I Don't Care What Their Crimes Are

When reports of the "botched execution" (lovely phrase) in Oklahoma came out, it didn't even occur to me to wonder what the crimes involved were because it didn't matter. Disgust at the actions of the State doesn't have to have anything to do with sympathy for 2 guys (one now dead, one with a stayed execution) who aren't very sympathetic. I don't think the State should have the power to torture and murder its citizens, no matter what they've done. It's really that simple.
