Barack Obama, never missing an opportunity to defame the United States, went to a German reporter to say that judges in America are biased against blacks — Oklahoma troubles him deeply, he said, expressing sympathy for Clayton Lockett, the black piece of scum who shot a girl twice, still in her teens, and buried her alive. I believe We The People in any state, hope ‘his kind,’ (having nothing to do with the color of his skin) suffers, whether through a proper drip of poison or a drip gone wrong. He’s dead — took him 43 minutes to die. Should have been dead years ago. He killed Stephanie in June 1999, two weeks after her high school graduation. I hope he suffered terribly. If he suffered inhumanely, then I’m good with that. He was a worthless piece of crap that either The Almighty will rehabilitate, or not.
On June 3, 1999, Stephanie was driving a friend home in her Chevy pickup and had the misfortune of arriving when three men were there, supposedly attempting to beat a debt out of Bobby Bornt, 23, who lived there with his 9-month-old son.
One man hit Stephanie’s friend with a shotgun and forced her to call Stephanie inside. The men then raped the friend and beat Stephanie, when she refused to give up her truck keys. They bound her with duct tape and drove her to a country road.
Still, she refused to say she wouldn’t call the police on them, so they forced her to her knees and made her watch one gunman dig a grave. When one man shot her, his gun jammed, while Stephanie screamed. The man cleared his weapon and shot her again. Even though she was still breathing, the man ordered his accomplices to bury her, which they did.

Friends of Stephanie Neiman have no sympathy for her convicted killer, Clayton Lockett, the Oklahoma death row inmate who writhed and groaned during his execution Tuesday, a sentence he received for shooting and burying alive the 19-year-old young woman some 15 years ago.
“Stephanie was beat up, she was shot, she was thrown in a grave when she was still alive,” Marilee Macias, the owner of the Kumback Lunch in Neiman’s hometown of Perry, Okla., told KFOR-TV. “His little 30 minutes of lying there in anguish, if he was even feeling any anguish for 30 minutes, does not compare at all to anything Stephanie went through or her family.

Lockett did his best to stop the inevitable, and was tasered the morning he died:

Clayton Lockett had spent time in prison before he killed Ms. Neiman.
Constitutional expert, Ladonna Hollins, mother of Clayton Lockett:
He was in pain and in our Constitution it clearly states that we should not make a man suffer like this so I’m torn…Source: Tulsa World
He confessed, he showed no remorse. The family may sue:
“I want them to admit they did wrong and after that, let’s change this,” said Hollins, who has not retained a lawyer yet. “If we are going to put people to death, let’s do it the right way.” ~ Ladonna Hollins
A firing squad is the sure way to make certain no one suffers. Let’s “do it the right way” and hire some sharp shooters.
Hollins lost her son. Had my son done such a heinous thing, I would also mourn, no matter how he died, no matter what he had done, I would have mourned, but NEVER, NEVER would I do it publicly — NEVER would I cry for television cameras knowing what I gave birth too and raised, caused so much pain and anguish for others. I would know that nothing happening to my guilty son in prison while facing the death penalty was unjust, “botched” or not.
My State of Oklahoma entered into the procedure lawfully and in good faith. Barack Obama deeply troubles me.
