The death of Clayton Lockett

President Obama said the botched execution of a murderer was "deeply troubling." In 1999, Clayton Lockett kidnapped, beat, and shot 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman and ordered accomplices to bury her alive; this was after forcing the victim to witness the gang rape of a friend of Neiman.  Lockett had recently been released from prison and chose his young victim at random.  To my knowledge, President Obama has not called her torture and death deeply troubling.

No one deserves to die like that,,,, and we know what really happened. The KCl they injected infiltrated the vein,,, or went in slowly because the guards who started the IV were inept,, at best. It just took him a little longer to die.

I agree with ANON, Thou shalt not kill. period. And am wondering why a 'Christianide like you would advocate such action? But let me guess why,,,,It's your parties' line.

I have never advocated for the death penalty. There is always the possibility the sentence was incorrect, or the person can find redemption. What I'm against, and you know but have your own agenda of insulting me, is the phony outrage about a botched execution while ignoring the pain and suffering of the 2 girls who were victims.
