February 11, 2001:
The Sunday Oklahoman
published a letter (on Sunday!) by McVeigh
questioning the fairness of limiting the number of witnesses to his execution
. The Federal Bureau of Prisons
is considering a closed-circuit broadcast
to accommodate survivor
s and relative
s of victim
"Because the closed-circuit telecast of my execution raises these fundamental equal access concerns, and because I am otherwise not opposed to such a telecast, a reasonable solution seems obvious: hold a true public execution -- allow a public broadcast," he wrote.
"It has ... been said that all of Oklahoma
was a victim of the bombing
. Can all of Oklahoma watch?" he wrote.
A national broadcast
is not an option, Prison
bureau spokesman Dan Dunne
(what a name, can I buy one of those???) said.
"It hasn't been considered. It won't happen
," Dunne said.
McVeigh, will be executed May 16
by lethal injection
at the federal penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indianna
