Bryant, 41, was convicted twice and sentenced to death in the June 2000 beating and shooting death of Horry County police Cpl. Dennis Lyden.

Execution for Bryant was set for Feb. 1, but he appealed to the U.S. District Court, where Judge Cameron McGowan Currie earlier this month granted his Bryant’s motion for a stay of execution, giving him until October to file a writ of certiorari.

I disagree with hanging them. That is too quick. I say beat them and shoot them first, just like he did to Corporal Lyden. If they want to consider it cruel and unusual punishment, then why did he do that to someone else!
