ith all of my illnesses, the following story has convinced me that if I commit murder, I'll never be executed. This is just unreal and the perfect example of how bad our justice system has become.

An Ohio judge has delayed the execution of a former cult leader and convicted murderer who claims that obesity and diabetes will put him at a greater risk for suffering during lethal injection.

Jeffrey Lundgren, once a self-styled prophet in the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was scheduled to die Oct. 24 for the shooting deaths of his followers, Dennis and Cheryl Avery, and their three daughters, ages 7 to 13, on April 17, 1989.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Gregory Frost granted Lundgren's request for intervention based on his arguments that the current lethal injection protocols are insufficient to ensure that he will not suffer "excruciating and conscious pain."


"It cannot be established to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the drugs administered in the lethal injection process will adequately sedate this plaintiff," Lundgren's complaint states. "The current lethal injection process creates an unacceptable risk that he will not be anesthetized sufficiently to render him unconscious and unaware of the excessive pain during the duration of the execution."

Did he care about pain and suffering to his victims?
