There's only 42 more day left in the year. Now we're going into 2013,
and that means Mr. Archuleta will now have made it a quarter of a century since
he committed his brutal murder. I have a feeling that this guy will outlive me.
I'm 67 years old, and I figure I'll be dead in about 8 years, given
the average life span of American males is about 75 years. This situation is
pitiful, and it's going on all over the country. I was doing a little
research the other day about how long some of these death row inmates make it,
and I found one that shocked me. There's this guy in Florida named Gary
Alvord, and he's been on death row 38 years, since 1974. I have a feeling
Mr.Archuleta is going to try to beat his record.
How many more delays is this guy going to get? What seems to be the problem?
Is there any doubt that he committed the murder? Have his rights been violated?
The man has had 24 years since he committed his murder, and there's no
reason to continue delaying his execution. It's time the state followed
the law and imposed the sentence that the court ordered. Give him any choice of
execution he wants - hanging, electric chair, gas chamber, firing squad, lethal
injection, or even bring back the guillotine if it makes him happy.
