Death penalty opponents are licking their lips after what occurred in Oklahoma (“Botched execution raises alarms,” Friday).

I feel no pity.

Some oppose the death penalty, but the majority who favor it should prevail.

The drugs being utilized today cost around $2,000. A rope or bullet are a lot cheaper and safer.

Remember, the man executed shot a woman he was robbing and watched two of his buddies bury her alive.

Let’s show some concern for the victim and family members who sit around while convicts utilize our judicial system to the fullest extent, sometimes 10 or 20 years.
