The Water Cooler – The Execution in Oklahoma

April 30, 2014 12:00 pm · 105 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it!

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon!

Today’s question:

Last night, a man who shot a teenage girl and buried her alive in Oklahoma in 1999 was executed. The execution took about 40 minutes because one of the inmate’s veins ruptured. He died of a heart attack about 40 minutes after the execution began.

What’s your opinion on this? Was it cruel & unusual punishment for the inmate, or do you think justice was served?

Talk about it….

Sympathy for Tookie Williams? I don’t know anything about gangs, but if I have zero tolerance for gang members, I can imagine how people who live in gang infested neighborhoods feel.

So what if he wrote children’s books. He had to do something to kill time behind bars.

Didn’t he murder innocent people?

My sentiments exactly-so what; he should have died even more slowly.

There should be a max time on death row of 5 years and at that point they should be relieved of their miserable life. The death penalty by lethal injection is a joke they should still have firing squads.
