    Associated Press at Cincinnati.Com

    A barrage of bullets tore into Ronnie Lee's Gardner's chest where a target was pinned over his heart. Two minutes later an ashen Gardner, blood pooling in his dark blue jumpsuit, was pronounced dead at 12:17 a.m.

    No Great Lines like, "Let's do it" though...

    :)

    peace...

    If I remember right, one person fires a blank. It allows the executioners to say they didn't fire the fatal shot.

    "A barrage of bullets?" Do four bullets constitute a "barrage?"

    Apparently yes, when they "tore" into the target. The proper term is volley. The condemned should be thankful it was a volley.

    Yes. One bullet is considered "single". Two bullets is considered a "couple". Three bullets is considered a "few". And four or more bullets is considered a "barrage".

    Don't complain to me about it...complain to whomever wrote the Englich langwich.

    Wasn't he convicted in 1985?

    In my opinion, him sitting on deathrow for that long, wasting tax dollars on his appeals, is old school.. If he had been sentenced to life in prison, tax payers would have saved quite a bit of money..
    If you can find a cheaper system, I would support the death penality.. As of right now, I don't.
