Death penalty

Clayton Lockett died of a heart attack after his execution for murder was botched in the state of Oklahoma (your reports).

This was the cue for the bleeding hearts to call for the abolition of the death penalty. Lockett was convicted of the brutal rape and shooting of 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman in 1999 and watching as two accomplices buried her alive.

She suffered horrendously; can I be excused for having no sympathy whatsoever for the nature of this evil man’s demise?
