Killing Kelly - Mother Nature Puts in Her Two Cents

Kelly Gissendaner

It seems Mother Nature has said Hell No to executing Kelly Renee Gissendaner.

Hours before her scheduled execution, the DOC announced scheduling complications due to weather called for a postponement of the execution until Monday.

According to CNN, the DOC spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan said in an email, "due to weather and associated scheduling issues," they had to reschedule. Did mother nature snow in the executioner? Was there a power outage to old sparky? Did the FedEx truck driver carrying the killer drugs veer off the icy road and plunge to his own unnatural death?

How cruel it is to have this woman prepare for her death, eat her last meal, say her last words and then hours before the moment, claim a scheduling SNAFU and give her a few days more? How sick is that? Kelly will die Monday, while Greg Owen, the man who beat her husband with a nightstick and stabbed him in the neck 10 times lives on.
