    COLUMBUS, Ohio — At about 450 pounds, Ohio death row inmate Ronald Post is so fat that his executioners won't be able to find veins in his arms or legs for the lethal injection, and he might even break the death chamber gurney, his lawyers say. … ith-weight
    Although I am not mocking an obese man, I see a dangerous trend or precedent being set here if the govt grants him a stay for his weight. Perhaps others will follow in his footsteps to prevent their own punishment

      well......if he is too big....change the method for death - i can think of a few and faster methods; on  the other hand, i bet if he had a medical emergency right now, a vein would be found and a way to transport him (gurney) would be found as well.....excuses, excuses, excuses!....
