Here is a story about a guy who knew how to die like a man.
I remember when this happened. It was one of the most horrific murders in a long time because of the savagery and brutality involved. I'm not going to go into the details but suffice it to say that if there was a ever a crime that deserved the death penalty it was this one. There was also absolutely no doubt that Derrick Sean O'Brien killed these two girls.
Holy Cow, look at how this guy behaved at the end. I'd read somewhere that he'd become a Christian in jail. Lots of prisoners do or claim to have religious conversions and I normally pass it off as an attempt to gain an early parole. However, to look the family members of the girls he raped, sodomized, tortured, and killed in the face, apologize to them, admit that this was the worst thing he'd ever done and then to lie down on the table and let the prison officials administer the lethal drugs WITHOUT being restrained, that took courage.
RIP Derrik. You died a better man than you lived.
Until Next Time
