McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — A botched execution that used a new drug combination left an Oklahoma inmate writhing and clenching his teeth on the gurney Tuesday, leading prison officials to halt the proceedings before the inmate's eventual death from a heart attack.

 

 

No doubt the anti death penalty crowd will be up in arms over this one.

Of course there is this: A four-time felon, Lockett was convicted of shooting 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman with a sawed-off shotgun and watching as two accomplices "buried her alive" in rural Kay County in 1999 after Neiman and a friend arrived at a home the men were robbing.


So, before he bought the farm, I do hope he suffered the torments of the damned.

Neiman was forced to watch as Lockett's accomplice, Shawn Mathis, spent 20 minutes digging a shallow grave in a ditch beside the road. Her friends saw Neiman standing in the ditch and heard a single shot.

Lockett returned to the truck because the gun had jammed. He later said he could hear Neiman pleading, "Oh God, please, please" as he fixed the shotgun.

The men could be heard "laughing about how tough Stephanie was" before Lockett shot Neiman a second time.

"He ordered Mathis to bury her, despite the fact that Mathis informed him Stephanie was still alive."

A 45ACP to the brain pan would not fail like that. Nor a 357Mag, 44Mag, or any number of calibers widely available today.

 

And the money saved. Or even one of those slaughter house pneumatic dispatchers.

Too bad Lockett wasn't killed in exactly the same way he killed her.

He DIED, the execution was carried out.

So what is the problem????

was he in any way worried about the agony of his victim?

He got off easy, compared to what his victim went through. :)

THAT would be tooooo quick.

How about a shot through the spinal cord, about neck-level, and watch his agony before he dies.

The victim's family should be there, laughing their asses off as he withers in agony (head flopping back and forth) before he eventually dies.

I have no sympathy for brutal murders ................ Does it show (no sympathy for brutal murders)?????? lol :)

I really doubt that anyone cares much how long it took him to die.

 

JS, why are you trolling? Trying to stir up crap saying such shit about liberals?

 

The POS is dead as he should be.

 

Lib or Con doesn't have a damn thing to do with it.

Why is it a botched execution if he died? I say mission accomplished.

I'm a big fan of punishment being exact exposure to the what the victim experienced.

 

For example, for the boston marathon bomber.

 

Secure his legs to the floor. Places a backpack with a pressure cooker bomb right next to his feet.

 

Set the timer for some unknown time between right away and eight hours.

 

Let it blow off his legs and let him bleed out.

 

Justice.

Yup, let's completely give the State a pass on egregious Constitutional violation because we want to sit around and beat our winkies to the sweet wet dream of grotesque death. Oh hey, while we are at it, let's let the state violate the 2nd Amendment and start collecting rifles! I think, if the State can make you out to be a bad guy, that they should be able to confiscate your property without a trial or court order.

 

Obviously, the Rule of Law means nothing to most people in this thread, so why stop at just the 8th Amendment?

No matter how you cut it - the death penalty is certainly a deterrent for the "individual offender". Food for thought: If a hard core murderer is given life; the possibility ( regardless how small ) will always exist, he or she may end up back on the street. It has happened before; and it will happen again. Whose for that?

OK. has set the standard,but I'm still a fan of the "Rope Dance" it always works , it's humane, and it can be reused, yopu dont have to be a MD. to administer it, and it can be reused, saves money.

How can you know who in the CIA did the Boston bombing?
