This is the Teenage Girl Clayton Lockett Murdered, This is Why He Had to Die

The mainstream media is playing up the “tragedy” of Clayton Lockett’s “botched” execution. Since Lockett is finally dead, the execution succeeded at its task.

None of the liberal bleeders shedding tears for Lockett care to remember why he ended up there. Two words.

Stephanie Neiman.

Stephanie Neiman

This is Stephanie Neiman. Clayton Lockett murdered her over her truck. He laughed as he killed her.

Stephanie Neiman was proud of her shiny new Chevy truck with the Tasmanian Devil sticker on it and a matching “Tazz” license plate. Her parents had taught the teenager to stand up for “what was her right and for what she believed in.”

Neiman was dropping off a friend at a Perry residence on June 3, 1999, the same evening Clayton Lockett and two accomplices decided to pull a home invasion robbery there. Neiman fought Lockett when he tried to take the keys to her truck.

The men beat her and used duct tape to bind her hands and cover her mouth. Even after being kidnapped and driven to a dusty country road, Neiman didn’t back down when Lockett asked if she planned to contact police.

The men had also beaten and kidnapped Neiman’s friend along with Bobby Bornt, who lived in the residence, and Bornt’s 9-month-old baby.

Steve and Susie Neiman asked jurors to give Lockett the death penalty for taking the life of their only child, who had graduated from Perry High School two weeks before her death.

Lockett later told police “he decided to kill Stephanie because she would not agree to keep quiet,” court records state.

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.”

How tough was Clayton Lockett? He wasn’t so tough after all. And one day perhaps his defenders will meet their own Clayton Lockett and get their own little education in social justice.

Hollins told friends and relatives in a recent Facebook post: “The death penalty is to kill a man for his injustice … by lethal injection not lethal suffocation.”

Too bad Lockett wasn’t so generous with Stephanie when he shot her twice and buried her alive. This wasn’t a botched execution. It was a job well done.

    Daniel Greenfield is so correct – the media is trying to turn the killer into the victim – and why? the world is a better place without him. If the state was able to get the drugs the anti-death penalty people hounded out of the market this would not have happened and there would be no issue they could invent. Give me a Louisville slugger and 60 seconds – the S O B waiting his turn for raping an 11 month baby won’t feel a thing.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Because the media sympathizes with evil.

      It’s Professional courtesy.

      • Texas Patriot

        The fatal flaw in your philosophy is believing that vengeance is the province of man. It’s not. Man’s right is to defend himself against evil, not to punish it. Vengeance belongs to God and God alone.

        • Atikva

          But it is up to us to practice justice on this earth – at least as best we can. And it is not justice to let this type of repugnant murderers breathe fresh air every day for the rest of their lifes while their tortured victims are rotting in the grave. Enough disregard for the victims, enough excuses and protection of their murderers, enough!

          • Daniela G.

            Answer me this: How is killing a killer going to bring back the person who got killed? How is killing a HUMAN (no matter what they did- they are not a monster they are still human) going to ease your pain? If killing someone for doing wrong does ease your pittiful “pain” for the loss of a loved one, youre as bad as the muderer because you are getting satisfacrion over the same thing they got convicted for (MURDERING!!!)…. explain the irony. hm

          • Kyle Kiernan

            Execution expunges the insult to the dead that the continued life of the killer incarnates on a daily basis.

          • Daniela G.

            Define alive cuz He’s not necessarily living on a daily basis since he’s not allowed to be an active member in society…

          • Douglas J. Bender

            Breathing.

          • Kyle Kiernan

            Ok I’ll engage in these little definitional irrelevancies. Alive as in breathing eating and continuing to maintain body temperature.
            It’s not like I’m all torn up about his inability to engage in local community theater and all the rich panoply of civic activities his body politic has to offer.

          • Guest9999

            He was a monster!

            I get upset when we call people like this ‘animals’. They are not animals. Animals do not engage in the behavior this individual did.

            When an individual is nonchalant, or even seeks satisfaction out of the torture and death of a human being, that individual is a monster.

            His years in jail did not result in a rehab or spirituality or a sorrowness. He fashioned weapons, he attacked, he threw his feces and threatened to kill inmates and correction staff.

            It’s not his liver, or kidney or lungs that made him a monster, but his once human brain. His brain, unlike any animals brain, truly made him a monster.

          • popps joe

            You say pitiful “pain” like it does not matter, you trivialize it like it does not matter, that’s like this killer laughing at her as he killed her all over again. I think maybe you’re a monster.

          • Just Me

            I think you’re trivializing the life of Stephanie Nieman.

          • joe foley

            hey joe why dont you organise a lynching for that “monster” Dianela G ??

          • Just Me

            If you lost someone in a violent way, you wouldn’t have to ask this question. Knowing that the monster who killed your loved one is still alive to speak to his family, have a meal, and watch TV eats at the family of the victim. If he’s dead, they can begin to put the tragedy behind them instead of worrying that the parole board will free the person.

          • Katherine De Kanter Gigrich

            I believe in God. I believe He, and only He, has the power to pass someone’s ULTIMATE judgement and the ULTIMATE fate after this despicable human being has passed. However, here on earth, we need to protect the
            good and eliminate the evil when possible. So his execution didn’t go exactly as planned…like his gun jamming. Like that poor girl having to just lay there in the grave that was dug specifically for her, in pain and in fear? Like that poor girl then being shot with a shot gun
            while men stood back and laughed as she was buried alive. I will not apologize for believing in the existence of Karma as well, and as far as I’m concerned, a slight oops in this man’s execution doesn’t even come close to what he put that poor girl through. I say quit with the sleepy
            time meds and go back to firing squads and hangings! I’m sick of tax dollars being wasted on these people. I don’t want any part of my money feeding them, buying them new gym equipment, televisions, radios, computers, and whatever else. I certainly don’t want any of my money going towards tying up the judicial system with 101 appeals. I bet you would have a lot fewer crimes of this nature if the offender knew that if he/she gets caught and is convicted…that’s it. Last meal? Ummm…no. Their victims didn’t get one. Why should they? Ridiculous. Everyone knows eliminating the criminal will not bring the victim back. That isn’t even anywhere near the point!!

        • CowboyUp

          There is no other way to be sure such a person never murders again.

          • Texas Patriot

            Self-defense is a legitimate rationale for the death penalty. There is no other justification for it.

          • Rob Hobart

            Wrong. Justice is the rationale.

          • CowboyUp

            My reason is rational, just, and self defense. Also, there is nothing else remotely equal in value to the life of the victim, but the life of the murderer. It’s the only just price the murderer can pay.

          • Doc

            Well Texas no disrespect, by your reckoning then we should never have fought the British Crown, and Texans should never have fought Santa Anna. Self defense takes many different scenarios as does murder, I’m not about killing every criminal even those that were found guilty due to circumstantial evidence, there is not enough actual proof in those cases, but when some evil son of a bitch is so blatant and callous about taking a human life then they should pay the ultimate price, not for retribution for Justice sake and to send a message nor should we be expected to house and feed them for the rest of their miserable lives, forget recidivism or other such nonsense.

          • patrioticCanadian

            Yes there is. Death penalty insures no chance of recidivism 100% of the time.

          • CowboyUp

            Even incarcerating them for life with no parole, they might escape, and wipe out another family as was done to the Alday’s when I was growing up.

          • Daniela G.

            Answer me this: How is killing a killer going to bring back the person who got killed?

          • patrioticCanadian

            Read my comment again. I said he would have no chance at recidivism. Meaning he cannot repeat his crime again. It has nothing to do with my pain. And yes he is a monster just one in human skin. He forfeited his right to life when he deliberately took the life of another.

          • Daniela G.

            Read mine again. You’re as bad as he is for getting satisfaction over killing someone.

          • Drakken

            It is folks like you that earn Darwin Awards, and frankly folks like you deserve a healthy dose of reality. Good luck living in your unicorns and rainbow world.

          • truebearing

            That is an emotional blurt, not a rational thought. it is also a false equivalency.

            The murderer physically and psychologically tortured that poor girl — the one you strangely have no compassion for. He made her watch as her grave was dug. He shot her, then buried her alive. She had done nothing to deserve such heinous treatment. He, on the other hand, deserved to get what he gave, and then some.

            Lockett wasn’t murdered. He was put to sleep for his incredibly evil actions. He was a psychopath, and regardless whatever strange attraction you have to men like that, he needed to be removed from the planet so that he could do no more damage. Being glad he was exterminated is normal and healthy. He was evil incarnate.

          • patrioticCanadian

            It’s not satisfaction it’s just served. Him suffering was unfortunate. Him dying was necessary.

          • popps joe

            Him suffering was poetic justice.

          • Hurrah

            This is ridiculous. So murder justifies murder? Since when did sanctimony allow a free ticket out of hell? You murder somebody, you will be judged. O

          • Guesy

            Daniela G: Let it happen to one of your daughters or family members and then we will see how quick you are to think what was done to HIM was wrong!! Wake up child!

          • Guest9999

            He has a long history of fashioning weapons while incarcerated in county jail and state prison and was a disruptive inmate, according to a report compiled by the Oklahoma attorney general’s office for the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board. Those weapons included saw blades, sharpened wires, shanks made from metal window frames he destroyed, a 3-foot aluminum walking cane sharpened to a point, and an 11-inch plastic knife sharpened to a point.

          • Guest9999

            Also, disruptive incidents listed included flooding a day room, throwing feces and urine on a correctional officer, and threatening the lives of correctional officers.

            So I do not understand your “no chance at recidivism” comment.

          • patrioticCanadian

            Murdering again outside of prison. That was my angle

          • Scrap Iron

            Those all happened before his sentence was carried out. Once carried out then there is no more recidivism. Your comment is just completely off the mark as a reply to that point.

          • nomoretraitors

          • truebearing

            You clearly aren’t mature or intelligent enough to debate this topic. Thank you for providing the overwhelming evidence. Now run along.

          • Drakken

            You lose your human status the minute you do evil, it is societies responsibility to make sure that evil people, who do evil deeds, never do evil again for societies sake. Spare me your liberal stupidity and tears for the murder who got exactly what it deserved. Your stab at moral equivalency where there is none, is truly touching.

          • Mo

            I totally concur with you Drakken. I bet he wouldn’t be saying the same thing if the same atrocities happened to any of his close family members whether it be his daughter, sister, mother, or wife. Imagine that! Then come back and tell us that you don’t want this animal to pay for his inhumane crimes!

          • Nicole

            Exactly. I myself have thought “gee, this death penalty thing is kind of going against the whole turn the other cheek thing, or though shall not kill”, or whatever you want to compare it to. Then I think to myself “Hmmmm, if my child/mom/dad/grandparent/friend were to be killed by someone, such as the scenario in this case (or any other scenario for that matter), I know for a FACT I would want that person dead.” Pretty sure that is a very human feeling. Heck, when my car got broken into years ago, I wanted to find the person who did it and have them thrown in jail, I was so pissed. I couldn’t even imagine how upset/horrified I’d be if someone close to me was physically victimized. Yeah, the animal would pay in that scenario, one way or another, because if we as a society didn’t make him pay in a legal way, families/friends of victims would enact their own vengeance, and then we would be a very uncivilized society indeed!

          • Douglas J. Bender

            Do you really not understand or discern the difference between a justified killing, and “murder”? Such confusion is a large part of the reason for the continuing controversy over the death penalty. Stop it.

          • popps joe

            Murder was what this animal did, justified killing is what happened to him.

          • joe foley

            actually murder is killing when killing is not approved and killing is not murder when you do approve But killing is killing and in this case Im glad they killed that horror show

          • truebearing

            Explaining irony to you appears to be a Sisyphean task.

          • PatriotGuy

            So sick of hearing this idiotic liberal won’t-bring-back-the-victim retort. Do you think we are involved in some sort of ineffectual reincarnation routine? In executing this man we as a society are taking the life of a person whose actions were so heinous that he forfeited his right to live among us in a civilized society. Get real !!

          • joe foley

            you are being too hard on the lady she means well and we need people like her to balance against those amongst us who seem to delight in wanting to kill, for perfectly good reasons of course. Whatever the good reasons are at that moment. In this case the MF got what he deserved

          • popps joe

            You’re a narrow minded idiot, I’m sorry but you are, you minimize the pain the parents feel at the loss of their only child and you try to humanize this guy who is by the way, a MONSTER, he laughed at this poor girl while killing her, they buried her alive, the irony is that he made her to suffer and in the end he was made to suffer, there’s your irony. I’m OK with abolishing the death penalty but I don’t feel for this piece of garbage for how he died, it’s poetic justice.

            capital punishment is Biblical. It is included in the law of Moses. Therefore you are justified in killing a murderer.

            “Pitiful pain”? I hope you never feel that pain and if you do, let’s see what your opinion is. I’m so happy about the irony of it all…just wish it would have taken a lot longer for him to burn in hell.

          • JO

            It’s not about bringing back the dead person, it’s about preventing him from killing YOUR family. How would you feel if you found out the guy who just killed your child had killed before and no one did anything about it? Explain that irony!

          • Guesy

            That is where you are WRONG….HE WASN’T A HUMAN. He was an evil monster…devoid of a conscience!!!

          • guest

            NO, he WAS NOT human… he was just a murderous clump of cells, like a tumor.

          • B

            Daniela, May a child or family member of yours be subjected to a slow death of being shot and buried alive. Her life was taken away for no reason. Would forgive the killer of someone close? would you passionately embrace the murderer. Honestly… seriously… ? He took an innocent life. we took a killer’s life. Are they really the same?

          • Nicole

            In agreement to the others that have replied to you, I also want to interject, that it isn’t about bringing back the person who got killed. It’s about punishing someone for their inhumane, senseless act against another, innocent human being. Most people learn to treat others with respect when they are disciplined as children. However, for those crazies out there that never had the appropriate upbringing, and think it is okay, or even a hobby, to harm another human being-they do not deserve to be given the same rights as those innocent people, who are following the rules and living their lives as good contributing members of society, plain and simple.

          • Darin Sunny McCullough

            Sorry, it is called consequence to action. NOT murder.

          • GingerHaycox

            Perhaps not. But the laws in THIS country say that the death penalty should be carried out humanely. This was not. NOBODY knows what happened in those 14 minutes behind those drawn curtains either. Two wrongs do not make a right. *If* you must carry out death for death (??) then use something guaranteed to work. And fast!
            I am not a proponent of Capital punishment. It’s wonderful company we’re in…

          Executions are not vengeance, they are prevention. Clayton Lockett already proved to be a murderer – so now he will never do it again

          • Texas Patriot

            Gee: Executions are not vengeance, they are prevention.

            Prevention is not punishment, but rather a form of self-defense. Therefore it is legitimate. The truth is that we live in a fallen world and evil is pervasive. Our task is not to punish evil but to survive it and overcome it with good. We are not even allowed to get angry with our enemies, but rather we are required to forgive them and pray for them.

            “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment. But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. Matthew 5:21-22

            “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48.

            Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:17-21.

            Thus, scripture is clear that vengeance and punishment belong to God and God alone.

          • Screeminmeeme

            Then don’t call the police if someone invades your home and robs you and rapes your wife. Don’t demand the arrest of thieves and thugs. Or the arrest of the pedophile who abused your neighbor’s kid.

            Just leave it all to God and He’ll take care of it for you.

            The absurdity of this is evident. God instituted the law and government and has authorized men to judge and execute judgment against lawbreakers.

            To his disciples who He was sending into the Word, Jesus said:
            Luk 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

            It’s apparent that Jesus permitted those men to defend themselves. And the Apostle Paul wrote:

            1Ti 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

            People need food, shelter, clothing, love, discipline and security. God permits us to to secure our home, neighborhood, country by doing what is necessary to defend it from enemies which could harm or kill our families.

            The Christian pacifism that you are advocating is error.

        • http://tinatrent.com/ Tina Trent

          It’s not vengeance. Carelessly throwing around the “v” word is just repeating a sleazy leftists meme designed to explicitly attack and accuse victims of crime.

          Our justice system permits only the most subscribed role for victims and their families; victims, if alive, are mere witnesses to the crimes committed against them. The death penalty is a sentence delivered by the court system, not an emotional act of avenging the victims.

        • Boogie’s Daddy

          Punishment for a convicted criminal and vengeance are two very different things.

        • Doc

          I call BS on that, Jesus said give unto Ceasar what is Caesar’s and Unto God what is Gods.
          Caesar demanded the death penalty and Caesar got it. Clayton Lockett was lucky, he got the chance to find redemption and forgiveness from God, Susie never even got the chance to kneel and pray before being callously murdered.
          As far as I am concerned they should bring back hanging, screw the meds, all they do is allow them to die peacefully, sons of bitches.

          • Texas Patriot

            Hiya, Doc. What’s up. Always glad to hear the view of another Christian on the subject of anger and retribution for human sin and wrongdoing. The truth is that the words of Jesus and the Apostle Paul are pretty clear on the subject, and maybe when the mods are finished ruminating over some edits to my original post, you’ll get to see them again. The bottom line is that the world is a fallen place, and evil is pervasive. C. S. Lewis said that “No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good.” Jesus went so far as to say that “Only God is good.” So it should be no surprise when human beings to horrible and despicable things to one another. It’s an exception to the rule when they don’t. Under these very grim circumstances, in addition to counseling us to love and pray for our enemies and those who persecute us, Jesus counseled us to take the plank out of our own eyes so that maybe we could see clearly enough to take the splinter out of the eye of others. Let’s see what the mods do with the teachings of Jesus I posted previously. If need be I’ll post them again. The bottom line is that anger and vengeance for human sin are not the province of mankind. In both the Old and New Testament, it is clear that vengeance and wrath are reserved for God and God alone.

            I trust that Jesus knew what he was talking about.

            A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.

          • Wolfthatknowsall

            Doc, exactly right. For the last hundred years, we’ve been experimenting with “humane” ways to put people to death … the gas chamber, the electric chair, lethal injection.

            The most humane ways involve instantaneous death. Hanging, when using the proper formula, and the firing squad, result in instantaneous death. They are also less expensive.

            Personally, I would have put a couple of .380s in the back of his head, and we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

          • Texas Patriot

            I agree, Wolfie. If you have to do it, just do it and get it over with. The various “humane” alternatives we have come up with are just absurd. Firing squad or gallows at dawn, nothing else is necessary.

          • Drakken

            Rope is cheaper, and all you have to do is kick the stool out from under them and let them hang around for awhile thinking it over. Humane is for the humane, not the vicious.

          • LarryBundyJr

            Hanging was scrapped from most countries that carry capital punishment as it’s incredibly difficult to get right.

            It’s an exact science to judge the weight of the person with the length of the drop. Too short and they’ll strangle themselves to death, or not even die at all, too long and it’ll rip their head off completely.

        • Softly Bob

          It’s not vengeance, it’s justice – otherwise no crime would ever be punished, no matter how great and how small.
          I agree that justice should be clean and not excessive, otherwise it would turn into vengeance.
          This article is not gloating about a botched execution, but commenting on the fact that the Left are sympathizing with the criminal and ignoring the victim.

        • tagalog

          So many executions are not botched that I can’t help but think that God’s hand was in this particular one.

            tagalog: So many executions are not botched that I can’t help but think that God’s hand was in this particular one.

            When God wants to punish someone, he has a lot better ways of doing it. Why do you think the demons begged Jesus not to torture them before the appointed time? They know what’s coming.

            When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?” Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” He said to them, “Go!” So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. Matthew 8:28-34

          • tagalog

            It’s probably best not to tell God what He can do or not do.

            Very true. It is also probably best to heed his words and obey them.

          • Chavi Beck

            Like this one for instance: “So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are; for blood, it polluteth
            the land; and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that
            is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.” Numbers 35, the law regarding a murderer.

          • Texas Patriot

            It is unwise to get too bogged down in all the multitude of rules and commands of the Old Testament. Viewed from a broader perspective, they all relate back to the duty of loving God, loving yourself, and loving your neighbor as you love yourself:

            “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

            Matthew 22:36-40

        • Sally

          Also, “Thou shalt not kill.” It doesn’t say, “Thou shalt not kill unless the person has killed.”

          • Douglas J. Bender

            Do you not realize there is a difference between “killing” and “murdering”? Killing can be “just”, in many cases; murder never is — that’s why murder is condemned, but not killing. (If God had meant all “killing”, then He would be a hypocrite for commanding the people of Israel to go in and take possession of the Promised Land, since they had to do so via God-sanctioned KILLING of the inhabitants.)

          That’s interesting because God tells Israels to kill a man that has murdered.

        • Daniela G.

          Answer me this: How is killing a killer going to bring back the person who got killed? How is killing a HUMAN (no matter what they did- they are not a monster they are still human) going to ease your pain? If killing someone for doing wrong does ease your pittiful “pain” for the loss of a loved one, youre as bad as the muderer because you are getting satisfacrion over the same thing they got convicted for (MURDERING!!!)…. explain the irony.

          • Texas Patriot

            There is no “satisfaction” to be had in executing a murderer. It’s a sad and grim, but necessary business. Why is it necessary? First make it clear that there will be consequences for taking another person’s life. And second, because we can’t afford the huge amounts of money it costs to keep murderers locked up for the rest of their lives.

        • Douglas J. Bender

          PERSONAL vengeance is not man’s province, but God’s. However, JUSTICE can be administered by man, justly. And murderers (and rapists, etc.) get what they justly deserve when they are executed. Generally, they get far more mercy when being executed than they themselves granted their victims.

        • popps joe

          So you think God never uses people to cause his will to happen? God certainly did not intervene for this poor girl so why is vengeance his?

          There is no god so who does vengeance belong to again? Sorry to bust your bubble. Over time as we continue to divert people away from killing for gratification, evolution and natural selection will rid us of this primitive gene we still carry with us.

          • Texas Patriot

            Unfortunately, we’re hard-wired to kill or be killed in a grim battle for survival of the fittest, and that’s a product of 3.5 billion years of biological evolution of life on earth. Since our hard-wiring is not likely to change overnight, we all better hope that there is a holy, perfect, and loving God to intervene to keep us from killing one another.

        • triago88

          And who are you to speak for all of man. Are you really that self absorbed. Who are you to tell the world that man’s right is not to punish evil. Is it written somewhere in the Galactic Documents of the Universe. You sound like a moron.

          • Texas Patriot

            triago88: Who are you to tell the world that man’s right is not to punish evil. Is it written somewhere in the Galactic Documents of the Universe. You sound like a moron.

            If you don’t believe (a) that there is a loving God who created the Universe; (b) that the loving God who created the Universe has made the secrets of his Universe known to us, then I can see how you would think that there is no basis for the idea that man does not have the right to punish evil.

            On the other hand if such a God does exist and if such God has made the secrets of the Universe he has created known to us, then we must make every effort to understand what he has revealed to us, to heed what he has said, and to keep his commands. And the truth of the matter is that the God of the Hebrew and Christian Bible has, in no uncertain terms, revealed to us that vengeance and wrath belong to him, and not to us.

            So where do we fit in? What is our legitimate response to the evil of this world? Do we have the right to defend ourselves against violent attack? Arguably, yes. Jesus specifically commanded us not to respond to personal insults, to turn the other cheek if someone slapped us in the face, and to give someone the coat off our back if they want it. But he did not say that we should not defend ourselves and our families and our nations against violent attack. Justice for those who would harm us, yes. But also mercy, poverty of spirit, and meekness, and always the recognition that we too are sinners.

            There is no question that Jesus Christ commanded us to love and pray for our enemies, as well as our friends, and that is the narrow gate and hard road we are left with, if we want to follow the path of the God of the Old Testament and the New Testament.

          HEAR O
          ISRAEL THE LORD IS ……A VOLCANO!!!

          “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord
          is one!

          Deuteronomy 6:4-9

          Nahum 1:5-6 The mountains quake at him, and the
          hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in
          the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

          WAS THE GOD OF MOSES A VOLCANO?

          YES! GOD – YHWH/MOLOCH/BAAL/ALLAH WAS A
          VOLCANO-VOLCANIC ACTIVITY!!

          Exodus 3:12 And God said, “I will be with you. And this
          will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt,
          you will worship God on this mountain.”

          Exodus 13:21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.

          Exodus 15:7 In the greatness of your majesty you threw down those who opposed you. You unleashed your burning anger; it consumed them like stubble.

          Exodus 19:18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently.

          Exodus 24:17 To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.

          Exodus: 32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

          Exodus 40:38 So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night,
          in the sight of all the Israelites during all their travels.

          Leviticus 9:24 Fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell facedown.

          Leviticus 10:2 So fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before
          the LORD.

          Leviticus 10:6 Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, “Do not let your hair become unkempt and do not tear your clothes, or you will
          die and the LORD will be angry with the whole community. But your relatives, all the Israelites, may mourn for those the LORD has destroyed by fire.

          Numbers 11:1 Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the LORD, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the LORD burned among them and consumed some
          of the outskirts of the camp.

          Numbers 11:3 So that place was called Taberah, because fire from the LORD had burned among them.

          Numbers 14:14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it.
          They have already heard that you, LORD, are with these people and that you, LORD, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that
          you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.

          Numbers 16:35 And fire came out from the LORD and consumed the 250 men who were offering the incense.

          Numbers 26:10 The earth opened its mouth and swallowed them along with Korah, whose followers died when the fire devoured the 250 men. And they served as a warning sign.

          Deuteronomy 1:33 who went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out places for you to camp and to show you the way you should go.

          Deuteronomy 4:11 You came near and stood at the foot of the mountain while it blazed with fire to the very heavens, with black clouds and deep darkness.

          Deuteronomy 4:12 Then the LORD spoke to you out of the fire. You heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice.

          Deuteronomy 4:15 You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves verycarefully.

          OK?

          SO WHO IS YOUR GOD?

            Larry: SO WHO IS YOUR GOD?

            When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.” Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true. I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.” Then they asked him, “Where is your father?” “You do not know me or my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”

            John 8:12-20

            Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

            John 14:6-10

        • Screeminmeeme

          The Lord instituted government which permits man to judge criminals within a court of law. Man has been granted authority to take the life of the offender if found guilty.

        • Nicole

          I concur with your theory in a way. However, God makes man. Thus, if Vengeance belongs to God, and we have free will because God created us in his image, then man is going to go ahead and enact Vengeance. He deserved the way he died regardless of what anti-death penalty people may think.

          • hiernonymous

            Are you talking about the Scheneckers? Full disclosure, FWIW: I served with their father for several years, but I never met his family and wasn’t close enough to him to have ever discussed them with him. He was an outstanding officer. What I think is that it’s a horrible situation, and that she’s a very sick woman. If you’re asking what I think should happen to her, I think she is probably about as genuine a case of insanity as you’re likely to find – again, based on what I’ve read, which is no more than what you or anyone else would know. She should probably spend the rest of her life being cared for in a mental institution. If you’re specifically wondering whether I think the death penalty would be appropriate in that case, I think it would not.

            Not sure what that has to do with my comment to Daniel, though, which was just a gentle reminder that frontpagemag, in its own charming little way, aspires to be a part of the media he just condemned as sympathizing with evil from “professional courtesy.”

    As usual, the predictable “cover story” of murderers like Lockett is that he wouldn’t have done it if she had “agreed” to become deaf,dumb,and blind to what they did to her.This sounds lawyer-generated,whether he talked with his lawyer at that point,or not.It’s the flimsiest of “mitigating circumstances” yet it’s the only thing they could hang their hat on in the hope of getting something less than lethal execution.And the way to undercut this savage act of inhumanity ,in the pathetic universe of discourse with which we discuss these things, is to conjure up the concept that somehow “black-on-black” crime is even worse because it statistically outstrips black on white crime, and illustrates just how tragic the criminal nexus is when the wind up killing “one of their own”

        I think capital punishment, such as executions, should be contrived to compel the murderer to experience what he made his victim(s) experience, before he died. That would be deserved justice. I don’t believe in locking murderers away for life in a cell, so they can develop hobbies, convert to Christianity (or Islam), read, bone up on criminal law, spend time in a gym to develop their pecs, and in short remain alive at taxpayer expense. The rule of thumb (in common parlance) should be: You took a life, and you have forfeited your own. This rule, of course, would need to determine the absolute guilt of the murderer. And, of course, it would go against the “cruel and unusual punishment” rule in the Constitution.

        • truebearing

          I worked in a cemetary when I was going to college. We dug graves by hand, since it was an old cemetary and the backhoes frequently couldn’t get to the graves without excessive damage to other graves. We dug them pretty deep, to stay below the frost. No one could ever dig their way out, even if their hands were free.

          I’d make both of them dig their own graves, real deep, then I’d throw them in and bury them. They would live as long as they could hold their breath, which isn’t long when you are freaking out and your heart is pounding.

          Grave diggers have their own sense of humor, ie. “We’ll be the last ones to let you down.” I’d be honored to let them down, or better yet, force them to lower themselves on their own petard. They let the human race down and they deserve the fate they inflicted.

            Digging graves isn’t much of a way to make money, but it is a great way to confront mortality. Most of the graves we dug, and then filled after the service, were for people we didn’t know, but every once in awhile it was someone we knew and liked. Those were heavy shovels…

          • DogmaelJones1

            I’ve dug plenty of holes in my life, working temps on “mule teams” all over the country. In Las Vegas, where I spent time while writing some of my novels, I had to use a jackhammer to dig holes through the natural cement the city sits on, in order to plant trees.

          • truebearing

            Most of the time, I didn’t mind digging graves, even when it was hot and muggy. There was a simplicity to the job and a peacefulness to that cemetery. After a day of digging, or mowing, or trimming trees, we’d clean up and head to a bar where they served beer in frosty mugs.

    He died, ergo it wasn’t a failure. Lest we forget that hanging used to require up to 18 minutes before the heart stopped.

  • Atikva

    I totally agree with the article. If every potential murderer, young, old, White, Black, Asian or Latino, man or woman, knew for a fact that his life will automatically be on the line if he takes someone else’s, that would be a first step toward making America a safer place. And because this would be justice, not revenge, they would no suffer the same kind of death they would have inflicted to their victims – for which they should be very grateful.

    • Chavi Beck

  • PDK

    When one compares the current Sterling fiasco with the Stephanie Neiman story, it should be no contest, Stephanie’s story should be the one lambasted over every news outlet, but no.

    Sterling simply used basketball to see himself in a more natural setting of a white man above the lowly negro, big deal.

    Stephanie was an 18 years old human, innocent of any wrong doing.

    Clayton the negro was a murderer, thief, bully and undoubtedly a racist, except only a white can be racist in both the white liberal and negro ideologies.

    It is clearly time to rethink our socio-ideology.

    If for no other reason than for our coming white posterity, just like Stephanie.

  • http://tinatrent.com/ Tina Trent

    The racket being perpetrated by the lawyers for these sick thugs — the other one raped and murdered an infant — includes claiming in advance that the execution would be cruel.

    Just as Occupy activists and other leftists school each other in the practice of pretending to be in agony the moment a cop touches them, for the camera’s sake, I wonder if Lockett didn’t try to act out for the observers at his execution. In any case, 15 minutes is not long for a chemical execution.

    You need not support capital punishment to find efforts to create a false story of imaginary oppression objectionable. This is all about trying to undermine our already-too-weak criminal justice system.

      Lockett should have been buried alive, or at the very least, given the chair using a synthetic sponge. That POS was shown more compassion than he showed his victim. It’s easy to preach forgiveness in the abstract, not so easy when your loved one was victim of such a crime. The word is a better place without Clayton Lockett. May his journey to Hell be swift.

    • GingerHaycox

      Those words do NOT mean what vengeful people want them to mean though.

      This piece of scripture has been infamously
      misinterpreted throughout history & is always mistaken for revenge being just & acceptable. It is not! And if you’re looking to your bible for guidance then read the whole thing & don’t cherry pick the parts you want to apply?

      In Romans: (and numerous other sections of the Bible) it is mentioned that God does *not want us to seek revenge*.

      **Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,
      says the Lord.” **To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but
      overcome evil with good!
      – Romans 12:17-21
      Okay now…I am not religious. I am a Humanist, but have read the bible, both old & new testaments twice at my grandfathers behest. I know the book you people say you live by.
      What happened to this cretin was torture & murder. In this country, both of those crimes are illegal. You may justify it any way you wish but you’d be wrong, okay?

  • Seek

    Clayton Lockett was a pile of murderous Negro garbage who took joy in inflicting his sociopathic will on innocent white human beings. Regardless of whether his execution was successful or “botched,” either way, it happened. And the world is a better place as a result.

    DG,
    “Her parents had taught the teenager to stand up for “what was her right and for what she believed in.”

    “Lockett later told police “he decided to kill Stephanie because she would not agree to keep quiet,”
    I would think that the best course of action would be to deceive your oppressor and then go to the authorities after he let’s you go. It wasn’t worth her life to defend that vehicle in the face of overwhelming force. she should have lied to him and then turned him in.
    Lockett’s defenders are just despicable. They are capable of more compassion and better logic. They refuse to use it.

  • Toa

    Romans 13: 1-7. There is a big difference between God’s instructions for the Christian’s personal conduct and the human structures He has set up to govern, most of which are secular in nature. “He is the Lord, He changes not.” The Bible contains quite a chronology of God moving through various kings, military commanders and prophets in executing justice, retribution and punishment.
    Coming to Christ is not a cover to indulge in a sappy, wimpy attitude. We as Christians have NO RIGHT to turn other people’s cheeks for them to prove our supposed deep spirituality.

    • Texas Patriot

      Toa: Coming to Christ is not a cover to indulge in a sappy, wimpy attitude. We as Christians have NO RIGHT to turn other people’s cheeks for them to prove our supposed deep spirituality.

      I agree with that. Christians are commanded to ignore insults, to turn the other cheek if someone slaps us in the face, and to give them the coat off of our backs if they want it. But there is nothing in the teachings of Jesus Christ that prevents us from defending ourselves, our families, and our friends from violent attack. If thieves and murderers break into our houses to rape and kill our families, Christians have a right and a duty to defend themselves and their families, including the right to use deadly force in doing so. This right of self-defense arguably extends to defending our nation against violent attacks from third parties, and also to defend other nations who are not capable of defending themselves, and there is no limit to the amount of force we are permitted to use if it is necessary for purposes of exercising this right and duty of self-defense. Executing violent criminals to prevent further violent attacks also falls within this right of self-defense, in my view. But there is nothing in the Old Testament or the New Testament which gives anyone the right to take pleasure in punishing wrongdoers. That is a right which is reserved for God alone.

Since Obama is morally responsible for the genocides, tortures, mutilations and destruction wrought by these muslim militia, which in turns make every American responsible as well.

    The executioner at Nuremberg was a professional hangman who had never “botched” a hanging in his career (which would result in choking to death). Interesting fact is that all of the Naz!s that he hung didn’t have an instantaneous death.

    Sometimes, the men who carry out the sentence have the duty to make sure it fits the crime …

    • Texas Patriot

      It is probably the case that few men in the history of the world committed greater crimes against humanity than Saddam Hussein, but to their credit his Iraqi executioners were impeccably courteous and humane in the manner in which they placed the noose on his head and prepared him for death. When a man is about to meet the God who created him and face judgement for the errors and omissions of his life, the only appropriate emotion for all concerned is humility and dread.

      • Wolfthatknowsall

        Indeed, Saddam himself … who had hanged and otherwise executed many of his countrymen … met his own end with the sort of dignity that none of us suspected he was capable of.

        Humility and dread? I agree …

      • Daniel Greenfield

        As a noose was tightened around Hussein’s neck, one of the executioners yelled “long live Muqtada al-Sadr,” Haddad said, referring to the powerful anti-American Shiite religious leader.

        Haddad’s description of Hussein’s demeanor before his execution contrasts markedly with that of another witness, Iraqi national security adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie. “He was a broken man,” al-Rubaie said. “He was afraid. You could see fear in his face.

        • Texas Patriot

          The best evidence is the video itself. There is nothing in the video to indicate any discourtesy or mistreatment by the executioners. There was a discussion at the top of the gallows about wearing a hood, which Saddam Hussein refused, but the taunts and mocks from the followers of al-Sadr seemed to come from below and in front of the gallows and not from the executioners themselves. Saddam Hussein did engage briefly with the followers of al-Sadr below him, but there was no sign of fear on his face or in his voice. Rather he seemed to be a man resigned to his fate and prepared for his death.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            I don’t see point to a prolonged discussion on the subject, but numerous reports showed the taunts coming from the guards. That along with other factors suggested that the execution had been staged managed by the Shiites.

          • Texas Patriot

            I don’t see any reason to discuss it further. As I stated previously, the best evidence regarding those issues is probably the video itself.

        • Lea

          Exactly!

          • corduboy

            I read the article again and Greenfield changed “Hollins” (Lockett’s stepmother) to “Lockett,” which actually makes a lot more sense. A nice correction, but a little too late since one poster has already expressed a desire to have Hollins killed based on Greenfield’s original mistake. Class A journalism right there, I”ll tell ya.

            Next time I’ll take a screen shot before I post.

          • Lea

            You still don’t make any sense, never mind, you obviously have a bias.

          • corduboy

            Not really. I’m actually pretty ambivalent about the death penalty…so no bias one way or the other. I certainly have little or no room in my heart to feel badly about how Lockett died. If I were a better Christian I would, but I’m not and I don’t.

            How could Hollins have the opportunity to be generous or not be generous when the poor girl was being buried alive if she (Hollins) wasn’t even there? It’s Greenfield’s paragraph as originally written that doesn’t make sense.

            It’s an honest mistake I guess, but unless the Shillman Journalism Fellowship is an award given out to promising eighth graders, the awardee should ask for its money back. At the very least, Greenfield should print a correction, instead of just correcting the article and sending the original down the memory hole–1984-style.

            Especially since now truebearing is talking about having Hollins executed: “Lockett and Hollins are lucky I’m not the one who chose their method of execution”.

    • truebearing

      Yeah, we should read your incoherent drivel instead of Greenfield’s crystal clear prose. You can’t even read the article and understand it. No one else here is having that problem.

      • corduboy

        Then why did Greenfield correct his original sentence from “Too bad Hollins…” to “Too bad Lockett…”? I cut and pasted it in my post–I didn’t retype it.

    Still think my preferred method of punishment would serve to lessen the number of murders.
    .
    Put the perp in a locked room, bound and gagged with duct tape and six (by lottery) of the victims six closest female relatives with blunt instruments.
    .
    Not sure about yours but if given a shot at someone who had murdered her daughter, my wife would have made the execution last a while.
    .
    When word of punishment and pain meted out spread, the murder rate would decline.
    And as an added bonus, fewer recidivist crimes.

  • guest

    After reading the story in 1999 when this happened, this person surely got what he had coming!!! She was innocent, he tied her up, made her watch as her grave was dug, shot her, shot her again and then made another person bury her alive!!! Oh my God, thank you for blotching this execution and causing this as*hole to not get such an easy death. Just glad he is GONE!!!

    Stephanie no doubt suffered being shot and buried alive. Society tries to make death penalty not painful. Too bad he didn’t give her the same courtest

    “The death penalty is to kill a man for his injustice…” I agree on this statement and the execution of this criminal. (just hope that 45 yrs later, we don’t hear that the wrong man was executed). What I would like to see in this country, is this SAME system of justice to be rendered to criminals who inflict sexual crimes on little innocent children and or leave them to die in pain and trauma?

  • http://www.susandharris.com Susan D. Harris

    I don’t believe in inhumane killing of prisoners. The bigger issue is that this man should have been put to death IMMEDIATELY after his trial by hanging or firing squad. Justice delayed is justice denied. This whole bit of injecting chemicals or botched electrocutions is wrong.

  • MJ

    I think you’re missing the point, Texas Patriot. No one is talking about vengeance, they’re talking about remembering the victims, not those who victimize. Lockett had no respect for Stephanie Neiman’s life, and ultimately got what he deserved. If we, as a society, would focus more on the victims of these horrendous crimes, rather than those who commit them, perhaps we could start to turn things around in this world. I would venture to guess, that if the punishment more matched the crime committed, criminals might think twice about the value of human life.

    THE SUBHUMAN NEANDERTHAL GOT WHAT HE DESERVED & I HOPE
    SCUM LIKE YOU WHO DEFEND HIS KIND, GET WHAT YOU DESERVE!

    The mainstream media is playing up the “tragedy” of Clayton
    Lockett’s “botched” execution. Since Lockett is finally dead, the execution
    succeeded at its task.

    None of the liberal bleeders shedding tears for Lockett care
    to remember why he ended up there. Two words.

    STEPHANIE NEIMAN

    Clayton Lockett murdered her over her truck. He laughed as
    he killed her.

    Stephanie Neiman was proud of her shiny new Chevy truck with the Tasmanian Devil sticker on it and a matching “Tazz” license plate. Her parents had taught the teenager to stand up for “what was her right and for what she believed in.”

    Neiman was dropping off a friend at a Perry residence on June 3, 1999, the same evening Clayton Lockett and two accomplices decided to pull a home invasion robbery there. Neiman fought Lockett when he tried to take the keys to her truck.

    The men beat her and used duct tape to bind her hands and cover her mouth. Even after being kidnapped and driven to a dusty country road, Neiman didn’t back down when Lockett asked if she planned to contact police.

    The men had also beaten and kidnapped Neiman’s friend along with Bobby Bornt, who lived in the residence, and Bornt’s 9-month-old baby.

    Steve and Susie Neiman asked jurors to give Lockett the death penalty for taking the life of their only child, who had graduated from Perry High School
    two weeks before her death.

    Lockett later told police “he decided to kill Stephanie because she would not agree to keep quiet,” court records state.

    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.”

    How tough was Clayton Lockett? He wasn’t so tough after all.
    And one day perhaps his defenders will meet their own Clayton Lockett and get
    their own little education in social justice.

    Hollins told friends and relatives in a recent Facebook post: “The death penalty is to kill a man for his injustice … by lethal injection not lethal suffocation.”

    Too bad Lockett wasn’t so generous with Stephanie when he shot her twice and buried her alive. This wasn’t a botched execution. It was a job well done.

  • meme1

    he very well got what he deserved. What goes around comes around.

  • genia

    Maybe some people got “satisfaction” out of this execution, but that’s not the issue and it isn’t a reason to abolish the death penalty, either. Ending the life of a violent criminal–one that will be a continuous threat to society, is a necessity, that is, until we can agree on a different way to keep innocent people safe. (Place violent psychopaths on an island and make them work..you know–that sort of thing). But, until that day comes, in the words of Spock: “The good of the many outweigh the good of the few..” Personally, that this killer suffered does not make me queasy–the thought of others like him getting out and re-offending because of people’s misplaced sentiments does,

    Sorry, lowlife, piece of DUNG….. He deserved to suffer slow and long….Too bad he couldn’t be made to suffer the same pain he inflicted upon Stephanie!!

    I’m against the death penalty. I think it’s bad for society for our government to be sanctioning killing people if we’re trying to discourage it. There’s potential to study these people, but not if they’re dead (well, not in as useful a way, or for as long ;) ). Also it tends to cost more to put them to death than it would to keep them alive in custody the rest of their lives (amazingly). I know some would say just shoot them in the head, or give him a lethal injection that might not work right, which is exactly why these sort of decisions need to be left in hands of bleeding heart liberals, rather than people who get mad and stop thinking.

    I’m sure most of you know already, the background to this story is that European drug companies have stopped providing the drugs used for lethal injections, and now the states who are proceeding with their lethal injections aren’t telling anyone the sources they’re getting them from. Many suspect there’s some sort of conspiracy involving drug companies. either in the US or Europe providing them secretly, but I suspect they’re simply getting cheap bootlegs from China (most likely, or India, South America,, a few possibilities).

    If for nothing else, even if you don’t have a moral obligation to ensure everything proceeds correctly, it doesn’t look good. I don’t feel sorry for the murderer, but I think if we’re to have executions it shouldn’t be in a way that’s so open to criticism.

    Then you have people like Daniel Greenfield saying it was a “Job well done”, and people commenting on that saying how wonderful that is. When these sorts of opinions do get out to the wider world, from the mouthpieces at FOX, and Murdoch’s worldwide media empire, well it’s hard to quantify the damage that does. You might say you don’t care about that because what he did was awful, which is exactly why decisions on what to do when something goes wrong in an execution need to be left in the hands of bleeding heart liberals, rather than people who get mad and stop thinking.

    There’s a theme developing here – people get mad and stop thinking. This isn’t dictated by politics, but rather by biology. Blood rushes away from the brain and to our muscles where it’s ready to be used in a fight or flight situation. That’s great for moments like that, but it’s really not a good idea to be making decisions to base your life on in that state, especially ones that show your true colors.

    They should have dropped him in a hungry lion or alligator exhibit at the ZOO and let animals be animals.

    The killer lived 15 years longer than he should have. The left idolizes murderers because they have so much in common with them!

    It’s worth spending a few minutes glancing at Clayton Lockett’s biography – abandoned by his mother, abused by his father, raped by three men – and wondering how many of us would keep any shred of humanity after this experience.

    The convicted killer suffered for 25 minutes and everybody is upset about this. I’m upset about the fear of his victims and the horrible death of being buried alive. I think the torture of his victims lasted longer then the death of this killer. Keeping in mind that he had a choice, if he hadn’t kill he would not have been sentenced to death. No Lockett is no victim he’s convicted to the death penalty where Stephanie is the only victim.

    All it takes a little imagination. 10 seconds imagining that was MY daughter pleading for her life in that ditch, and I would have most definitely murdered that MOFO myself in a much more brutal way. He didn’t get what he deserved.

  • Robert Nordgren

    Murder is always wrong, that includes all the cases where the state is murdering in the name of vengeance

  • Brian Braden

    Looks like there’s justice after all, now hes burning in a hell fire of which there is no end to his torment.

    The media do not sympathize the evil. The question is, if there are horrible monsters out there, should the State be just the same but in a legalized way? Punishment …ok, for sure. Killing is just the same bad example, considering life as a property that can be taken. Just the way monsters think and why they can even kill.
