Botched Oklahoma execution boosts conservative death penalty foes

Robin Abcarian of the LA Times interviewed me following the botched execution of Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma. Abcarian highlights the many reasons why conservatives are increasingly opposing the death penalty, and she states that the botched execution is likely to bolster more opposition. Abcarian stated, For the rest of us, the ones in whose name the government kills for justice, Oklahoma’s shameful execution serves as a wakeup call about a morally corrupt process. This is one of those rare issues where conservatives and liberals increasingly are making common cause.
