Personally, for all I care, they could have injected this SOB with battery acid and watched him squirm for a few hours.
The perp buried his victim alive.
Who cares how much he suffers. BURY HIM ALIVE.
Doesn’t anyone make guillotines anymore?
May I ask why?
Why doesn’t Oklahoma
Just “Hang ‘em high?”
One .45 hollow point in the back of the skull will do it in seconds, costs .50 cents, and achieves the same result.
I have .40 cal hollow-points. Pretty sure they would work. That is, unless I missed with the first 4 or 5 shots...
I believe he got justice...when you look at his crime, he deserved every bit of it.
We could have hung or electrocuted him.
As Judge Roy Bean was fond of saying, west of the Pecos, “Some folks need killin’.”
No...he shot her with a shotgun, then buried her alive.
He’s got eternity to think about the pathetic decisions that he made in life.
This was supposed to b a double-execution. The first one in 80 years, or something like that. It has been all over the news here cuz the thugs attorney’s have tried everything to delay it. They were supposed to kill another guy who raped and murdered his girlfriend’s 11 MONTH old baby. Unfortunately they did not get to him!
As the saying goes:
“God works in strange and mysterious ways.”

Leftists love murderers and despise their bourgeois victims.
“Doesnt anyone make guillotines anymore?”
Why spend the taxpayers money on executions?

The Tubby Leader in NK uses flamethrowers as his execution method of choice.
From the movie The Green Mile when the warden asks Hank’s character with the execution of the Frenchie character; paraphrased)
“What in the hell just happened here?”
Hanks replies, “We had a successful execution.”
Warden: “You call this successful?”
Hanks: “He’s dead isn’t he?”
Gee and there was a news item about Egypt sentencing 683 people to death at a mass trial and these attorneys are complaining about one slight misstep.
I’d suggest heroine... it seems to work. It has worked well for several celebrities. Also, the prison system would be able to obtain it from local law inforcement after drug busts on the cheap. It’s a win-win.
I just watched Green Mile again on Monday. Oops, forgot to wet the sponge.
"Man dies of heart attach during botched execution..."
I thought that was the whole idea? You got the results you wanted, so what's the freaking issue?
Worse happens to good people every day during successful medical procedures.
I have just listed Clayton Lockett and his friends in my file on Hate Crimes.
If I believed in Hell, I would consign them there, along with the two Conneticut parolees,( Joshua Komisarjevsky, 26, and Steven Hayes, 44) who raped and killed the two women they during a house invasion.
