"Haugen, 49, essentially volunteered to die by lethal injection, waiving all further appeals of his death sentence.
Barring a change of heart, he will be the first Oregon inmate put to death since double-killer Harry Moore of Salem was executed in 1997."
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.
Be Real, Be You

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.
