TAMPA, Florida — A decorated Florida police officer who killed nine people during a crime spree after he was fired for lying is scheduled to be executed Tuesday night.
[...]Most of his victims were involved with drugs, officials said, and Pardo contended that he was doing the world a favor by killing them.
[...]Pardo insisted on testifying, telling jurors that he enjoyed killing people and wished he could have murdered more.
"They're parasites and they're leeches, and they have no right to be alive," he said in court. "Somebody had to kill these people."
