Ga. inmate dies in videotaped lethal injection

• AP

A Georgia man convicted of killing his parents and sister was executed Thursday after the courts allowed what experts say is the nation's first video-recorded execution in almost two decades.

Andrew DeYoung, 37, received a lethal injection Thursday night at the state prison in Jackson after courts turned down his appeals.

A videographer with a camera on a tripod stood about 5 feet away from the gurney inside the execution chamber.

When will the senselessness end? It is never ok to kill someone, especially whn the gubament says to this poor mans constitutional rights were violated and I as a card carrying libertarian oppose such horrid displays of badness.
