    Outrage Over Botched Execution

    http://apnews.myway.com/article/2014...4de86edee.html

    McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — A botched execution that used a new drug combination left an Oklahoma inmate writhing and clenching his teeth on the gurney Tuesday, leading prison officials to halt the proceedings before the inmate's eventual death from a heart attack.
    Clayton Lockett, 38, was declared unconscious 10 minutes after the first of the state's new three-drug lethal injection combination was administered. Three minutes later, though, he began breathing heavily, writhing, clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head off the pillow.
    The blinds were eventually lowered to prevent those in the viewing gallery from watching what was happening in the death chamber, and the state's top prison official eventually called a halt to the proceedings. Lockett died of a heart attack a short time later, the Department of Corrections said.
    "It was a horrible thing to witness. This was totally botched," said Lockett's attorney, David Autry.
    Why is this a topic? This curr Lockett is a four time felon who shotgunned a 19 year old woman and than forced her friends to bury her alive. Why in the world would anyone worry how painful or gruesome his death is? Our society should not being taking the side of a total loser like Lockett over that of the pain and gruesome murder of his 19 year old victim.

    I see your point but the states are held to higher standards than those they are trying to put out of business. This execution drug issue has been around for some time now, particularly for the Okies.

    Prisoners apparently insist on knowing who manufactures the drugs. Is this a form of intimidation? Perhaps it is an attempt by the anti death penalty folks to try and outlaw executions? No doubt it is also a racist thing, given the large number of death row prisoners who are black.

    I think they need to feed the sobs to the sharks or take them up in a chopper and drop them. Five thousand feet should do it.

    I don't think it's so much that they're worried about the criminal suffering

    as they are with the traumatic shock others might go through

    watching what amounts to torture and a slow death.

    It's to shock the lily-livered into supporting their agenda of abolishing capital punishment.

    Notice they don't account what went through that young woman's life and mind her last hour. No-no-NO, that's NOT FAIR!

    The problem we have with capital punishment is, we don't have enough of it; it's not public enough or painful enough or fast enough. IMHO, it should be the morning after sentence is passed; this after a trial days after the charge is filed.

    Swift, sudden, and certain - makes capital punishment a TRUE deterrent to homicide.

    For what he did to that young woman, if I had the power to execute this scum I would have buried him up to his neck and than let him watch as the tracks of a bulldozer came closer and closer to his head.

    Here is where I take major flack...I am opposed to the death penalty. I feel for anyone who has to suffer, good or bad people. Punishment shouldn't be death, that is an escape from punishment. Murderers should get Life with no luxuries at all, just 3 meals a day...no books, no tv, no letters, no cigarettes, no contact with anyone but guards and never parole. They should spend the remainder of their life thinking about what they did.
