The Ohio diet

August 6, 2008

A new one for the “cruel & unusual” file:

A death row inmate scheduled for execution in October says he’s so fat that Ohio executioners would have trouble finding his veins and that his weight could diminish the effectiveness of one of the lethal injection drugs.

[. . .]

The lawsuit, filed Friday in federal court in Columbus, also says prison officials have had difficulty drawing blood from Cooey for medical procedures. Cooey is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 267 pounds, according to the lawsuit.

Bet with exercise and the right diet, he could lose 40 pounds by October. He has an incentive to get healthy!
