Walter Kauffmann: Killer deserved fate

May 2, 2014 

Regarding the May 1 editorial “ A shameful execution”: Clayton Lockett spent 43 minutes in pain during his execution. I wonder how long it took Stephanie Neiman, who was shot and buried alive, to die? All the public outcry for a killer and not a word of sympathy for Neiman.

I think it is best to say a mistake might have been made and get on with the next execution.
