GENEVA (AP) The United Nations human rights office says U.S. death row inmate Clayton Lockett's suffering during his botched Oklahoma execution this week may amount to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment under international human rights law.
A spokesman for the office, Rupert Colville, says Lockett's prolonged death on Tuesday is "the second case of apparent extreme suffering caused by malfunctioning lethal injections" reported in the United States this year, after Dennis McGuire's execution in Ohio on Jan. 16 with an allegedly untested combination of drugs.
Colville told reporters Friday in Geneva that "the apparent cruelty involved in these recent executions simply reinforces the argument that authorities across the United States should impose an immediate moratorium on the use of the death penalty and work for abolition of this cruel and inhuman practice."
So throw Oklahoma out of the UN. That’ll teach ‘em!
Up yours, UN. Scumbag got less than he deserved. And by the way, Oklahoma is your moral superior, you statist thugs.
There seems to be some massive belief in one central US federal policy by everyone...on everything. The blunt truth is that there’s fifty different policies, on countless issues, and when you address “US”....it means United States, not OSA (One-State-America).
Meanwhile, none of this does anything to enhance Oklahoma’s reputation as a destination for medical tourism.
Oh my? Oklahoma will no longer have to pay its share of the millions that the USA fritters away on the bogus UN each year? Bummers!
The executed was a total demon , burying his wounded victim alive.His karma simply ripened, and he deserved every ounce of hell he got.
Uh, so in the UN’s eyes raping and stabbing a pregnant woman to death is not inhumane. Sorry, he had it far better. I couldn’t care less about any “suffering” he experienced.
Well, yes. A person seeking assisted suicide would probably want to go elsewhere.
But I guess the muzzie way of whacking off heads and extremities is peachy keen?
HEY, un DIPSTICKS GO F-YOURSELF!!!
What about the ragheadgoathumpingcamelrapingchopoffyourheadbecause [insert warped reason here] A$$holes?
Go pick nits with them!!!
HERE we go!!
Every ounce of hell he GOT? I believe there is more to come.
Fine just take all the fun out of My post;(
Ooook-lahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the needle blows out from the vein.
the council needs to be quiet or it will be guilty of the capital crime of interfering with the Oklahoma death penalty.
They feel safe in Geneva, but perhaps, should not.
BUahahahahahahahahaha! FIRST GUT LAUGH OF THE DAY!
I do think yours is much better! :)
Acceptable to the UN.... put a lit tire around his neck or cut off his head?
Please, please, please. Kick the United States out of the UN.
