Talking Dictionary 728. For Felon: Pain‐Free Farewell


728. "Listen to this," he told his wife. "Some guy murdered an entire family 15 years ago. Last night they were supposed to inject him with a drug to execute him for the murders. Instead, a lawyer stopped the execution because the injection might be painful for the murderer. What is this country coming to? Who cares if the murderer suffers a little pain? He outlived his victims by 15 years. Their friends and family have suffered daily for the last 15 years. But the lawyer's worried that this fiend might suffer for a whole minute or two? Who cares?" His wife said, "Well, he's going to suffer for eternity in hell, so maybe they want his last moment on Earth to be pain free." He said, "Well, if that's what they want, why bother with injections at all? All they need for 'pain free' is a rope—and a tree." 4.5
