Just a Reminder
There is a lot of moral preening going on about Clayton Lockett’s execution. Liberals are calling it botched. He was executed. The execution did not go as planned and he subsequently died of a heart attack. As I noted on twitter (Aaron Gardner came up with it), “For liberals a botched execution is when the convict dies, a botched abortion is when the innocent live.”
The left is terribly outraged about Clayton Lockett’s death. They likewise have a hard time understanding how someone can be pro-life, but also support the death penalty. These people treated Kermit Gosnell as a local crime story, but demand national outrage over Clayton Lockett’s execution.
One person not morally preening or saying anything at all on the matter of Clayton Lockett’s execution is Stephanie Neiman. In all the discussion over how Clayton Lockett was executed, few have paid attention to Miss. Neiman.
Clayton Lockett beat her, bound her with duct tape, covered her mouth, shot her, then buried her alive.
Just remember that while you are posturing over how Clayton Lockett died.
