    Texas set for first execution since botched case

    [​IMG]


    HUNTSVILLE, Texas —
    Texas will carry out on Tuesday the first U.S. execution since a botched lethal injection in Oklahoma last month unless attorneys for a man convicted of murdering a Houston bank teller can convince a court that he runs the same risk of the punishment going awry.

    Attorneys for Texas condemned killer Robert Campbell cited in their appeal the Oklahoma case of Clayton Lockett, who died of an apparent heart attack on April 29 after Oklahoma prison officials stopped his execution.

    Oklahoma has agreed to a six-month stay of execution for another inmate while the state conducts an investigation of the death of Lockett, who began writhing, clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head after he was injected with lethal drugs last month. The blinds were eventually lowered to prevent viewing of the death chamber. It could take at least two months for a complete autopsy report to be received, Oklahoma officials said Monday.

    Campbell's attorneys — citing the Oklahoma case that President Barack Obama called "inhumane" — renewed arguments raised earlier in Texas that secrecy over the source of the pentobarbital drug to be used could mean that Campbell is subjected to unconstitutional pain and suffering.

    "Frighteningly, Texas is pursuing the path of secrecy in the midst of these deeply troubling events, and even in the immediate wake of events in Oklahoma," said Maurie Levin, Campbell's lead attorney in a federal civil rights suit. "Information about the source of lethal injections drugs — particularly in today's fraught arena — is vital."

    The difference between Texas and Oklahoma is that our guards are crack shots. If things look like they are starting to go sideways, they'll just pull out their 45s and finish the job. Chances are that several spectators will bring out their backup (They are relieved of their primary weapon at prison check in) and join in.

    Not many people in Texas would give two shits if the guy suffered a little before he died.

    The state keeps a log of last meals available online.

    I'd find it for you but I'm on a tablet and lazy.
