So sad. He must feel so hopeless. You can read the article here.
Momma, Gary has wanted to die for a long time, and I believe he should be given that right. He would rather due than live the rest of his life in a screwed up justice system.

I do not want to sound rude or insensitive, but give the man what he wants. It is his loved ones that I am saddened for, not him. This is his choice to do this, nobody has forced or coerced him into it.

May Gary get his wish granted and put an end to his struggle with living the rest of his life in the ODOC.

I hope he is at peace with his decision, which from the interviews and such, he is.

Peace~

The story is here.
If I was in prison 30 years and knew I would never get out, I would possibly want the same thing. Prison is not a cake walk and to put up with all the shit they do day in and day out....NOT.

I am noticing these posts are old...oh well, I have shared my opinions anyway

Peace~

How desperate one must feel to prefere to die... This is really very, very sad!

Keep you in my thoughts and prayers, Mr. Haugen.

A state judge ruled on Friday that a death row inmate, Gary Haugen, has the right to reject Gov. John Kitzhaber’s decision not to execute him.

More here.

I know this is what Gary wants but I can't celebrate this ruling.

Neither can I, mammastalkin.

Here is some more news on Mr. Haugen's case:

In my opinion, I am hoping for Governor Kitzhaber to win his appeal against Judge Alexander's recent decision re: Mr. Haugen's wish to be executed. I believe he was correct to issue a moratorium on executions in Oregon last year.
