How to avoid the Death Penalty

Simply want to have your death penalty carried out...

It seems that Michael Ross hates being on death row (where he has been for 10 years) and wants his execution to be undertaken without delay. It is this, in part, which makes a U.S. judge want to hear more about his mental capacity, and has resulted in his scheduled execution being put on hold. In the U.S. mental illness prevents the death penalty, so Michael Ross might have to want to live in order for the state to execute him.

Ross would be the first person executed in New England in 45 years.

Is there something absurd about this line of thinking, or is it just me?
