Default Texas dad who killed daughters while on phone with estranged wife taunts her at execu

This is one of the most disturbing murders I've ever come across.

How in the name of fuq can you do that to your own children.

Texas dad who killed daughters while on phone with estranged wife taunts her at execution | Fox News

Quote:
According to prosecutors, Battaglia became enraged that Pearle notified police about his harassment of her and he used a visit with their daughters to act on his anger. Pearle returned a call from one of her daughters and heard Faith pleading with her father, who put the call on speakerphone.

"No, daddy, please don't, don't do it!" Faith begged.

Pearle yelled into the phone for the children to run, then heard gunshots.

"Merry ... Christmas," Battaglia told Pearle, the words of the holiday greeting derisively divided by an obscenity.

There were more gunshots. Pearle called 911.

At the time of the killings, Battaglia was on probation for a Christmas 1999 attack on Pearle. His profanity-laced Christmas greeting to Pearle was an apparent reference to that.

Faith was shot three times, Liberty five. Hours later, Battaglia was arrested outside at a tattoo shop where he had two large red roses inked on his left arm to commemorate his daughters. It took four officers to subdue him. A fully loaded revolver was found in his truck and more than a dozen firearms were recovered from his apartment.
Quote:
Asked by the warden if he had a final statement, the inmate replied: "No," then changed his mind. "Well, hi, Mary Jean," he said, looking and smiling at his ex-wife. "I'll see y'all later. Bye."

Battaglia then closed his eyes and looked directly up. A few seconds later he opened them back up and lifted his head. "Am I still alive?" he asked.

The powerful sedative pentobarbital began to take effect. "Oh, I feel it," he said. He gasped twice and started to snore. Within the next few seconds, all movement stopped.

The time of death: 9:40 p.m., local, 22 minutes after the lethal dose began.

Pearle turned away from an execution-viewing window after Battaglia stopped breathing and walked to the back of the witness area.

"I've seen enough of him," she said. She returned several minutes later to watch as a physician examined Battaglia and pronounced him dead. Pearle declined to be interviewed afterward.

And the bleeding hearts have the audacity to inject the slimeball with "merciful" drugs that don't hurt.

Yea, I was thinking about this when I heard it. He should have been made to suffer for this horrendous crime. The movie "Law Abiding Citizen" comes to mine.

One very sick person, and his daughters paid the price, and the mother continues to.

An injection of Drano would have been appropriate, and cheaper too....

I'd be down for tying him up and severely beating him for an hour every day for the rest of his life.

But he would need food to stay alive, and unless he was fed pig slop for the rest of his miserable life, then it was a waste of good food. Plus the expense of whomever was providing the beatings.

I don't really think like this - removing the person from the world of the living is sufficient, and lets at least a little of the healing for those he damaged to begin.

But he would be taking up oxygen.
