Botched Executions-

Constitutionality of Death Penalty Exasperates the objectification inherent in reducing the black man to his cock In his last words:

Demps said,
“They butchered me back there. I was in a lot of pain. They cut me in the groin, they cut me in the leg. I was bleeding profusely. This is not an execution, it is murder.”
Mr. Demps, accused of holding down an inmate while another man stabbed him, said that he was not guilty and that the state had framed him because he had been spared the death penalty in the earlier case.

Blood spurted from Allen Lee Davis, a three-time murderer, when he was electrocuted in July. And inmates caught fire in the electric chair as they were put to death in 1990 and 1997.

“Racial bias. Uneven application of the death penalty. Situations in which there were individuals on death row who later on were discovered to have been innocent because of exculpatory evidence – all these I think do raise significant questions about how the death penalty is being applied,” he said.

Constitutionality of Death Penalty Questioned in Oklahoma

No evidence was introduced at the trial to prove that Clayton Locket was at the scene. His attorney offered no defines at trial. Those who said what happened claimed they were allowed to leave. They revealed evidence that they claim happened out of their sight. and know many details not to have participated. It is appropriate that Obama: After Oklahoma’s botched execution, “I’m asking Eric Holder to review the death penalty”

The state of Oklahoma has been executing inmates since 1915. In total, 193 people on death row have been put to death, including three women, one 1936 hanging, 82 electrocutions, and 110 lethal injections.
The electric chair was retired by the state after the 1966 execution of James French, and Oklahoma has since reverted mostly to lethal injections. However, a shortage of certain drugs has caused recent controversy.

Court documents reveal, “Mr. Clayton Lockett’s trial counsel did not present a defense. In his opening statement, counsel told the jury that Mr. Lockett had no defense. He referred to the prosecutor’s statement that the jury would have ‘no doubt, not just beyond a reasonable doubt, but no doubt’ of Mr. Lockett’s guilt and conceded that the prosecutor was right.”
Lethal Injection
Most often, lethal injection cases are considered botched when the execution takes much longer than expected. Some executions have lasted upwards of two hours, fifteen times as long as the average of eight minutes. Another reason that a lethal injection execution may be considered botched, is if the prisoner displays signs of pain. In these cases, the prisoner’s Eighth Amendment rights may be in violation. Factors that most commonly lead to faulty executions are incorrect IV placement and not injecting enough of the anaesthetic.
Angel Diaz’s execution on December 13th, 2006 is an example of a lethal injection execution going terribly wrong. When putting in the IV, the executioner actually passed through the entire vein and went into the soft tissue of Diaz’s arm. For this reason, the chemicals of the first injection did not reach the bloodstream correctly so Diaz did not lose consciousness in the typical three to four minutes. Twenty-four minutes after the first injection, Diaz showed signs of movement- blinking, grimacing, blowing, and mouthing words. With these signs, Diaz was given a second dose and
The most recent case in which lethal injection went wrong was on September 15, 2009 during the execution of Romell Broom in Ohio. During the process, the executioner stuck Broom eighteen times with needles in attempt to find a suitable vein in both his arms and legs to put the IV in. After two hours, the execution team stopped trying, making Broom’s execution the first failed lethal injection execution in world history.

Prosecutors and prison officials say that while he was being taken to the hospital, Sturgis told two guards in a “dying declaration” that fellow inmates Demps, Jackson and Mungin attacked him. Authorities believe that Demps and Mungin held Sturgis while Jackson repeatedly plunged a homemade prison knife into his chest.
He claims he is the victim of a prison frame-up and an unscrupulous prosecutor who withheld evidence. Demps also said a report from the Department of Corrections named another man as the inmate’s only killer. Prosecutors are scoffing at his claims, noting that the courts have rejected all of his appeals and that all evidence points to him as one of the killers.
