Henry killed a 14-year-old girl. He killed her after breaking her thumbs, kicking and breaking most of her ribs, striking her repeatedly in the head with his thermos, and stabbing her more than 45 times with a #2 pencil. She bled to death. He killed her after he had kidnapped her and raped her repeatedly for four weeks. He had kept her in the basement of his parents' house. His parents had disappeared years ago.

The girl had been walking by the house when Henry invited her in to see some new puppies. The puppies were also found stabbed to death. Henry was caught, convicted, and sent to prison for the girl's brutal killing. He was sentenced to death by injection. That was 30 years ago. For the past 30 years, Henry has been fighting his death penalty. During that time, taxpayers have spent more than $30,000 a year on Henry's room and board, medical and dental care, and legal help.

A month ago, it looked like Henry was finally going to meet his Maker. But his lawyer filed one final argument, claiming that death by injection was quite painful; Henry shouldn't suffer in his final moments. One hour before Henry was scheduled to die, the California Supreme Court agreed; the drugs injected into Henry might cause him to suffer. Such suffering would be "cruel and unusual" punishment, a violation of the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Henry remained in his warm cell. He would die only when the state figured out a way to kill Henry without making him say "Ouch!"

The parents and siblings of the brutally murdered girl were not even surprised. Her dad said, "He'll die of old age in his sleep, and his survivors will collect a million-dollar settlement because the guard forgot to put a candy mint on Henry's pillow that night."

Làm ơn đừng làm tôi đau

Henry giết một bé gái 14 tuổi. Hắn giết cô sau khi bẻ gãy ngón cái, đá và bẻ gãy gần hết những xương sườn, đánh vào đầu cô bằng cái bình thuỷ của hắn, và đâm hơn 45 lần với bút chì số #2. Cô bé chảy máu đến chết. Hắn giết cô sau khi bắt cóc và hãm hiếp cô liên tục bốn tuần. Hắn giữ cô trong tầng hầm của nhà cha mẹ hắn. Cha mẹ hắn đã biến mất nhiều năm trước.

Cô bé đang đi dạo ngang nhà hắn và Henry mời cô vào xem mấy con chó con. Những con chó con cũng thấy bị đâm đến chết. Henry bị bắt, buộc tội và tống giam vì tội giết người dã man. Hắn bị tuyên án tội chết bằng tiêm thuốc độc. Đó là 30 năm trước. Trong 30 năm, Henry chiến đấu với hình phạt tử hình của hắn. Trong thời gian đó, những người đóng thuế phải trả hơn $30,000 một năm cho phòng của Henry và bồi thẩm đoàn, thuốc men và chăm sóc răng, và những giúp đỡ theo luật.

Một tháng trước, dường như Henry cuối cùng phải đi gặp người tạo ra hắn. Nhưng luật sư kiện lần cuối, nói rằng chết vì tiêm đau đớn; Henry không nên chịu đau khổ trong phút cuối. Một giờ trước khi Henry bị chết theo kế hoạch, toàn án tối cao California đồng ý tiêm thuốc có thể làm hắn đau đớn. Đau đớn như vậy có thể là hình phạt "ác độc và không bình thường", theo sửa chữa thứ Tám của điều luật Mỹ.

Henry sống sót. Hắn chỉ chết khi tiểu bang tìm ra cách giết hắn mà không làm hắn nói "Ouch!"

Cha mẹ và những nạn nhân của cô gái bị giết không ngạc nhiên. Cha cô nói "Hắn sẽ chết già trong giấc ngủ và những người cứu mạng hắn sẽ thu được cả triệu đô thanh toán vì nhân viên bảo vệ đã quên bỏ kẹo bạc hà trên gối của Henry tối hôm đó."

Henry đã giết một cô bé 14 tuổi một cách tàn bạo. Hắn giết chết cô sau khi bẽ gãy mấy ngón tay cái của cô, đá và bẽ gãy gần hết các xương sườn của cô, đánh vào đầu cô nhiều lần với cái phích nước và đâm cô hơn 45 lần bằng bút chì số 2 cứng nhất. Cô bị chảy máu cho tới chết. Hắn giết cô sau khi hắn bắt cóc cô và cưỡng hiếp cô nhiều lần trong vòng bốn tuần. Hắn giam giữ cô trong tầng hầm căn nhà của cha mẹ hắn. Cha mẹ hắn đã mất tích nhiều năm trước đây.

Cô bé đi ngang qua nhà lúc Henry mời cô vào nhà để xem mấy chú chó con mới sinh. Mấy chú chó con được tìm thấy cũng bị đâm đến chết. Henry bị bắt, bị kết án, và đưa vào tù vì đã giết cô gái tàn bạo. Hắn bị tuyên án tử hình bằng cách tiêm thuốc độc. Đó là chuyện 30 năm trước đây. Trong 30 năm qua, Henry đã đấu tranh chống lại bản án tử hình của mình. Trong thời gian đó, những người đóng thuế phải trang trãi hơn 30.000 đô-la một năm cho tiền phòng và tiền cơm tháng, chi phí y tế và nha khoa cùng chi phí trợ giúp về pháp lý của Henry.

Cách đây một tháng, có vẻ như cuối cùng thì Henry sắp phải về chầu Trời. Nhưng luật sư của hắn đã đệ trình một văn bản cuối cùng, tuyên bố rằng bản án tử hình bằng cách tiêm thuốc độc khá đau đớn; Henry không nên chịu đau đớn trong những khoảnh khắc cuối cùng của mình. Một tiếng đồng hồ trước khi Henry được sắp xếp để chết, Tòa án tối cao California nhất trí; các loại thuốc độc tiêm cho Henry có thể làm cho hắn đau đớn. Sự thống khổ như thế sẽ là một sự hành hạ "tàn bạo và khác thường", là sự vi phạm Tu Chính án lần thứ tám của Hiến pháp Hoa Kỳ.

Henry vẫn ở nguyên trong xà lim ấm áp của hắn. Hắn sẽ chết chỉ khi nào tiểu bang tìm ra được cách giết Henry mà không làm cho hắn kêu lên "Ối!"

Cha mẹ và anh chị em ruột của cô gái đã bị giết một cách tàn nhẫn thậm chí không cả ngạc nhiên. Cha cô nói, "Hắn sẽ chết già trong giấc ngủ, và những người còn lại của gia đình hắn sẽ nhận được một triệu đô-la tiền dàn xếp vì người bảo vệ quên để một cây kẹo bạc hà trên gối của Henry tối hôm đó."
