A botched execution in Oklahoma has become the latest in a string of incidents raising questions about the drugs being used and the constitutional protection against cruel and unusual punishment.

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.”
For details of Clayton’s sense of humor, see:
Leftists love murderers and despise their bourgeois victims.
“Doesnt anyone make guillotines anymore?”
Why spend the taxpayers money on executions?
Have an ‘Organ Auction’ and then auction the remains - it will be a bidding battle between ALPO and local hog farmers.
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.
I was a Prosecutor for 25 years, and I prosecuted death penalty cases (won them all) and calls of torturing these “people” is disgusting.
We are a system of laws. I am astonished that those that have such respect (conservatives) for the rule of law and, rightly so, call out the Libs for their lawlessness and call for this? What are we to become, tribes run by warlords? We are a civilization, not a rabble. Wanna be a rabble? See how long America, or any State, lasts.
Furthermore, one should be troubled with an out of control State having the power to kill it’s own citizens. Add to that the fact that we know with 100% certainty that innocent people are executed in America (sure sounds like Islam to me) and, at a minimum, the use of capital punishment should give Conservatives pause.
We are the keeps of civilization. We should act as such.
Nitrogen gas will kill someone and it doesn’t even trigger gasping and hard breathing. Bring back the gas chamber.
HORROR: Oklahoma inmate dies after execution botched...
Yes, a female hero like Xena, Warrior Princess, could come up with her sword and cut the criminal's head off.
How many of your death penalty cases resulted death to the murderers?
“Furthermore, one should be troubled with an out of control State having the power to kill its own citizens.”
We can agree on that ...... got anyone in mind?
Liberals should have no problem with using whatever drugs they administer in Europe to euthanize people inconvenient to the state. After all, they are Europeans and so much more evolved. Perhaps the “euphoria” of starvation would be more to their satisfaction. It was good enough for Terri Schiavo.
How did they botch it? Did the guy live?
Smith & Wesson manufactures a reusable, reliable, efficient, and relative inexpensive injection device and the dose delivered cost less than fifty cents each.
Gravity and piano wire; works every time.
Personally I believe in “suicide” chambers. The condemned spends the rest of his life on death row, waiting for his sentence to be executed. During the waiting period, the condemned can place his head against a pane of glass, push a button and a bullet will be discharged into his brain. The chamber is constructed in a way where there can be no accident. Only the condemned can set the suicide in motion.
This way the condemned repents by taking his own life.
oops spell check is my new friend.
