Michael Ryan in Nebraska is so horrifying, I couldn't believe it. I accidentally found the information while surfing for info on the women on death row. I became interested because he sounded so much like Manson and the girls. he lived tucked away from society with a group that looked up to him and prepared along with him for an Armageddon that was to begin in the form of a race war.
Hello Charlie...
But check this out from Wikipedia:

 Ryan was arrested in 1982 after reports, and a criminal investigation indicated that he had abused and killed 5 year old Luke Stice, and later killed fellow member James Thimm, after he had tortured him for several days, beating him, forcing him to have sex with a goat, then skinning him alive and raping him with a shovel before finally beating him to death.[1]
Ryan was tried, convicted and sentenced to death on 12 September 1985. Ryan claims to have been in direct contact with God and vowed to spend his days in prison rewriting the Bible, but since has recanted on both. Ryan is currently held in Tecumseh State Correctional Institutionon death row.The Nebraska Supreme Court has set a March 6,2012 execution date for Ryan.
If they do execute him, and it looks like it will be this year. It will be Nebraska's first execution since the 90's and the first since they decided that the electric chair was inhumane.
