The Oklahoma Department of Corrections botched the execution of convicted killer Clayton Lockett Tuesday night, claiming the execution didn't go as planned because of a blown vein.
It was determined he was sedated approximately seven minutes into the execution," DOC Director Robert Patton said. "At that time we began pushing the second and third drugs in the protocol. There was some concern at that time that the drugs were not having the effect, so the doctor observed the line and determined that the line had blown."The second drug in the protocol was vecuronium bromide, which is a paralytic used to stop Lockett's breathing. The third drug in the protocol was potassium chloride, which was used to stop Lockett's heart.Witnesses described a disturbing chain of events that followed. They said Lockett was not unconscious until 6:33, but at 6:36 they said Lockett became conscious again and was mumbling, his muscles tightened, his mouth opened and he was twitching. At 6:37 witnesses say Lockett said "something is wrong." Lockett continued mumbling and moving, even lifting his head and shoulders until 6:39, when DOC officials closed the blinds to keep witnesses from seeing any more.Using newspaper accounts and a database of all American executions, my collaborators and I recently completed the first comprehensive study of botched executions in the United States and documented the ways that different methods of execution go wrong. We examined every execution from 1890 to 2010 and found that no technology has been able to ensure that capital punishment would not, on occasion, become either a gruesome spectacle of suffering or a messy display of incompetence

Oklahoma (Okla Humma - Chahta) word for Red People. Previously, it was referred to as "Indian Territory", it was home to the caddo's, Wichita's and Waco's. before it became a dumping ground, land of exile or a mass concentration camp for Native people who were in the way of the european immigrants. Now it home to more than 33 federally recognized tribes, or what I call First Nations.
In 2014, we have saw acts of racism steming from willful ignorance or deliberate intent to ridicule and dehumanize Native peoples as distinctly unique in their culture, language and spiritual traditions. In recent years, the state actively fought against established treaties and abolished the Oklahoma Indian Affairs Commission after a 43 year history in 2011.
The Red Earth Festival was a replacement for the loss of the National Finals Rodeo after it had left for Las Vegas, in the following years the face of greed continued to grow until now it is nothing but a moneymaking event prostituting the culture of Native peoples.
This show will bring you the truth from those who have lived here and have fought against racism, stereotypes and ignorance. Some things here have never changed. Special guests will be added as we draw close to the show so stay tuned and share this program!
