Two reports are prepared within three weeks of the established execution date. The first is 20 days before execution; the second is seven days before execution. Each report includes:
- Psychiatric report – Results and interpretation of examinations, interviews and history of the inmate by three psychiatrists which will be used to determine the inmate’s sanity.
- Chaplain report – Comments on the inmate’s spiritual and emotional well-being.
- Summary of behavior – Observations noted by case worker and custody staff.
- Cover letter from warden – Includes firsthand information from interviews, observations or communication with the inmate and his/her family or friends.
The seven day pre-execution report discusses any changes that have occurred since the first report.
Sanity Review Requests
Within 30 to seven days before the execution, the inmate’s attorney may submit current psychiatric information that may have a bearing on the sanity of the condemned inmate. This information will be provided to the panel of psychiatrists to consider in completion of the pre-execution psychiatric reports.
Guy swims through frozen waters to save his dog
You gotta put in a little more effort when you’re trying to pull off an insurance scam
This one goes out to all those nostalgic of the good ol’ days of wrestling. Post an old school wrestling clip that will bring us back to those days when we ate our cereal on Saturday mornings and anxiously waited for WWF wrestling to come on after the cartoons finished. I’ll start this sucker off with a few clips that totally defined my wrestling watching experience.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts lets a live cobra bite into Randy Savage
This seriously has to rank as one of the most epic WTF moments in TV history. A guy literally had a live king cobra with its giant fangs bite into another guy’s arm in front of a live audience, a good portion of which consisted of young children who weren’t quite sure if they’d just witnessed an actual murder.
Congratulations to Umer, you won the Shoyoroll Gi buddy! As a fellow jiu-jitsu practicioner, I felt his response best encapsulated the mental benefit that you receive when traiing.
For me, BJJ has helped me tap into a power within I’d never known before. Not the power to overcome others, but to overcome self. It hasn’t just been useful during fights/practices, it’s also been useful in real life on those days where you can’t seem to feel in control; that is until you learn to become mindful once again.
The biggest benefit for me? Mindfulness… There’s nothing like being one with your body, soul, and mind, and when that happens, you feel nothing outside controls you, you learn to see past the illusion of life’s struggles.
This one goes out to all the Jiu Jitsu loving folks out there. I’m giving away a Shoyoroll Absolute, size A1 Gi. It’s never been used, but it has been washed once. To win, all you have to do is comment on how Jiu Jitsu has benefited your life. One winner will be selected on Monday. Please note that I can only ship within the United States.
