White House condemns botched Oklahoma
execution saying it was not done in a

The White House says a botched execution of a death row inmate in Oklahoma fell short of the humane standards required when the death penalty is carried out. Officials halted Clayton Lockett´s execution Tuesday when he convulsed violently and tried to lift his head after a doctor declared him unconscious. He later died of an apparent heart attack after spending 40 minutes writhing in pain. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama believes evidence shows the death penalty doesn´t effectively deter crime. That said, Carney reiterated that Obama believes some crimes are so heinous that the death penalty is

You can always count on the White House to defend some filthy animal defendant. I wonder how long that (white) girl that he murdered writhed in agony after he shot her and then watched her being buried alive?? Why didn´t the reprehensible Carney mention that? Sorry, I´m not shedding one tear for him and I don´t care if he suffered for 40 minutes or 2 hours.

The death penalty does work - they never kill anyone again once they are deleted from the society they prey on.

Hire firing squads from the Chicago hoods - much faster and a lot more deadly.

"Lockett, 38, who was found guilty of shooting a woman and watching his friends bury her alive, was declared unconscious ten minutes after the first of the state´s new three-drug lethal injection combination was administered."

So he buried his victim alive and the White House Condemns..

The firing squad works best and should be used.

Unlike other methods it does not depend upon any single mechanism. One rifle can misfire or fail (although even that would be very unusual) but ten rifles will not.

Whether there should be any death penalty is a separate question.

At least this guilty so and so only suffered for 40 minutes, unlike the innocent Americans that suffered for HOURS under attack at Benghazi and received no mitigating assistance from this White House, which could have rendered help, whatsoever!

First it wasn´t a botched execution. He is dead and that was the goal. What I don´t understand is why can I take a pet that needs to be put to sleep and it takes just a few moments after a shot from the vet. Maybe we just need to bring in a vet or take these guys to a pet hospital to be disposed of. What´s up with the IV and the three separate shots? I guess this administration looks at it as losing another voter.

I´ve always felt that the condemned murderer set the standards of "cruel and unusual punishment" by the method(s) he employed in accomplishing the murder he was convicted for.

No person makes it to death row without committing at least one "heinous" murder, one cannot reach death row with a "lesser" crime. In this case, the convict never (as in not once) claimed to be "innocent" or "wrongfully convicted" in his appeals, he admitted he shot his victim and oversaw her burial while still alive, but thought he should get a "lesser" punishment.

Eric Boling, on the "Five" a few minutes ago said "He suffered 43 minutes, it should have been 43 years!" I think he should have experienced the fear and horror for as long as his victim lived, and that might have been closer to 43 hours.

Charity to the guilty is hateful to their victims (and the victim´s families who have suffered since 1999 when this criminal killed their loved one).

It´s obvious God intervened in this execution.
I don´t believe the Hell-bound one was in any pain yet as he was unconscious. Most likely just the evil in him trying to live just a bit longer.

The victims and their families suffered much more than Lockett. In the grand scheme, he got off easy.

He deserved a death sentence and he was given a death sentence--and now he is dead. Good!!

However, we must now wring our hands about the method of killing a condemned killer. The procedure, so humanely complicated with the separate administration of three different drugs, was doomed to failure.

Note: The guillotine was effective and seldom botched...

Re my #19, I was mistaken. He didn´t rape her. He shot her twice and then watched while his pals buried her alive.

The same might have been appropriate for him. I´ll bet that he didn´t feel a thing during this "botched" execution. The first drug administered puts the person out.

#30, in #7 I was trying to distinguish between purpose and method. I think there is a good reason to separate them.

Those who oppose the death penalty usually take an absolute position. It is "no, no, no, no way, never, ever".

Trying to discuss what is the best method of execution with such a person is not going to be productive. Because to the DP opponent no method can ever be admitted to be better than another; every method must be denounced.

The firing squad seems the best method to me. It requires no special expertise or facilities and it is going to work. Nor do I see it as slower or more painful than alternatives.

We also know a lot of people are glad Lockett did not die fast and seems to have suffered. They can, if they wish, advocate pain and cheer at botched executions but that will be counter-productive. It will lead to courts stopping all executions.

This mess with Lockett will work against death penalties. We already see it in the media. And I say that an inferior method led to that.

I think that the method of the execution should match the heinessness of the crime. In this case, for instance, he should have been strung up by the ankles and then "dipped" head first into the nearest raw sewage treatment collection until his toes stopped wiggling. Not that I´m advocating violence or anything, mind you . . .

As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks
