about the lives of those you disrupted. That's not hate-- it's just a prayer for your sense of honesty and empathy in your final moments.
