Justice for Clayton D. Lockett?

Most states don’t apply the death penalty to average joes.


It usually takes doing something pretty rough to warrant a death sentence.

And yet the barrage of articles peppering the Internet seem to focus on the horror of a botched execution rather than the nightmarish crime it represents:

A teenage girl was abducted, brutally raped and murdered by a group of men. The last hours of her life had to have been hell.

But now, more than a decade later she is all but forgotten as we examine the death of one of her tormentors?

Why not put it to a simple test. Ask yourself this: whose death story would you prefer to endure–Lockett’s or Stephanie Michelle Nieman’s?
