A federal judge said on Monday that an Ohio death row inmate weighing more than 450 pounds cannot be given a stay of execution because of his obesity.
Ronald Post, 53, is scheduled to be executed January 16 for the 1983 aggravated murder of hotel clerk Helen Vantz in Elyria, Ohio.

How long did he give his victims?
All that time in jail and they couldn’t slim him down a bit.
Didn’t realize you got seconds of prison chow
(Didn’t think anyone would want seconds of prison chow)
They should hang him instead.
His weight would actually contribute to a quick death.
Maybe they were trying to execute him by using obesity, hoping he would eat enough to explode.
IMO they should have put this a-hole on a diet until he got down to proper execution weight.
Death-camp-diet always works. They were overfeeding him, obviously!
One balogna sandwich per day and he would have lost weight in 15 years, guaranteed!
A few bullets would do the trick.
Just quit feeding him. Give him all the water he wants.
he still has time to lose some weight before the execution
Kill the lawyers first. 'nuff said.
His delay in meeting his Maker is near 30 years late. No need in letting another year or so pass.
Give him enough to kill an elephant just to make sure.
With prison privileges, bought candy at the prison store and gained so much weight that he sued the state saying his hanging would actually decapitate him. Cruel and unusual etc. He won and went on the back burner.
The state then instituted lethal injection, got a new sentence hearing asking for same. They won and that was the end of him.
Took over 20 years, sadly.
How did this guy get/remain so fat in the prison diet?
The kind of long painful lingering death these lawyers want for a fetus about to be aborted. What was its time allowed in the womb? Less than eight months? And this creep has been on death row kept there by his lawyers for how long, exactly??
Sounds like just a “waffer thin mint” might do the trick.
Even more time post execution (the ultimate weight loss program).
Reminds me of the “a thin mint” Monty Python” skit . . . awesome . . . one thin mint would detonate this tub of lard.
Actually, I’d like to know how this moose gets that much to eat from our tax-dollar-supplemented food supply. Shouldn’t someone years ago have stopped letting this pig eat from such a large trough? Really . . . I’d like to know just how much food is available to the inmates.
Nitrogen Asphyxiation - medical breathing mask hooked up to a tank of 99% pure nitrogen. Add a brain activity monitor and turn on to 1.1 atmospheres. Then wait till there is no more brain wave activity.
Economical - A large tank of nitrogen is less than $100 and you can get several uses out of one tank
Clean - no gore, blood or other body fluids involved
Painless - the condemned falls asleep in a few seconds with no feeling of suffocation.
Lawyers are just doin’ their job, trying to get the best outcome for their clients. Guilty or innocent would you want your lawyer to do less?
Your Honor, I wish to petition the court to delay the execution of my client as his poor physical condition puts him at risk of dying.
By January the wolves in The Rockies are getting a bit delegate for game. Paint him with gravy and let’s see if he can outrun them
> Buy some ham or bologna (one pack) and some bread (one loaf) and buy a little jar of mustard. Then you make yourself a bologna sandwich. Put the bread down on the table, put the bologna on it. Spread the mustard on the bologna. Put another piece of bread on the bologna, then eat it with some milk. Then clean up.
Apologies for the vulgarity, but hang his fat ass.
Delegate s/b desperate
Darned auto correct
Queequeg volunteers for the job.
My guess would be he’s been buying up lots and lots of goodies from the commissary. From what I’ve read, most prisons have a canteen or other store where you can buy things like ramen noodles, snacks, etc. They’re paid for through an account funded either by your prison job wages or (more often) by friends and family who put money in it for you. Post has probably been stuffing his face with as much as he can afford to buy from the place.
Funny how Mooseshell makes our active teen athletes starve in school lunches, but allows death-row inmates gorge themselves.. WOW
Supersize the electric chair.
Seriously, he wasn’t too fat to commit murder, he’s not too fat to pay the penalty.
I was talking to a guy who runs a crematorium furnace. He said they tried to burn a fat guy thinking it would just take longer. Wrong. He said the liquified fat poured out of the oven and flooded the room, and the chimney caught on fire and smoked like a volcano. Half the town showed up thinking there was a pig roast. They sub out the fat ones now.
Yep. Nitrous Oxide is often the preferred method of suicide for Dentists. Painless. They are usually found in the patients’ chair with the mask on.
Hey, Hey, Hey dat aint fair, dey be descriminating against us heavy folk, I’m Fat Albert and me and the gangs gunna protest!
His weight would actually contribute to a quick death.
That brings to mind the case of Saddam Hussein's half-brother Barzan Ibrahim al-Hasan al-Tikriti. As recorded in the Wikipedia:
On January 15, 2007, he was hanged for crimes against humanity. The rope decapitated him because wrong measurements were used in conjunction with how far he was dropped from the platform.
So, I guess you could say, Saddam's half brother ended up as two quarter brothers.
Piano wire noose. Vertical victim guillotine.
