America's Death Penalty

In Oklahoma a prisoner scheduled to be executed as a part of a double state sponsored killing on 29 April 2014; instead died an inhumane death because of an impotent drug combination. 

After being injected condemned prisoner Clayton Lockett, lifted his head and tried to get up from the gurney, jerked and convulsed for a half hour according to eye witness accounts.  He then had a heart attack and died. 

Here is the story you can’t get from the corporate media. 

Drug companies have refused to allow the use of their drugs for government sponsored killings, forcing many states that refuse to cease the superannuated practice to use homemade drug cocktails to carry out the death sentences. 

Despite the drug company warnings to the states concerning the possible suffering from the untested drug combinations, states continue to take chances and tread on the constitutional promise of punishments not being cruel or unusual.   

Many people including the ACLU are against capital punishment in America citing it doesn’t deter crime and it’s a practice that belongs to the days of antiquity.  In Europe during the Fifth Century B.C., Roman law of the Twelve Tablets employed, crucifixion, beating to death, burning alive, impalement, and crucifixion as methods of state execution. 

European influence is evidenced in early America by an untold number of brutal killings of African Slaves by racist spontaneous mobs and government officials alike.
