In Cold Blood

...till Andy's heart stopped beating.
For Andy, the waiting was over.
Perry and Dick waited five years.
Three times their case went
to the United States Supreme Court.

My God! That harness!
Richard, this is a warrant from
the Supreme Court of the State of Kansas.

''Whereas, it was by this court ordered...
''...that execution of the sentence of death
by hanging of Richard Eugene Hickock...

''...imposed by the District Court
of Finney County, Kansas...

'' carried out on Wednesday,
April 14, 1965.

''Commanding the warden
of the Kansas State Penitentiary...

'' carry the sentence into execution.''
Where's Smith?
''Yea, let none that wait for thee
be ashamed.

''Let them be ashamed
which transgress without cause.

''Show me thy ways, O Lord,
teach me thy paths.

''Lead me in thy truth, and teach me,
for thou art the God....''

I gotta go to the toilet.
We can't remove the harness.
There might not be time.

Try to control yourself.
But that's it.
When you hit the end of the rope
your muscles lose control.
