Letter: A 'job well done'

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Job well done, state of Ohio.

“The family is deeply disturbed by the execution, which it believes violated (Dennis McGuire’s) constitutional rights” (Enid News & Eagle, P.A7, Jan. 17, 2014; “Killer’s execution takes almost 25 minutes”).  

Almost 25 years ago, he raped and then fatally stabbed to death a pregnant newlywed, Joy Stewart.

One minute of sedated discomfort for each year that he outlived his victims does not a violation make.
