Cover-up of Botched Execution in Oklahoma
You may have heard today about report that has come out on the horrid botched execution in Oklahoma when the condemned man actually rose from the table before he finally died--of a heart attack--after the needle was jabbed into his groin for, like, the 16th time. "A bloody mess" the report quotes a doctor. The new uproar stems from this Tulsa World probe--co-author was just on Maddow show-- and note that the report shows that the state tried to cover it up in certain ways. Note: my ebook on history of capital punishment in USA right up to current debates on issues and, yes, botched executions.
