Posted on 04/24/2014 4:05:19 PM PDT by Second Amendment First
Oklahoma plans to hold its first double execution in nearly 80 years, Gov. Mary Fallin said Thursday.
The move comes a day after the state Supreme Court removed one of the final obstacles, ruling late Wednesday that Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner are not entitled to know the source of the drugs that will be used to kill them. The inmates had sought that information through a civil lawsuit.
"The defendants had their day in court. The court has made a decision," Gov. Mary Fallin said in a statement. "Two men that do not contest their guilt in heinous murders will now face justice, and the families and friends of their victims will now have closure."
The Oklahoma Supreme Court also dissolved a stay of execution it had issued earlier in the week in a sharply divided and much criticized 5-4 decision. Because the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has exclusive jurisdiction over criminal matters, Fallin and others accused the state's high court of initially overstepping its bounds.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections is working on specifics and logistics of how the April 29 executions will be carried out, Fallin said. The state has not executed two inmates on the same day since convicted murderers Charlie Sands and Leon Siler were electrocuted on June 11, 1937.
So, the logistical difficulty of two in one day is almost too much for American ingenuity? /S

Double gurney. Let them go together.
I love doubleheaders.....!!!!!
Double gurney—like a twin stroller, only larger.
not entitled to know the source of the drugs
Some “judge” allowed a delay for that? Did their victims get a delay to find out who manufactured their murder weapons?
Have one at 23:55 and the other at 00:05. Two different days, problem solved (whatever the problem was).
One of these scum balls raped an 11 month baby, They should him something special, like maybe Drano in the IV.
They should call up Lon Horuchi- he’s famous for two offers.
This time however, he’d actually be shooting criminals that is if they can pull the coward out of the bunker the slime has been hiding in for decades.
Give them a couple 8 balls of coke, on the main....watch their hearts blow outa their chests. They’ll be juking, and jumping a week dead.
That’ll give the MSM something to talk about;-)
Put them in a cage and tell them whichever kills the other first gets his sentence reduced to life in prison.
Cage Match PPV!!
