I just saw this posted on Facebook and thought I'd share given our conversation on unitive v punitive justice.
Basically, a death row inmate died in a painful way because the state used an untested drug cocktail.
Oklahoma had to create a new drug mix because the European suppliers have stopped selling theirs to the US (all European countries except Belarus and Kazakhstan have outlawed the death penalty).
If you look at the comments at the bottom of the article, you can see what type of justice the commenters are seeking (the 500+ comments on Facebook are worse!).
" Just shoot them. One bullet to the head is a hell of a lot cheaper!!"
"How was it botched ? IS he dead? What happened to the good old days when we shot or hanged the scum bags? Hey we could fry them 2 i would give an extra dollar on the power bill for it !"
