Ten minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this the fifth of February 24 team it is couldn't -- Oh goodness -- I guess it it's yeah and last week we had that -- angry and do Lance. And I were confused -- -- and while I got -- it's been hard to know what day it is. What month it is it would. And it's February now that query five days and you're you are absolutely rises that medal in the week that middle of the week -- -- Yeah. Maybe I can. Yeah I'll do fine. -- -- -- -- -- Love. -- -- -- -- Yours thank you Geico camel for his assistance in this matter -- -- on the water was the sleeping was so good this morning I can if it did this. -- threw off everything. Yet. -- I'll sleep better when apple or yachts on no question about that colder it is the better today to -- two goals and it's. The but I'm talking about knocked out honestly don't -- admitted it's taken me an hour just to come around. And I was like wow glad to them as driving hand. Noticing that these sneak. -- at the lines of clouds -- in between large patches of stars guys. Aren't. -- excuses here in the Louisiana today. Our laws yes but it's been delayed. By a promise. Occurring across the country. He's either shortage of the chemicals that have historically been used in the last few decades for lethal injection. War. There have been questions raised about the chemicals used in the methods used it. But it had court stepping anything maybe we should do this just yet it may be cruel -- news. So it's got states across the country now Louisiana Louisiana had been on the debate -- -- -- -- in the -- in golf take it takes years and years and it's night Texas -- in them they they fly through the process that the parlor street won here in Louisiana. That's been years it's anyone's been execute a lot of people on death row but. Very few executions. And now governor Bobby Jindal. Wants the legislature. In this upcoming session next month. To start looking at right back -- -- Do we go to -- gas chamber. In some states are looking at. Firing -- ya hangings. You know -- and I don't think anyone -- talking about decapitation with a guillotine mini golf and I just seems that we got to a point where we found a humane. The way I gas. Lethal injection that seem to be accepted for a long long time until there's the shortage of the chemicals. -- out that it which makes you wonder how much chemical do you need of these executions are pretty rare. You know it's like you would think. -- be run out of I guess now that profitable to make this stuff well no hard -- companies that are producing it. And so I don't know the answers there states need to start make it themselves or how that area state labs start making the chemicals and in the last one I guess -- Didn't go very well at least for reports again in Ohio yet that -- -- longer than expected like 25 minutes or something and apparently the inmate would. Frequently gasping her -- odd noises and tragically air if you was in pain and and I don't think. You know even the most a staunch advocates of the death penalty want -- necessarily. Just get it done not a some people who wish it were are you really take a lot of times Mary and or maybe you're right -- -- -- people who rape and murder children. Why kill ya why should they get a humane. Quiet slow you know just fall asleep and never wake up death and the one in Louisiana you as a unit convicted child killer believes. The well Texas we'll see what happens but this Texas is that thick -- to execute a woman today. Hope -- Suzanne. Costs that's for you were 59 would be to fourteenth woman nationally and this in taxes to die since the Supreme Court allowed capital punishment reason. So we'll see if that happens to taxes. But I guess my question for listeners is if not lethal injection what should -- to -- that Butler drive but he loves you yeah our lawmakers are gonna debate this. Should it be firing squad gas chambers they go back to the electric shares that's better than. That lethal injection that may take longer -- it. -- that he has I don't know. I've never been executed by the ostrich thing that matters I think of that movie green mile -- a little old Sparky your well or with him and it goes horribly wrong -- -- Ha that's on oh well or. So what's the what's that way to do it should be done at all these exit points of -- -- 689 theory that your text me. An 878. And gave it the early edition of WWL prisoners on this -- Happy to you and viewers will get Lauren here with your forecast right after this as we continues these things cool down for the next couple days then maybe law. As Steve Geller with sports with terrorism it with them at pelicans. Play let them. But. That was the early Texan getting -- 87870. Are pretty. I have read many radicals -- -- -- -- -- nine however they killed their victim. They convicted killer should be killed another says that the crime warrants starve them to death. Now does the same way they killed their victims and other one says some parts of the -- and hungry dogs. New Hampshire recruitment hungry Anthony wants them to that element. Okay. Yeah adults in those things happening as as. Public -- sell tickets. Would you buy a ticket to a public hanging. I wouldn't I never understood analyst at 520 but he too forecast. Breezy and chilly now that that cold front has moved through still hang on to some clouds this morning but those should eventually move out by the afternoon with some clearing skies and Temps in the mid fifties today. But tonight the clouds begin to work back again at temperatures dropping into the thirties on both sides of the lake. And tomorrow those clouds hang tight along with a 20% chance for a shower. Price tomorrow much cooler at 45. Or back to the fifties on Friday even though we keep those clouds. From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist Laura backed out. They're partly cloudy skies across the region now north winds at eight to fifteen miles an Howard's 47 degrees at the international airport in -- 47 degrees at the National Weather Service office in right now I'm -- going to the early edition of WW offers as another text message and it's 7870. As we discussed that the state of Louisiana and LB in the discussion of if not lethal injection then what is the best way to carry out the death penalty should have -- the electric chair of the gas chamber firing squad hanging. Some -- this family members of the victims should get accused of doing a lot of text messages with very radical ideas on how -- and the life of a convicted killer. What I'm more curious about it -- tournament the coming up is -- seriously of the methods that the courts will allow. Which do you think. Is the best the problem by the way Jordan and -- total additional research forces that the only place to get the chemicals used. In lethal injection historically in the US's from Europe. And the producers of the European producers are not selling them anymore because apparently they've decided that they'll want their chemicals used. And lives yeah. Maybe produced here. They're not that are out there who think that'd be good idea to make them here or maybe they left him. Steve guy can do sports with us here on this Wednesday morning and start to focus more on the -- -- I guess the big question I have is can't then make a run here to a successful season and maybe a playoff berth after such a difficult start. Or is all of this just kind of an exercise it for him. And with the time I guess the best way to put -- Well that's the goal right now -- this team they're not you know. Checking out of this season right now. He took all the players and playoffs are still on the month and they believe they can do with that'll get your panel that I you'd think they can do it after sport WW.

Several people that we should use heroin. For lethal injection well -- people are doing it themselves like right now in here Louisiana there are multiple deaths every week. Now from heroin overdoses and obviously it's been big in the news with -- Seymour Hoffman. And -- -- huge problem right now stronger than ever before. And containing some additives that are deadly and the people are dying every day from here. The -- people say that it. A lot of what death virus application you know whatever they did is how they should doubt yeah I'll turn it around through the sentence. Some summoned as serious as stated they think it should be by firing squad but it should be done with a robot. Doing the shooting that human while some of the gonna start the robot. And when they do a -- but he -- that five people doing it. At least one of them has a blanket no one knows who has the -- exactly who'd actually. Fired -- -- and try to make it is an easy on the shooters saw an interesting discussion areas.

I like the -- this morning he -- this from the cloud formations are arriving and I had to force myself to watch the road yet. At the -- in the that's pretty good idea out there and pretty quickly to edit re seen through with his north winds that can meet one. I'm laps and real yeah yeah. -- that it went well they I'll be out of here. You know they -- -- -- -- we get into the afternoon so most of the morning it's going to be cloudy I would say after lunchtime as the starts he's on -- right now -- when we get that you know we get to 55 which feels you know compared to several days it feels kind of -- but what we're going to see those winds still the risks to feel more like authorities today. Don't let that number pricey I'm guessing at 55 made -- feel much like -- -- restaurant management and haven't north right now about twelve miles an hour that could be a nasty later today it's not that's hurdler. Delve a little less than hurdler but it definitely makes -- -- or makes it uniquely -- and if you like -- this -- to do it while you're not dry patch writing that.

One person Dex and it's and it's that it does why does it have to be humane which they did -- victims. Have been there that. They're the killers the state is supposed to not be barbaric.
