THE WAGES OF MURDER IS DEATH..

The media seem ever so upset about this;

“Oklahoma last night botched the execution of a death row inmate.  The execution of Clayton Lockett, who was sentenced to death for shooting a 19-year-old Perry woman and watching his friends bury her alive, was halted about 20 minutes after the first of three experimental drugs was administered.  He received the entire cocktail of injections – which had never been tried in Oklahoma before – but for some reason the drugs didn’t kill him. Oklahoma Department of Corrections director Robert Patton said the inmate was writhing on the gurney and shaking uncontrollably about 13 minutes into the execution.”

I am with the parents of 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman, the girl that Lockett shot and then watched being buried alive, who pronounced themselves content that justice has been done. I am just not that bothered that this murderer had to suffer more than expected. Maybe the very fact he had to endure extra agony may deter others from setting out to take innocent life.  I stand with the victims, not the culprit.

  1. Justice has to be done. Had the State system of execution worked properly he would have had a quick death.
    Which is more than what his victim got.

    Were I a pink and fluffy Anglican I might say we should forgive but I’m not. Only God and the girl could do that.

  2. he should have been hung, and it should have been done in the the town square.

    Hanging or the electric chair is how an execution should be carried out. None of this painless put a dog to sleep injection crap.

    If you earn a death sentence in todays society there should be a nice ghastly death waiting for you.

  3. Crazy America.
    This is not execution, it’s extermination.

    Hanging has long been known to be the fastest and most ‘humane’ form of execution.

    Why this obsessive clinging to electricity or chemicals??
    It’s totally irrational.

  4. He received the entire cocktail of injections – which had never been tried in Oklahoma before – but for some reason the drugs didn’t kill him.

    The state can be safely relied on to cock up absolutely everything it touches.

  5. Why not just bash his brains in? That would send a message.

  6. When the human body is confronted by extreme danger the autonomic nervous system kicks in and the superficial blood vessels rapidly contract, confining the circulation to the vital organs like the brain and heart.
    (This is why people go white with fright)

    Why these state department doctors don’t understand this natural defence mechanism, can only be put down to incredible stupidity or ignorance.

    I wouldn’t have thought it was stupidity or ignorance. They will be properly trained doctors.

  8. Those who oppose capital punishment stand as a squarely with the victim as those who support it. Does a person’s compassion for a victim increase by the level of punishment they wish visited upon the killer? Only a childish mind would think so.

    I agree that if capital punishment is to be applied, trying to sanitize it with lethal injection seems almost hypocritical.

    If applied, it should be applied justly and not wrongly. I shed no tears for this murderer. Karma certainly came along and took a large bite out of his ass. The issue is not him, but rather the failure of the process itself, which should offend one’s notion of just punishment. There has been much written of states buying drugs for these executions from rather dubious places. If one supports capital punishment, then they should want it done in a just manner.
