The inmate who died of an apparent heart attack after a botched execution this week was Tasered the morning of his execution, and doctors inserted an IV to administer lethal drugs into his groin after being unable to locate a usable vein in his arms, legs or feet, authorities said Thursday.
Prisons chief Robert Patton also disclosed in a letter to Oklahomas governor that death-row inmate Clayton Lockett deliberately cut his right arm before sunrise Tuesday and refused to be restrained or to eat any food in the hours leading up to his death.

There’s no extra charge for that.
They shouldn’t be allowed to go easily into the night. Their victims weren’t.
What difference does it make. Shoot him in the head.
All the better. They should have thrown in some pepper spray and the police baton for good measure.
It was not a botched execution. They tried to kill him and succeeded.
I’d beat him to death with a baseball bat for what he did.
Oh well, he’s dead. Doesn’t sound like a botched execution to me. It achieved the intent, that’s all that matters.
The creep was simply trying to dehydrate himself (to “collapse” his blood vessels somewhat)—likely based upon advice advanced by some anti-capital punishment activists. The prison authorities need to be on the lookout for such tactics.
Meanwhile the MSM is lamenting his death and not the victim’s.
More bonus features. It gets better all the time!
One report said his veins exploded. How cool!!
I wonder, since he died from a heart attack, does the prison still get credit for an execution?
I love a happy ending!
“Theres no extra charge for that. Youre welcome.”
I was thinkin’ that if you take a life ON PURPOSE (accidents DO happen) you should die in the exact same manner in which your victim took his/her last breath.
Of course, I’m kinda mean that way... ;)
A very small portion of his karma caught up to him in this life.
I read earlier today that some states are thinking about firing squads or hanging.
put it live on TV so we get deterrence
Have a pay per view. Probably make a fortune.
The ultimate reality show.
