This Day in the History of Sad Ends

On this day in 2001, just after 7 am, Timothy McVeigh, the 1995 Oklahoma City bomber, was executed by lethal injection at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. McVeigh had won the bronze star during Gulf War I and was a good 25mm gunner in the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. He apparently turned later to the dark side.

His attorney, Nate Chambers, a good friend of this modest blog, was in attendance, at the request of his client.

I get mad at the government too from time to time, but I would never think to blow up a federal building with a truck full of ammonium nitrate and nitromethane.
