Lockett's Botched Execution: No Sympathy for the Devil

“Vein failure” reportedly caused convicted Oklahoma murderer Clayton Lockett to writhe on the gurney for twenty additional minutes before succumbing to heart failure during his April 29th execution.

It was terrible thing. But so is shooting a 19-year-old girl after botching a home robbery. No doubt liberals will pounce on this chance to declare Lockett a martyr for the end of capital punishment. Look online and you'll see someone carrying posters of him, displaying his picture like an image of St. Francis. Someone will quote Sister Helen Prejean, the famous nun from 'Dead Man Walking.' Diatribes on the horrors of lethal injection will be tossed out like confetti, and public sentiment might slide just slightly away from supporting the death penalty.

Capital punishment is turning into such a merciful farce that even the slightest discomfort on the part of a murderer will trigger an army of lawyers and lawsuits, millions of dollars wasted in the courtroom for an act that could cost as little as a twenty-cent bullet. That might sound callous, but does a man like Lockett deserve better? No.

Lockett committed the murder in 1999, and it has taken the legal system fifteen years to finally put him to death. Fifteen extra years of life he had, almost the lifespan of the girl he murdered. What saddens me in all this is that the victim herself seems to be pushed by the wayside, and the murderer turns into a symbol of a cause. Not only does it tear at her family, but it cheapens her memory, turning her into a byline of a fantasy-liberal agenda.

The execution isn't about "cruel and unusual punishment" and the purpose isn't to torture the man, but somehow manufacturing sympathy for him (which many are about to do) almost seems like moral forgiveness which Clayton Lockett truly does not deserve.

One detail I left out: after he murdered Stephanie Neiman, he coldly watched as his friends buried her. Alive.

No tears here.

I feel your pain, TimBean. As it is, the death penalty does nothing to deter homicides. Only the aggrieved feel the need for accountability for one’s crime. And, they are deemed to be acting on emotional insanity at the time.

Were people killers being put to death within six months of conviction that would give the wanna-be killer something to think about.

As it is, DNA samples load the shelves of law enforcement all across the country. ‘Justice’ is little more than a business, a la walmart. Threaten death and get a plea down to 20 to life. Growth and efficiency is the mantra, something in it for all involved, etc.

Example, TB, is how simple it would be to, instead of prosecuting young users for getting high on something, for law enforcement to offer the accused immunity if they would name, help put the dealer behind bars? Reason: that just is not good for the banks, investment houses, and businesses serving the drug trade. Corpocracy/globalisation and all that - - - them pore folks marketing heroin in Afghan et al would surely starve to death if they weren’t allowed to ply their trade.

Otherwise - - -
