The only thing remarkable about this scheduled execution is…it is the last for 2014 and will make the tenth this year, with the next one scheduled for 14 Jan 15.
For Paredes it is farewell to bad news. There will be no more murders(involved in 5 that we know of), no more burning of bodies(4 that we know of), no more drive by shootings, no more shooting and wounding, no more DUI, no more kidnapping, no more criminal trespass and no more unlawfully carrying a firearm. It took his enthusiastic involvement in the murder of three rival gang drug dealers to bring him to justice.
Sometime after 6p.m. Central time, Paredes will cease to exist, he will shuffle off from this mortal coil, he will be NO MORE.
