Paul Warner Powell to get the chair on July 14th.

He asked for it and we’re more than happy to oblige (via Richmond Times-Dispatch):

Paul Warner Powell, set to be executed July 14 for the 1999 slaying of a 16-year-old girl, has chosen electrocution as his means of death.

An avowed racist, Powell fatally stabbed Stacie Lynn Reed in her Manassas-area home after the two argued about her black boyfriend.

Powell’s lawyers have filed a clemency petition with Gov. Timothy M. Kaine and could still ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal.

RT-D fails to mention the several other crimes he was convicted of, including attempted rape, rape, attempted capital murder, abduction, and grand larceny.

May he burn in hell.

    I have known Paul Powell since I was about 12. I knew he had problems back then, I wrote him while he was in Springwood psychiatric facility. When I first heard about this I guess I was like 17 or 18 and hadn’t seen or heard from him in years. I must say it came as a bit of a shock to me, he always was joking around and playful. I don’t condone what he did at all.
    I have a black fiance. I have mixed feelings on all of this. I don’t really know why I am really writing this. My only hopes are that Paul has found Jesus somewhere amongst this all. I am sorry that all these lives were ruined so early in life. May GOD have mercy………. but I know I have no right to judge…………..

    Mr. Powell will receive justice from the court and mercy from god if he has accepted Christ as his lord and savior.

    he should die, but for a racist like him, he shouldn’t get the chance to seek mercy from God. Jason, you are a lonely virgin twit – grow up.

    Paul Warner Powell deserves to be tortured and then executed with a katana sword.
