The Botched Execution of Clayton Lockett

From Odyssey Network’s Faith on the Record video series: The scheduled execution of Clayton Lockett by the State of Oklahoma went terribly wrong Tuesday night when the cocktail of drugs administered did not provide the swift, antiseptic death promised by “lethal injection.” Instead, Lockett died of a heart attack following a gruesome reaction to the drugs. No matter how clean and tidy we try to make the death penalty, the bottom line is we are killing people.
