Rolando Ruiz Executed

A hit man isn't exactly a sympathetic, but Justice Breyer dissented, continuing his concern for length of time on death row with solitary confinement tossed in (separate procedural claim was also made). A daughter of the victim noted: "It’s not going to bring her back, so it really doesn’t mean very much." Various people involved got life, one executed as a result of a killing of a police officer during an escape. One at least have received parole, so no "LWOP." Going to need to confine people long periods and few sentenced to die are executed. The escape therefore only takes us so far, beyond the inherent problems with the penalty.
