If Obama Has His Way This Rapist and Murderer Would Not Have Died

Let justice be served.


   Floyd Brown — June 13, 2014



Pages: 1 2

On his way to the presidency, Barack Obama said a lot of things…
 
 



He told us he was against same-sex marriage.

He said he opposed new taxes on middle-class Americans.

And he told us he supported the death penalty.

But, like a mirage in the hot Arizona desert, many of Obama’s promises have evaporated.

Most recently, the Justice Department – with Attorney General Eric Holder leading the charge – has begun investigating states that are still using the death penalty.

The inquiry is, ostensibly, the result of April’s execution of convicted killer Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma.

On June 3, 1999, Lockett abducted, beat up, and finally shot 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman. He then ordered Shawn Mathis to dig a grave in a ditch beside the road. With her mouth duct-taped and her hands bound, Neiman was buried alive.
 
 



At Lockett’s trial, prosecutors produced DNA evidence, as well as his fingerprints on the duct tape. According to the trial transcript, Lockett admitted to police that “he decided to kill Stephanie because she would not agree to keep quiet.”

Lockett was convicted of murder, rape, forcible sodomy, kidnapping, and assault. And 15 years later, he was executed.

But as most know, Lockett’s execution didn’t go smoothly. According to Eric Holder, Lockett felt some pain during his execution, which Obama called “deeply troubling.”

Let Justice Be Served

The president went on to say that the review of all death penalty cases in America is necessary: “Racial bias. Uneven application of the death penalty. Situations in which there were individuals on death row who later on were discovered to be innocent… All of these do raise significant questions about how the death penalty is being applied. I think as a society, we have to ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions.”

Traditionally, though, the death penalty has been the domain of the states – and Senator Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire, brought this up with the president.

As a former State Attorney General and prosecutor who’s familiar with the procedures used in death penalty cases, Ayotte disputed Obama’s attempts to meddle with the death penalty:

“This is an issue that has been reserved for the states, and I would hope that the Attorney General, in reviewing this, would not take any kind of executive action, but would instead make his recommendations to the states, and let them act accordingly.”

Don’t count on that happening, though. From day one, the Obama team has displayed an arrogant, go-it-alone attitude on most issues.

What’s more, if anyone is responsible for Lockett’s pain, it’s the U.S. government.

You see, Obama’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) ordered its agents to seize supplies of sodium thiopental – the painkiller ubiquitously used in executions – in 2011, after questions arose about how the drugs were imported.

Oklahoma was then forced to use an untested combination of drugs in Lockett’s execution, which resulted in his painful death. Oklahoma used a mixture of midazolam, vecuronium bromide, and potassium chloride for Lockett’s execution; and his cause of death was ruled a heart attack brought on by the drugs.

As Young Lawyer, Hillary Clinton Defended Child Rapist She Knew Was Guilty



Back when Sen. Ted Cruz was a practicing lawyer, the state of Texas appointed him the defendant for a man by the name of Thomas Alfred Taylor, age 41. Cruz agreed to do it.

Taylor had been accused of luring a 12-year-old girl into his car and raping her. Being accused of something does not mean you are guilty, of course. But according to newly discovered audio recordings, Cruz had no doubt in his mind that his client was guilty as sin.

Taylor raped that 12-year-old, and Cruz admits he knew it fully when he defended him in court. So his strategy to win the case was to attack the character of the raped child.

What you’ve just read is a true story, but I have deliberately changed one of the names in it: Ted Cruz. This really did happen to a lawyer-turned-politician, but it wasn’t the Texas senator.

It was Hillary Clinton.

When Clinton was 27 years old, she was asked to defend this Mr. Taylor. About a decade later, she was interviewed by journalist Roy Reed, the audio of which can be heard here.
 



Some highlights of the interview, or lowlights, if you’re a good person, are when Clinton said that Taylor “of course” denied raping the kid, but that “he took a lie-detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” at which point she laughs.

So Clinton knew Taylor was lying when he denied raping the girl. But she defended him anyway. What do ethics matter to a Clinton?

One of Clinton’s strategies for winning the case was to attack the character of the rape victim. According to a court affidavit written by Clinton, she had “been told by an expert in child psychology that children in early adolescence tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences and that adolescents in disorganized families, such as the complainant’s, are even more prone to exaggerate behavior,” and that the child had “in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body” and that the girl “exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”

Because damning evidence had accidentally been thrown away (which Clinton laughed about in the interview), Clinton was able to get the sentence for Taylor, who pled guilty only to molesting the girl, reduced from 5 years to 1 year.

This is America’s next president.
