As described in last week's column, The New York Times and other sanctimonious news outlets censored details about the crime that put Clayton Lockett on death row, the better to generate revulsion at his deserved execution. You might say they buried the facts alive.
For example, the Times neglected to mention anything about the raping that preceded the murdering, which seems odd for a newspaper so consumed with the "War on Women." (At least Lockett never refused to pay for a woman's birth control pills!)
The Times also dropped the part about Lockett's dangerous behavior while incarcerated, such as ordering hits on the witnesses against him, his threats to kill prison guards, and the bounty of homemade weapons seized from him in prison -- saw blades, sharpened wires, shivs and shanks. (Old Times motto: "All the News That's Fit to Print." New Times motto: "Nobody Likes a Rat.")
The newspaper also failed to report that Lockett had ended up in an adult prison by the age of 16 and then was convicted of four more felonies before committing the torture-murder of Stephanie Neiman that sent him to death row.
No, that information might distract from the Times' florid descriptions of Lockett's execution.
Bless their hearts, they gave it their all, but even the Times could not make Lockett's "botched" execution sound particularly grisly. Here is the paper's full, terrifying description:
"According to an eyewitness account by a reporter for The Tulsa World, Mr. Lockett tried to raise himself up, mumbled the word 'man,' and was in obvious pain. Officials hastily closed the blinds on the chamber and told reporters that the execution had been stopped because of a 'vein failure.' But at 7:06, the inmate was pronounced dead of a heart attack."

This guy intentionally dehydrated himself so his venous system would collapse and not transport the drugs.
It almost worked
There was more media outrage for Donald Sterling’s words than Clayton Lockett’s vicious violence.
We’ve reached the point where thought crimes are far worse than violent crimes.
We’ve also reached the point where your race/sex/religion can be used to excuse you from culpability, or be used as proof of guilt.
In our government’s eyes, if you are a law-abiding believer in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, you are far more of a threat than the thousands of murdering, raping, stealing illegals they just released.
Here is a suggestion: why don’t we have a death penalty opponent board one of these savages following his release from prison, whenever that may be, should he get clemency.
Was what’s her name still at the Times when they reported like this and did she object ? Seems like a good rummor to start....
Yes, yes; something appealing 'bout that...
Welcome to Acirema, where the guilty are rewarded and the innocent punished.
Welcome to Acirema, where respectable society chooses sex offenders, perverts and thieves to “represent” them in government.
Let’s change the meme on this and start calling it retroactive abortion no one can deny society’s right to an abortion.
