Inmate on Death Row suspected of taking lethal injection of heroin
Nicholas Rodriguez, a 27-year-old Los Angeles gang member, was sentenced to die in 2001 for shooting two teenagers to death while fleeing a robbery and for strangling a fellow gang member and gouging out his eyes before dumping the body in a canyon.
While the clock ticked on his date with a lethal injection of potassium chloride, Rodriguez somehow managed to score enough drugs and the paraphernalia to get high.
Apparently a little too high. ...
Thanks senor. Probably the first time you've saved money in your, um, life.
Oh yeah - and we're apparently doing really well on that whole "War on Drugs" thing. In a maximum security prison, turn a trick for a toke, suck a dick for a poke. Say it all together now - it's a joke.
