Couey faces execution

John Evander Couey is a lucky man. Now, I know what you're thinking. . .Good's finally completed the task of losing his mind - we've seen that coming for years now.

Alas, no. My sanity, which is often cause for concern, particularly among conservative types, is maintaining it's frail grip, have no fear. Allow me to explain exactly why that I feel that this man monster is indeed so lucky, after having just been sentenced to death for the horrible murder of Jessica Lunsford.

First of all, I do not reside in the state of Florida. And, if I did make my home there, I have two young daughters of my own whom I love dearly and wish to personally see to adulthood. Therefore I would not personally mutilate, torture, and finally take the life of this piece of shit. It's called for, it's just, and I would feel great up until *I* was made to pay for my removal of him from this planet. He's lucky in that regard. . .

Secondly, this disgusting repeat-child-offender will be kept away from the general prison population until his state-determined "expiration date". So, instead of wondering when some other inmate will kill him for his despicable crime, he'll get to live in relative peace. Oh, he'll have hope. Much like Jessica did, as she poked her fingers through the first of two plastic bags that he had stuffed her in before throwing a foot of dirt on top of her while she was STILL ALIVE. She desperately wanted to live; but Couey denied her that life. Soon denial will be returned to him.

And third, he's already lived a long life on this planet. FAR longer than Jessica had a chance to. However twisted, bent, and broken his psyche may have been during those years, he HAD those years. Jessica shall not, by his own hand. His time among us was wasted - Couey has a criminal record that includes 24 burglary arrests, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure. He was designated a sex offender for exposing himself to a 5-year-old girl in 1991.

And in early 2005, he kidnapped nine-year-old Jessica from the reasoned safety of her own bedroom. He then raped her in his nearby trailer, killed her to cover his tracks, and buried her alive in a shallow grave less than 150 yards from her home. Couey told Jessica he was planning to take her home, but did not want her to be seen, and so persuaded her to get into a trash bag. Couey then knotted another trash bag over her head, placed her in a hole and shoveled dirt on top of her.

When they found her, with her two fingers poked through the first plastic bag, her other hand was still grasping her favorite stuffed animal, a dolphin won for her at a state fair by her father, which Couey allowed her to bring with her when she was abducted. This was her only available friend that she had as her oxygen-starved lungs failed her and she left this world. She deserved so much more than you have been given.

The sick bastard should be killed exactly how he killed the young innocent child!

They should have taken him right outside to a already prepared gallows and hung him on the spot once he was given the death sentence.

No appeals, just a rope around his neck and a trip through a trap door.

We shouldn't keep him alive longer than Jessica lived after he put her in that bag.

Good Story.

God Bless.
