    Calling the Oregon lawyers who want to save his life “tree huggers,” a death row inmate is asking a judge to waive all his appeals and to proceed with his execution.

    “It's probably breaking so many hearts to have to come in here over and over and over when we need to take care of this,” inmate Gary Haugen said earlier this year, according to the Los Angeles Times. “You know, we need to put this to sleep. That's probably the wrong expression.”

    If Haugen gets his way, his execution would be Oregon's first in 14 years, and a psychologist testified Tuesday that he's competent to make the decision to accept that fate.

    The Times reported that Haugen pleaded guilty in 1981 to beating his former girlfriend’s mother to death, purportedly because the woman tried to convince her daughter to have an abortion. Haugen was given a life sentence at the age of 19.

    But around 2003, Haugen and another inmate killed another prisoner by stabbing him 84 times and crushing his skull. Haugen and accomplice Jason Brumwell killed the inmate because they mistakenly believed he snitched to corrections officers about their use of drugs, authorities said.

    ..............

    In May, when a judge asked Haugen if he understood the effect of the death sentence, Haugen responded, “Well, one of them will be that we'll never have to have this conversation again,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

    Kinda refreshing to see something like this. A murderer with integrity.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    There was a guy on Lock Up who was on Death Row for killing his family. He said, "I'm not going to start opposing the death penalty just because it's being applied to me."

    Amazing.
