Sampling of reactions and commentary in wake of Oklahoma's execution problems
Thanks largely to coverage and links provided by How Appealing and The StandDown Texas Project, I can do a quick sample of some of the reactions and commentary emerging this week in response to Oklahoma's ugly execution:
From Politico here, "White House expresses dismay over botched Oklahoma execution
From Politico also here, "Tom Coburn: Botched executions rare"
From Roll Call here, "Inhofe: Botched Oklahoma Execution Shouldn’t Change Death Penalty"
From Andrew Cohen at The Atlantic here, "How Oklahoma's Botched Execution Affects the Death-Penalty Debate
From Sam Kleiner at The New Republic here, "Clayton Lockett's Botched Execution Adds Credibility to Court Fight Over Drug Secrecy"
From Dahlia Lithwick at Slate here, "When the Death Penalty Turns Into Torture: Oklahoma's botched execution was the grim but predictable result of a state more concerned with vengeance than justice"
